This is the grandest Savannah house I have seen. I especially loved the pocket doors and pocket blinds. They still seemed to move so smoothly you could probably close them with one finger. The dome in the stairway was a very interesting way to deal...More

Great tours given by the docents, who obviously love the house very much. The amount of decorative detail in the house is really mind blowing - unfortunately though, you can't take pictures indoors.

Wonderful, charming and enthusiastic guides brought our tour of Green-Meldrim house to life. It provided a great introduction to the history of the house and Savannah in general. And the house itself is beautiful. This was definitely a highlight of our visit to Savannah

Our tour lasted about 45-60". I guess it depends on the numbers of questions the docents get during the tour. The size of the group would have a bearing on that too, as it takes longer to maneuver the group through the house.
