My granddaughter loved this tour. Our guide included her in a scavenger hunt, finding different things during the tour. She asked more questions than anyone in our group. I would definitely recommend this tour.

This place was awesome. Some very rich history and amazing architecture contained inside. My favorite was the dinning room. So many unique features. Take a step back in time and explore how people lived back in the day. Definitely worth a visit during any trip...More

Although I thought the price was high for the tour (it includes two other sites I didn't visit), this tour was one of my favorites. The docent was extremely well-informed about the specific house and the general time period, and the architecture and furniture were...More

We loved the guided tour of the Owens-Thomas House. The house is beautiful, and our guide was knowledgeable about the architecture, the history, and the family who lived there. We really enjoyed seeing the detailed work of the furnishings of each of the rooms.

That's the only way you can tour the house is with the tour guide and is part of the admission price. It seem the tours run about every 15-20 min.

How can you buy 1 house tour? It says you have to buy tickets at their website, but buying one house not an option. We are a family of 5, --$100 is a bit steep for us.Thanks in advance!

I see that you can only buy a ticket that includes all 3 places. I am only in Savannah for the weekend. How long does it take to do all 3? My flight on sunday leaves at 5:51. If I dedicated my Sunday to this, starting when they open at 12, would I be able to make my flight without rushing? (It says our hotel is 22 minutes from the airport)
