The program was very informative, interesting, educational, and fun. In addition to touring these magnificent homes/homesteads, tours of the gardens at various locations were enlightening and beautiful to view. Having Jim Dassatti with his extensive knowledge of the area and its history was a definite advantage. No reading from a prepared tour guide/script by this expert!

A superb program, with its magnificent New England setting and many very intriguing historic sites of interest. The best RS/EH program that I have ever undertaken, augmented by outstanding planning and organization.

This program is historically significant and greatly diversified in its presentation. Our group leader was outstanding in all respects. My husband and I gained more knowledge and experienced more beauty than we had anticipated. Well done!!

If you love gardens, this tour is one you will really enjoy. We happened to be at the peak of the peony season which was a nice bonus but the gardens are truly lovely and very different one from another. The farms were nice too--sustainability is the word, as has been at these farms for many years. Lots of pretty moo-moos; we learned about cheese making at one farm and butter making (with a swing churn) at another. The houses are steeped in history and I enjoyed this tour more because I read about some of the people before I went.
