Did the tour on Saturday, was a great tour, very informative and factual. Too bad the slave quarters were closed and you could not tour them, of course they did not discount the tickets due to that.

This home museum makes an excellent effort to recreate what these magnificent homes looked like when inhabited. Period furniture and artwork, sometimes even the originals, occupy the rooms. This is a stop on the hop-on-off trolley tours. It takes about an hour, after you get...More

This was such a disappointing and terrible way to end our day of touring Savannah. Shame on you. I would not recommend this tour. Our tour guide (Jacki) from the very start used an inappropriately aggressive script on the horrors of slavery and how the...More

Our guide was excellent, and you get to tour the whole house, unlike some of the other homes. Your ticket purchase also included three other places to visit with no extra charge.

I enjoyed the history and architecture of this house. Lots of history. Good guide. I recommend a tour of this house along with the museum and Jepson Center package

The property is fascinating, and there is so much history to learn about on the level of this single home. The historic interpreter was very knowledgable and handled some of the less pretty aspects of our history with such candor and grace.

Our guide was incredible knowledgable, passionate and informative. This is not your average mansion tour. It was as much about the people who lived there was also who was enslaved there. So many thing were special about the home and so too were the residents.

That's the only way you can tour the house is with the tour guide and is part of the admission price. It seem the tours run about every 15-20 min.
