Our tour started at 5:10, so we had the magnificent sunset all the way up the hill and when we arrived at the pool we had a spectacular show waiting for us!
So beautiful and we weren't even inside yet!
The kitchen was fabulous! The faucet handles were huge metal birds! I loved the shadows from the utensils.
The docents were dressed in period clothing and only spoke in 'present day' or Hearst's time in the 1920's and 30's. And, we were guests so our guide talked about OUR dinner, US watching movies later, US swimming in the pool...
I highly recommend going on the Christmas tour at Hearst Castle, it was truly MAGICAL!!!
