Be taken back in history on a tour of the Gamble House. You may need reservations on weekends. Beautiful home built in an era when quality construction and detail was valued by builders. Docent lead tours take you through this gorgeous home whisking you back in time. Well worth the visit.

The Gamble house offers tours which detail the fascinating architecture of Greene and Greene. Well worth the time, and a great activity for guests to the area.

Arranged a private behind the ropes tour, took about 2 hours. Docent was very knowledgeable. Well worth it.

If you have any interest in bungalows and arts & crafts style furnishings, go visit the Gamble House. It's been beautifully maintained and provides a true introduction to the beauty of an era when wintering in Pasadena attracted the major MidWest families. Take a guided tour as the docents are quite well-informed. We marveled at the glass art and wood... More

The architect designed this home for the Gamble family of Proctor and Gamble fame. They were fresh air addicts and each bedroom has an extended veranda where they had their beds and slept out of doors except for inclement weather, I suppose. The design theme goes from the entry stained glass design, copied in the furniture pieces. A beautiful home.

Went here last year and it was really a great tour. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. If you like architecture at all, you will enjoy seeing this craftsman style house.

Extraordinary house, full of Arts and Crafts details. Lovely grounds, and great bookstore. The architects worked in style parallel to Frank Lloyd Wright.

If you are into design or architecture this home is not to be missed. There is so much to see and learn about the construction/design of this home down to the tiniest of details. Even the straps that attach the downspouts to the home are beautiful. The tour takes about an hour. I don't remember our docents name (slender man... More

I missed the Tour by half an hour. However, The Gamble House is a gem. There are different versions of Tours that you could take. The nature of the Tours here is informative. For Art and Craft enthusiasts and for those of you that wish to learn more about Pasadena, about this iconic house itself, I would strongly recommend you... More
