I had a special treat while touring the "little white house" in Key West - I was the only person in the first tour of the day so I had the tour guide Jimmy one on one. I had never heard of the LWH prior to coming to Key West. Jimmy made it come alive for me telling me many... More

We went in to the LWH on a whim and we were so glad we did! The house is preserved from the 1950's and is interesting for that alone, but the history of it was fascinating. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful and, as overseas visitors, we were made very welcome indeed.

This was a good tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and not boring at all. I'm not a history buff. Enjoyable, and I recommend for anyone visiting Key West.

The little White House is a must see. Six presidents have used the facilities and probably more to come. "Jimmy" the tour guide has met President Truman and brings the building to life with passion!
