Travel today aboard your Starr Tours Motorcoach for Manheim, PA and the Historic Mount Hope Estate. It was built in 1800 as a grand rural retreat for four continuous generations of the wealthy colonial American ironmaster Grubb family. Renovated and enlarged at the height of the Victorian Era, it is a simply delightful estate.
Start with a delicious lunch before taking a step back in time with a Victorian Tea hosted by Miss Daisy Grubb. Daisy was the last of the Grubbs to reside on the estate. Your group will be greeted by Daisy’s socialite friends, dressed in their Victorian finest. They will give both the men and the women a lesson in etiquette before being introduced to Miss Daisy herself.
Throughout the delectable tea service, enjoy savory sweets as you sip on tea and listen to stories of the Grubb family’s time at the estate. Daisy and friends will also chat about the history of English tea.
At the conclusion of tea, your group will enjoy a guided tour of the mansion. As with all events at Mount Hope, you’ll enjoy an interactive environment to truly feel a part of the experience.
End this great day with a tasting in the Winery. Your hosts will guide your group through seeing, sniffing, swirling, and savoring the wine, beer and cider.
Depart for home following your tasting.
