We went on a family tour with 7 grandchildren ages 8-16. Everyone of them enjoyed the interaction with the docent. She engaged the kids, kept their interest with interesting details, asked them questions, and gave them a chance to really look around and imagine themselves in the situation of the time. It was an excellsnt tour. I can't remember her name but would like to thank her again for a wonderfulk educational experience for all. We visited on the afternoon of July 27, 2011. Thanks again to Monticello.
