Before beginning to tell of the home I must say that the tour may have been better if the guide was nicer. This lady was harsh and rude!!!! She treated us as little children snapping at adults and children alike if they appeared not to be paying attention to her. She tried to make me leave my backpack in a... More

This place has a varied and interesting past, and our guide was fabulous--ready and eager to answer questions, knowledgeable, and kind. I recommend it!

This was a very neat and informative tour. Had a great tour guide by the name of Eleanor who was very southern and sweet will do this again.

A good tour. The guide did a great job of explaining the features of the house as well as the importance of some of the features in day to day life in Charleston.

The tour was interesting and the tour guide was knowledgeable about the history of the house and the family. The furniture was beautiful. It was definitely worth touring. However, my husband and I have been on tours of several of the historic houses and did not feel this was as appealing as some of the other homes. It is definitely... More

Interesting tour. The guide did a very good job of explaining both the important architectural features of the house but gave a good feel for what life was like in Charleston during that time. Even our teenage kids enjoyed it!

Very nice example of charleston architecture. Good history and stories of house on the tour. 3rd floors are off limits on most houses due to fire department restrictions (no 2nd exits). Very nice examples of original furniture in the house. Lots of tall, scottish made pieces. Enjoy the gate temple on the south side and don't miss the historical markers... More

This is a wonderful house and a great place to start your tours of Charleston's historic buildings. The Adam architecture is on full display inside and out in this well maintained and well presented masterwork. The staircase to the second floor is the highlight of the house. One of the few places in the city where parking is NOT a... More

This was one of 9 plantations/museums we visited using the Charleston Historic Passport. We did it in 2 days, but needed to spend an extra $10 and see them over 3 days. We especially loved that we saw and learned very different venues and the history all complimented each place, with no contradictions in the "story line." We almost skipped... More

Did several home tours in Charleston and Savannah. This is an excellent tour with a superb home restored to its period with excellent furnishings and guides. Can take photos unlike some tours. The tour lasts about 30-mins and runs every hour and half hour. Parking across the street at the visitor center and a free trolley stop.
