The tour spent most of the time talking about her sister Daisy. Very disappointed. Would have asked for a refund if I thought I could get it.

Our tour guide, Michael from Gardendale, was vey friendly and knowledgeable about Ms. Low and her family heirlooms. I appreciated the opportunity to play a quick old hymn on the parlor piano while I was there. I think all girls who have an opportunity to learn out the start of the girl scouts should take this tour!

We had a special night time tour of the house as part of the Ghost tour offered by Old Town Trolley. Nothing scary, but lots of history.

After a member of my circa 1960 Brooklyn, NY (before it was cool) Brownie group found me on FB after (yes I'm aging myself), I had to go to take pictures. Since I haven't lived in Brooklyn since '68 and haven't lived in NY since '82, it was a pleasant surprise to be contacted by someone from my early childhood,... More

The house is very interesting and the guides are very knowledgeable, but they focus more on the family and Girl Scouts than the articles in the rooms. Still, a neat tour and a gorgeous house!

Built around 1820 for the mayor of Savannah, James Moore Wayne, this historic home is more famous for being the birthplace of Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low. But even if you weren't a Girl Scout, you'll find it interesting. The tour guides will tell the story of both the Gordon family and the Girl Scouts, while showing visitors how... More

This was an interesting house to visit. Actually go to the room where she thought up the Girl Scouts. Beautiful furniture, rooms to view.

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to go into the house, time never enough of it. I got lots of information from our bus tour on the history of the house. Still was nice seeing the outside of her birthplace. I highly recommend using Old Savannah Tour bus get the hop on hop off ticket worth the five extra dollars.
