The tour guide was not only energetic but very knowledgeable. She kept the tour moving and left nothing to the imagination. Best historic house tour I've been on in Savannah.

The lady in the shop was very personable. There are many things to buy. The house itself is magnificent, but it looks tired and maybe they should use some of the money they charge to clean it up some.

This was an excellent tour. I'm not one for antiques, but this home was beautifully furnished with an exotic collection of hand picked items. This was a guided tour and our guide, Alexander, was well versed, giving an enthusiastic verbal record of select items throughout the floor. Since this is actually a functioning home, only most of one floor was... More

We went in the off season, so we didn't have any trouble finding parking and only had another couple with us on the tour. Guide has a very pleasant disposition and demeanor. I really appreciate Mrs. Kingston allowing strangers to tour her home that she lives in. Cookie, the cat, provided a homey feel and some entertainment. The staircase was... More

Mostly about the antiques in the house and nothing was said about the events of the book. The book is the only reason most people are even there for the tour, so ignoring it is cheating people out of their money. Again, I would have asked for a refund if I thought I could have gotten it. Antiques were nice... More

Our tour of the Mercer Williams House was exactly what we were hoping for. The house and furnishings are beautiful and the grounds are immaculate. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative and appreciated questions from our small group (there were only four of us total on this tour). It was interesting to see where the famous movie was made... More

So fun to hear the story behind the book and movie "Midnight in the garden of good and evil". Tour guide was really good, house and shop super interesting. One of the better tours!

I love the movie "Midnight" so I was very excited about touring this infamous home. We went for the last tour at 4:10pm and there was plenty of parking on the streets near the house. The tour was $12.50 a person and for that much I think you should really see something. The tour starts in the carriage house and... More

I am not really sure how to rate this place. On a positive side are the many antiques and furnishings of times past, including an interesting guide. On the negative side, anyone having read or watched the movie 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' may feel a little cheated on what is told and able to be seen.
