My husband and I totally enjoyed ourselves. Our guide was knowledgeable, very nice, and we learned so much in our time. Even getting a bit of rain and having to slow down for a few was even nicer.

Nice little Fort. The ferry was out of service still so we only got to see from the other side. Loved the trees there. Got pictures! Surroundings were nice. They have a walking trail, but did not go on.

The guided part of the tour takes about an hour. After that you are free to tour the museum and play games at your own pace.
