When we took this tour we got the added bonus of seeing about a dozen antique wedding dresses on display for a special event. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly and filled with interesting information. The grounds are lovely as well.

The house was amazing & informative. The tour guide was a jerk. We asked one question & he treated us like we were idiots. Needless to say, no one else asked anymore questions. He is the reason we didn’t give a better review.

We spent the day in Georgetown, SC and had a fascinating tour of The Kaminski House. Susan, our tour guide, was an excellent and well-informed docent and clearly enjoyed telling us about the people, the House, and the furniture! A well spent hour+.

The Kaminski House Museum has beautiful gardens with mature live oak trees high on a bluff overlooking the water. It is located at the southern end of the Harborwalk boardwalk. Very nice gem and great photo spot.

This was well worth the drive from our stay in Myrtle Beach. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly... we enjoyed learning about the history of the home. Be sure to stroll down the Georgetown Harborwalk and visit the shops/restaurants while you're there.
