The setting, on one of historic Savannah's many quiet squares, is charming. The very well-informed guide (Richard) unravelled the complicated family history of the owners of this house, with its combination of early 19th-century and Victorian decor, including its connection with the Society of the...More

This was one of our favorite tours in Savannah, and we did them all! The director's passion for the home and its history drew us in and made us feel like guests of the family as opposed to tourists. Learning about the legacy of Alida...More

My son and daughter in law were married in the square across the street and had their reception here! It was perfect! The vintage home and outside area is beautiful! The staff can't be beat! There are tours during the day.

If you only tour one mansion I suggest this one...they take you thru two of the three floors and are thorough in their history lesson. Our guide was Richard (I believe!) and was very patient with questions and just delightful. We actually just happened onto...More

Ok so I know "Hidden Gem" sounds like a corny title but it's true. I didn't find this house in any of my tourism research but stumbled across it by pure chance. It's a beautiful house, the only renovations done were in 1890 and yes,...More

I enjoyed this tour. Why there were extra doors put in a room. The uniqued air venting system and how the owner had the backyard created to look like the rest of the house AFTER she passed.
