This was a trip my mom and I have had talked about for 40 years. We made it! It was fun to learn about Juliette Low and see where she lived. The staff was fun and full of energy except in the gift shop which was run by 20 year olds. I really liked seeing the dolls from over the... More

I went along with someone who is involved in Girl Scouts wanted to visit so she could tell her scouts about the place. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable, very pleasant and gave interesting backgrounds in great details. I learned a lot about Daisy Low from the tour. The house was well restored to her era, rooms, furnitures, with all... More

I was not a Girl Scout and neither is my daughter so I wasn't sure how interesting it would be, the house had a lot of original furniture and artwork by Juliette. She really was a remarkable and talented women. Truly an inspiration. I found it really interesting. I would recommend it

My husband and I toured three homes while visiting Savannah. The value for visiting three is much better than going one by one. We saw three for 20.00 each versus 9.00 for one. The homes here are not that large in comparison to say, Newport, RI so the tours do not take more than 30 minutes and that is with... More

We loved visiting this house and learning all about Juliette Gordon Low's story and place in history. It's a great house and the tour was both good and informative. It was interesting to see all her art work and sculptor as well. Her life was a fascinating story.

This was a very nice tour. The guide was informative and pleasant. I learned so much about Daisy, as she called JULIETTE Lowe. You could almost see how life was at that time, and felt the love that was in that house.

Despite being a troop leader, we were very interested in touring the museum and another tour guide recommended the Birthplace as one of the best to see. The period home and furnishing has been superbly preserved. Our tour was too short and I longed to hear more! The gardens were very pretty. It was a bit warm in some of... More

I got three other people to come on this tour with me. I was the only former Girl Scout. The other three people, including my husband and son, said they were glad they took the tour. The tour is only 30 minutes long, so it wasn't going to kill them anyway. As a former scout I thought the tour was... More

As a former Girl Scout & leader, I appreciated the historical significance. My husband just viewed it as another historical home!
