Very nice tour of home and slave quarters. Is a package deal if you also want to see art museums, and worth the price.

Savanah is an old city and the buildings around the various squares were built in the 1800's. The Owens-Thomas house is no exception. Entering the home you step back in time into a world of privilege. Not only do you learn about the various owners,...More

Beautiful southern home (architecturally), depicting an extremely wealthy family, who were slave owners. The tour is rich in history, with period furnishings throughout the house. Not the best tour I have ever been on, but very nice.

Nice house, ok tour. I think it’s over-priced for what it is, and I have been to far more beautiful stately homes with more interesting things to see/hear for less.

Beautiful southern home with on site slave quarters. Rich in Savannah history. The story of how it was built and the families that owned it, were important to the early history of Savannah.

Beautiful Architect, great history how the house was built during those times, and the role of the slaves in the house and just how the division of human life under the bases of how this country was to discovered under the grace of God.

This beautifully preserved residence is a living history lesson. The disparity of the haves & havenots has never been clearer.

Yes. Be sure to go very early to the Owens-Thomas House. They only can take so many people on each tour. They can fill up quickly. The docent told us to show up early and we were very glad we did.

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.
