Very personalized visit, starting from the greeting at the front door, to the tram driver and tour guide. They took great care of us, compiled a package of materials for other suggested places to visit while in Georgia. The home is beautiful, and the guide is in no rush to get you through. They take plenty of time to answer... More

A very well run and gloriously preserved piece of Georgian history. My compliments to the staff who loving care for this estate because it shows. The tour of the house is a must as you learn the history of the family who planted and cared for this beautiful home. Then a self guided tour through the gardens at your leisure,... More

I decided to visit Hills and Dales on a whim after seeing it on a tourism information website and was not disappointed. I went on a Sunday afternoon in March and there was no one there but me. After watching the short video on the history of the property I was given a guided tour. The tour was fantastic, you... More

The tour started with a short and informative movie about the history of the house and owners and gardens. Then a shuttle took the docent and I to the house, I was the only one there so I did get a personal tour and it was marvelous. It was a joy, and afterward I went down to the greenhouse and... More

My family visited the house for my mother's birthday. I had planned to have a picnic and let me tell you, every staff member was thrilled that we came to celebrate with them. Our tram driver helped us find a perfect spot to eat. They have tables and great grassy spots that are perfect. The house tour was wonderful. I... More

Went on a trip to see the Christmas lights at Callaway Gardens. Stayed at a hotel in LaGrange vs at Callaway Gardens, to save some money. Looked for things to do, found Hills & Dales Estate. Tour is guided and very informative. I can't think of any room we didn't enter. Not very expensive. Garden guide was equally knowledgeable. I... More

It was a Saturday morning and we were the only ones on our tour. Alex our host was very knowledgeable and the home was a great adventure. The day was very cold and windy so we were not able to enjoy the gardens as much as we wanted. Don't miss this one.

We visited on a weekday in October, when the weather was picture perfect, and nearly had the place to ourselves. House tour was interesting and informative, but the garden and grounds are what you really want to see. Gardeners were available to answer questions, and supplied a ton of information without even being asked. Use the garden map from visitor... More
