The actor playing him has been doing so for 26 years and while I never met the real TJ, it felt like we were in the presence of the real TJ. Just terrific.

Family and friends did this tour at the Governor's Palace and it was well worth the investment of time and money. Lots of history and exhibits will give you a sense of how life was back in the 1700's for the privileged and royal.

I too have not heard of a private tour but encourage you to ask. I would think there are others who'd appreciate this service.
