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!

As a Girl Scout of 13 years, I really enjoyed visiting the beautiful home of our founder. When I was a junior, I was able to bridge to a cadet in the garden of the home. I really enjoyed revisiting such special memories.

This was the best home we saw as far as original furniture. Really enjoyed the tour. Juliette Low was a very interesting woman, and her story of heartbreak and rebound to start the girlscouts was interesting. She was also a wonderful artist., primarily sculpture

I have been here twice. The house is beautiful and learning about Juliette Gordon Low's birthplace is an eye opener and good learning experience. In May we had a wonderful tour guide, made it come alive. In October we had a tour guide who spoke in a monotone and never looked at the guests. It dampened the experience.
