Rockcliffe Mansion tour

One of the best original mansions we have been through. A very interesting history and a great tour. Our tour guide, Becky, was really great.

The structure, interior and furnishings were amazing. The tour is not expensive ($14 for seniors) and an hour and a quarter long. However, I could have done without the melodramatic tour guide. A little over the top for me.

We visited with 13 and 17 year old girls, and the tour completely captured their interest. Our tour guide, Juan, was very friendly and clearly has a passion for the history of the house, and the house itself was stunning. The tour was around 45 minutes to an hour, and kept the kids' interest the entire time. Truly a lovely... More

This was a beautifully restored mansion. The best part was we got to see almost the entire house. Usually you are restricted to certain areas, so this was a treat. Becky was a very informed tour guide giving us interesting facts about the family throughout the tour. I highly recommend this tour if you are in the area.

Having toured many old homes I was glad to see over half of the furnishings are original. Also it was the first time to see an Egyptian room and Tiffany glass windows. Interesting tour.

Warren was AWESOME. so informative. There were great details and stories about the family who lived in the house. The original and antique pieces they have in the mansion are absolutely amazing to see. This was hands down the best tour in Hannibal, MO! I would do it again!

The mansion has beautiful detailed woodwork, mantels and furnishings. Learning the history of the family and house made the tour a wonderful experience. Thank you to the families that saved the house. Warren, our tour guide, is knowledgeable and detail orientated. Tours help pay for the restoration and other costs of maintaining the mansion.

I loved the tour. I learned a lot about the history of the house, and the family that lived there. The house is beautiful on the inside although it needs work on the outside.
