As an English major who attended a Southern college (and, thus, read many Southern authors), I was excited to tour Flannery O’Connor’s childhood home. The tour did not disappoint. The tour guide was full of excitement and facts. She clearly loves both her job and...More

Excellent! The hour-long tour was very informative and entertaining. Our guide, Jo, obviously loves her job. She is passionate, yet laid back and friendly. A must for fans of Flannerey O'Conner fans and anyone who appreciates literature, faith, or history.

I'm a really bad literature major and didn't even realize this was here. I was exploring the cathedral (also recommended) and saw it pop up on my map by accident... SO glad I did. Jo was a fantastic docent, geekily and wholly into O'Connor's story...More

I've only read one book of Flannery O'Conner's stories, so I wouldn't call myself a superfan, but I enjoyed viewing her childhood home. The docent was a British woman (I don't recall her name), and she was lovely.

I love Flannery O'Connor's writing, but now I will understand it in a new way, having toured every room of her childhood home. Jo gives a great tour, including her impression of the newsreel featuring young Flannery as the girl who taught chickens to walk...More

A definite must do when visiting Savannah. As a local tour guide, I can easily say that this tour was by far one of the best tours I've had in Savannah. Jo, our docent, was fantastic! Very informative, humorous, and laid back. The tour gave...More

We took the abbreviated tour at the end of the day. We were only charged half-price. The tour we took gave good insight into the upbringing and formative influences on Flannery O'Connor and her writing. It was really worth it and is one of the...More
