Great tour

Toured the house based on the reviews we saw on here and weren't disappointed! Beautiful home and garden, knowledgeable guides, and the tour isn't rushed.

This tour takes approximately an hour. We were the last visitors of the day. Although there were only two of us, our guide took up a lot of time with us and did an excellent job. This house being preserved was the beginning of the restoration of historic Savannah. They are supposed to be restoring the basement in the future.... More

I got a groupon for this attraction so it was fair for what I paid. Our tour person was an older lady, I think het name was Marty.....she was very informative and made it as fun as possible for my 10 year old. Not a lot of furnishings and we only got to see the first and second floor, wish... More

The house is very nicely done. The gardens was lush. Our tour guide was very young and basically did a "scripted" walk through the house. She had no real love or enthusiasm for what she was saying. She was polite but not exciting.

Among the historic homes we toured in Savannah, the Davenport hour was one of the best. The beautiful furnishings, period colors and winding staircase made for a memorable visit. We had an excellent tour guide and really got the feel of life during the era of cotton in Savannah. We definitely recommend this place if you are touring in Savannah.

The builder of this house used it as a showcase for his skills so he could get jobs building more houses. The public rooms show his talents for plaster and wood work. The stair is amazing. The private rooms are not as opulent, but are still impressive.

Great home to visit. Wallpaper is true to period (ugly to be sure). Great stairwell. Average furnishings and contents. Guide was knowledgable and friendly . Basement is now the gift museum and ticket sales, would be nice if they would have restored that as well.

This is a nice tour of a Savannah home turned into a museum. Docent was knowledgeable and gave an interesting and informative tour. I enjoyed the history and getting to know more about the city of Savannah through learning about the previous owners of the house.No parking at the house, but able to park nearby on the street. Nice gift... More

There are more opulent and grand houses to tour in savannah, but this is still a good tour. Felt like maybe the guides could have been friendlier
