The whole "founder of the girl scouts" angle is played down quite a bit in favor of the patriarch and his history. You are looking at bedrooms and parlors in a 40-or-so minute tour at $10 per person. You had better be a fan of antiques and history to appreciate this tour. We were disappointed that the basement was not... More

My wife and I recently visited Savannah and took a very interesting tour of the Juliette Low house. There is much more history learned in the tour about Juliette and the house then we expected and that made the tour quite worth the time and cost. It would have been even better, and an excellent rating, if our tour guide... More

Great tour of a beautiful home and garden. Learned a lot we did not know about Juliette Gordon Low--an amazing woman.

I didn't know Juliette Gordon low's story, really, and enjoyed it and the home she was born in. Our guide was clearly a fan of her and knew her stuff, too. We had a Woodrow wilson expert (responsible for that home) and she held her own with him, no easy feat. I enjoyed it more than I expected to.

I was a Scout and it was fun to learn about the founder and her life. It's on the stop of most of the city tours.

This is an interesting house, and full of history. The docent indicated that Low had formed the girl scouts right in one of the rooms in the house, but other tour guides claimed it was in the carriage house of her father in law. I enjoyed it, but was not blown away.

We visited this while we were in town for me to run the Savannah full marathon. My daughter is a Girl Scout and she loved it! Our guide was fantastic, and we appreciated the discounts for being registered with the Girl Scouts (parents too!). My daughter was disappointed that we couldn't take pictures inside, as she wanted to do a... More

We purchased a ticket that included tours of all three homes. We started at Davenport House, then Juliette Birthplace then last to the Andrew Low House. Ticket price reasonable for all three houses. All three tours were excellent and all homes well worth seeing. If I could recommend something - it would be to visit the homes in the same... More

Fun night - stories about historic ghosts. Got many new insights about "back in the day" life of Savannah. Walking distance to pick up tour bus.

I was visiting Savannah with a group of friends, a few of whom were very involved in girl scouts both as a child, and as a mother of girl scouts, although I had not been, so personally didn't think this was anything that was going to be special, but it was great. Learning the history of the Gordon and Low... More
