Perfect for history lovers. I liked the guided tour with the headphones. I could move at my own pace and liked the quiet private feel

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.

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

We took the audio tour and learned a lot about early Charleston. There is new emphasis on the enslaved people of the house, which give you a new perspective.

Gorgeous home.However you really only see a few rooms . I would not recommend as I felt it was grossly overpriced . I realize it takes a lot of money and time to restore properties but for us this was just not worth it.

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... More
