I did not tour the house but its nice on the outside and the history significance is really true and refreshing in such a bustle of modern day society.

WE visited here with the Ghost and Gravestones tour. It was interesting, glad we went but nothing I would pay to visit again at a fee beyond the tour.

Lovely home, Reasonably timed tour. A must see if you are or were ever a Girl Scout. My 11 year old has been involved in Girl Scouts since Kindergarten and this was a nice thing to share with her. My husband enjoyed it as well. Interesting window into wealthy lifestyles of the time.

We did it. We were there only with our family but we had an eight year old was a girl scout so we went to see this house. It was the only one we could afford since we were a working family. It did give us a great feeling for the inside of some of the stately houses in Savannah... More

I have to say after taking my troop to the home of their founder, Juliette Gordon Low, I felt a bit disappointed. The troop worked hard for a year, selling pies, cookies and a car wash only to be given 15 minutes for this and 15 minutes for that. Not to mention the cost for the events (no more that... More

My wife, GS leader, so thoroughly enjoyed the founder of the Girl Scouts. I enjoyed the history and the well presented house.

Our tour had over 30 people. Someone miscounted. There were small kids that had no interest in the house. It is beautiful but I would have liked to know more about the house and less about the Girls Scouts. No offense meant to Scouting.

My family (including two Girl Scout nieces) and I took the tour. It was very informative, the staff was friendly and made the tour fun. It was very interesting to see many items Juliette had painted or sculpted herself (she was very talented) and to see some of the original furniture and accessories (hers and those of her family).

As with all historic settings, the quality of the tour depends on the docent. We bought a triple ticket which included the Juliet Low House w two art museums. Lots of scouts of all ages there paying their respects.
