Would recommend this tour of the Davenport House. Interesting and knowledgable tour guide. Second, third floors and gardens were the locations available on the tours. Great little gift shop and beautiful gardens.

The Isaiah Davenport House is a middle class home that was the first restoration effort in Savannah 50+ years ago. Brought back to its former beauty, this home is one that everyone can enjoy and gives you a peek into the life of a high end builder in the early 1800’s. Davenport sought to be the best in his profession... More

A very nice tour. The house's first floor,second floor and garden are part of the tour. The tour starts with a brief introduction in the ground floor level next to the gift shop. Isaiah Davenport was a master home builder who learned his craft building ships. The home is period decorated and the home is designed in the Federal style... More

Our tour guide Diane was very professional and knowledgeable about the history of the Davenport family and the home. Most of the house, except the basement (ground level) has been restored to accurately reflect the period when they family resided here. The tour took close to an hour, with a careful explanation provided for each room. The outside garden is... More

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.
