Hats off to Charleston Historical Society for their great app that cookbooks you through the mansion for a self guided tour. Content was interesting and well narrated with lots of opportunities to access extra details on certain subjects.
I went here on a tour by myself while my wife was at a conference. The house is across the street from the Charleston Museum. It was more restored than many of the other historic homes and I prefer that atmosphere. The guide was very...More
IF you enjoy restored homes this one is for you. The audio tour is in my opinion the best way to see the house as it allows you the time to see everything. Make sure you purchase the combo ticket to see the Aiken-Rhett home,...More

I would say about an hour and 15 minutes. The tour is about 40 minutes. The gardens are beautiful but small. You should not really need more than an 1/2 hr before or after the tour. We spent 1.5 hrs there, but we spent a few minutes in the gift shop and the kids took turns on the joggler they have in the garden. The 1.5 hr was more than enough and we actually stretched the visit as long as we could. Enjoy your visit!
