Took the tour while on vacation. Definitely call ahead to reserve a space. It was apparent from the beginning that this tour focussed on the good that Jim Williams has done for Savannah and the stunning array of antiques and art that he amassed. Some mention is made about the movie mainly because it is a part of the house's... More

I loved this tour, it was fact filled and very interesting. If you've read MIdnight in the garden of good and evil you will love this tour it takes you into the story.

We listened to the audio book of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil as we drove to Savannah. Once we arrived, we immediately looked for the Mercer House. The house is stunning. Unfortunately, you aren't allowed to take any photos in the house or in the gardens. Also, you only get to see a few rooms. That's disappointing,... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. The guide was knowledgeable and the lady in the Carriage House was very hospitable. I am definitely a fan of "Midnight", so even though the guide barely referred to it, it was fun to remember what scene had been filmed in what room. I do wish we could have seen the upstairs,...

Beautiful house, although the current occupant is letting the exterior get into a state of disrepair. Guides aren't the best, but the house is worth the trip.

You only get to see the first floor as the top floor is still in use by family. If you have read the books or know the story it's a fun trip through the house. I had heard that they don't talk about the "incident", but our guide did. It was very interesting, I didn't realize how much he did... More

My niece and I were in the first tour group this Saturday morning. The tour guide was extremely knowledgable about all the pieces in the home. It was obvious he cares a lot about the history and stories of the pieces. Of course you can only tour the first floor but if you're coming just because of the movie alone,... More

Fun stories on the walking tour. This is a fund landmark to see on one of the many walking tours of Savannah. Lots of speculation and gossip have lead to quite a reputation for this house

Mercer House is well worth the visit-- but expect that the tour will be short (30 mins or less) and not at all focused on the events in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil- the guides, and William's sister who now lives in the house, clearly want to stay away from that side of things; instead you'll learn...
