Could not fault our experience. Our guide was engaging and knowledgeable and we all learned something about our own backyard. Great day out and should be done as local school excursions

Hi Debbie thank you for your lovely comments about your visit to the Fort. I'm happy your family group enjoyed their visit and yes $50 is very reasonable for a family group for over 1 hour and 1/2 of history and in such beautiful surroundings.

Highly recommend a visit to the Fort to see all the history and be taken back in time. Very informative tour and our guide who tailored the presentation to the audience.
