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.
Full of charm. Wonderful.
A very beautiful home. It captured the feeling of life in Savannah
Viewed other houses and this tour was by far the most authentic . Very knowledgable
A wonderful experience. If you love southern history and the history of old Savannah, I would highly recommend the tour.

Guide was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. It was a great learning experience.
The house was beautiful and the tour guide ( I believe her name was Pat Moore?) was so enthusiastic and passionate about all the information she shared, keeping the tour quite interesting. We were also allowed to wait in the garden rather than out on the sidewalk before the tour actually began.
