Was very pleased with this tour. We tour homes whenever we can and this tour did not fail us. So happy that it's now open to the public,
Diane our tour guide was excellent. She told so much about the History of this beautiful elequent home and in such an interesting fashion it made you want To Have known the original owners and see the house buzzing with activity in that era. Would highly recommend this tour as a must see to friends . Thank you f
Our host, Richard, was engaging, entertaining, and his knowledge of the home was impressive. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
My docent was extremely knowledgeable and excited about the new information received about the family. Enjoyed my brief stay in this lovely home.
Beautiful home, wonderful staff.
Tour was interesting and the guide was knowledgable and pleasant. I would like to have heard more about the earliest owner rather than the later.
Such a lovely home, so very well preserved. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Wonderful tour...learned a lot of history of Savannah as well!
Excellent tour guide!

The tour guide lady was full of very interesting history about the home and it's past residents. WRP Soc. of the Cin. Member
We absolutely loved the house. It was very interesting to learn about the history of the owners and how the house came to be known. We were disappointed that the tour wasn't a bit longer. It was said to be a 40 minute tour and it ended up being 20 minutes. Also our tour guide, Richard, seemed frustrated with us when we would stop him to ask a question. Maybe he is new and wanted to make sure he told us all about the house but we love old homes and just wanted to learn more. Overall it was a beautiful home and we enjoyed seeing it. Thank you - The Boedker Family

I think that I was so spoilt by the elderly lady that gave such a wonderful tour in 2014 ,that this tour could not match hers.
