This "tour" was quite interesting and the house was beautiful. We bought the "three house tour" for $20 , which included The Andrew Low House and the Davenport House...worth the $20.

The Juliette Gordon Low house is probably the most famous house out of all of these historic houses. My tour guide was Ruby and she was fantastic, she even told a humorous anecdote about General Sherman which I... More

We chose JGL's home as one of two to tour while on our short visit to Savannah. As a former Girl Scout, I learned a lot about our founder from the young man giving our tour. My husband found the tour surprisingly enlightening and interesting as well! I especially enjoyed learning what a talented artist JGL was and appreciated being... More

She had a very interesting life and many talents that We did not know about even though we have been active with the Girl Scouts. There were several boys and men on... More

Even if you're not a girl scout this is worth visiting. We recommend purchasing a tour of this house in conjunction with the Davenport House tour and Andrew Lowe house tour, more for your money. It took us most of the day to see these three homes.

As a former Girl Scout and on the committee of the our Take the Lead event in Allentown PA, it was very nice to see the history behind the founder of the Girl Scouts. The home was gorgeous and I learned so much about Juliette Gordon Low

My Brownie loved it and is planning a "troop trip" for next year. She learned so much and is excited to share with the other girls at our next meeting. Great outing for a scout!!
