nice place, cool tour. A tad expensive at 15 per, but it was expected i guess. Tour guide was nice and she knew a lot of info. Seems from her demeanor that it may have been better a year ago. Moral was low for some reason....

I've visited many historic homes but this was the most enjoyable. As Girl Scouts my daughter and I had a special interest but I really think anyone would love this tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and fun. He even told a wonderful ghost story. The house is immaculate. It's beautifully furnished and maintained and contains many of JGL's family... More

For Girl Scout aficiondos this is a must see; for others it will not hold as much interest or appeal. The home has been restored and houses many interesting artifacts from the life of the founder of Girl Scouts of America.

The tour guide was excellent by educating everyone and creating a great interest in the life of Juliette Gordon Low and her birthplace. I learned many interesting facts about her and her life and found this an enlightening tour. The furniture and details regarding the interior of the home were very interesting.

If you have a Girl Scout in the family, a tour of the Juliette Gordon Low house is a must. My daughter is 11 years old and she absolutely loved it. She said it was one of her favorite things to do while in Savannah. The house is, of course, beautiful but the history is what makes it. Our tour... More

What a thrill, coming from a Scouting family with Eagle Scouts, Order of the Arrow and my Mom even having her Wood Chuck Badge, we lived & loved Scouting. I was an Unofficial Boy Scout & Girl Scout to an awesome Brownie Leader! Then was a Leader Myself! This trip to Mrs Low's Home was just priceless

We had read many stellar reviews of this home tour. It was a gorgeous home but our tour guide was horrible. She spoke so quickly that you could not understand her at all. She was clearly not engaged and appeared very tired and disinterested. For the price of this tour we expected a much different experience. I would skip it.... More

We decided to go here on our last day. We were not expecting the incredible story behind Juliette's life outside of the founding of the girl scouts. She was a very interesting person and her life story from when she was a child onward was fascinating. The house was a great example of a home of that period and a... More
