There are multiple tours of this house, and each one offers a focus which I'd like to know about. The house is the only 'tourable' craftsman house of this era in Pasadena, and the tour is worth the cost. The tour guide was outstanding; she knew many details which arose through questioning, in addition to her standard overview of all... More

If you love the original craftsman designs and the Green & Green style of architecture this is a must. It's a lovely tour with well informed guides full of history about the house. Included is a walking tour of the surrounding block which contains many more classic craftsmen homes and their history. It's bit off the beaten path of Old... More

The history and architecture of this house if legendary. The tours offered are excellent! If you have any interest in art and crafts movement, beauty in general, and/or history of the time it is a must see! I really have been impressed each time I have gone to visit.

This is a most interesting home in an historic section of Old Pasadena and established a national style. Walking through made one appreciate unique Americsn ingenuity.

Love the Gamble House - this is a regular stop when we have visitors in from out of town. The book store has something for everyone too.

I have always been fascinated by the "free type of architecture" which is used in this magnificent house. It is a home to desire to live in. The help was wonderful and we were able to see as much of this great house as was possible on one sunny afternoon. GO THERE

We saw on Trip Advisor the the house was open from 10 to 4 so we went. We entered the bookstore only to be told the the hours and days listed were for the bookstore and not the house. At 1pm on a Tuesday the house was not available to tour. I think their web site was deplorable! The days... More

Enjoyed the 1-hr docent led tour today (Sunday afternoon). Very busy but extremely well-organized; "flow" of people through the house is carefully managed. Perhaps the best ever Arts and Crafts home tours I have ever participated in--and left me with enthusiasm for learning more.

The Gamble House, home of Proctor & Gamble family member David Gamble, is a classic example of Greene & Greene Arts and Crafts architecture. The home is located in Old Pasadena and is also a short walk from some good restaurants and shops. The tours last about an hour and are docent led. The weekends tend to be very busy,... More
