We must have been on a quiet day as there was only the two of us on the tour and Sean our guide was so knowledgeable and easy to talk to we spent the first twenty minutes on the front porch talking. It was an interesting house with some quirky features and the $10 ticket included the house next door.... More

Listening to a choral concert and a great band named Project 9 on the 4th of July was truly epic here. This house is older than this country. Go check it out!

The house itself was beautiful, especially the grounds around it. Right on the water, with a path down to the bank and overhanging live oaks, a huge porch in the big white house. Inside there are interesting rooms furnished with the original furniture. The last family to own the house were world travelers so there are some knickknacks from their... More

The first is the oldest and has lots more interesting details. The grounds overlook the water. It was very relaxing. Well worth your time if you enjoy history of old houses and decorative... More

Our guide was very good, and patient with our many questions. It's a beautiful setting, and the house is filled with beautiful things.

We visited the home during our first week in Georgetown. We were able to learn a great deal about the background of the home, the families and the history of the area. The tour guide was new but well briefed. We were able to ask questions and have them answered thoroughly. There is also an excellent gift store on the... More

My husband went to play golf at Wedgefield Plantation so I went to Georgetown nearby. The Kaminski House is in the Historic downtown district. The tour guide Diane was a delightful lady that really knows the history of the house. It isn't a giant plantation house but the antiques inside are beautiful and you get to see the house next...

Excellent tour of an historic home on the waterfront in Georgetown. We had a fairly knowledgeable guide. This home was right across the street from our B&B.

Small Museum with lots of memorabilia. Good if you want to kill an hour or so. I like the Original log books, very interesting.

The house tour includes the history of the house and family, as well as the period furniture. I would recommend this tour as part of a day spent in Georgetown, SC.
