Juliette Low's family home is a worthwhile Savannah stop. Still has many of the family's actual furniture and family photos. Well versed guide and our tour was very personal. Call to get info. Although we planned on the 6:30 gaslight tour, thank goodness we called. They'd ended three days earlier. Their site is not updated. Don't miss the side yard.... More

As tours of Grand Ole Houses go, this one is pretty great. You are taken into quite a few rooms in the house, and information on the family, the furniture, and the photographs is abundant. The story about Sherman's visit was entertaining and new to me. Learning that Daisy, as JGL was known, was such a fine artist and being... More

My husband and I visited the house and thoroughly enjoyed it, though probably more myself since I was a GS till 8th grade. The movie is fascinating and shows a different side of scouting from what I experienced in the 1950's - they were much more rugged in 1918. Our guide Ursula sadly was not a Scout since they did...

My sister-in-law is a former Girl Scout and wanted to visit the Juliet Gordon Low house. The tour was very informative and taught me a few things I didn't know, even though I grew up in the area. My wife and SIL absolutely loved it. The guides were great and very helpful. My SIL has said for a long time... More

I thought, as a former scout, that I knew a lot about Juliette Low. I was wrong. The docent was excellent and had information I never heard before. What a remarkable woman JGL was. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour.

The house is very interesting but the person who lived in it was more fascinating that I thought. It is well worth visiting and should be a must

The guides in the house are knowledgeable and informative. If you are or were a Girl Scout this is a must see. Be sure to get your JGL Birthplace Pin for you sash-- only place in the world you can buy it.

As a former girl scout, it was pretty neat to see this house and hear Juliette's story. Everything is true to the period and interesting to see. The stories are entertaining. Can see it on your own or as part of a ghost tour at night - both have a fee.

It was very interesting to see how people lived back then as well learning of the founder of the Girl Scouts. Our girls (both scouts) got pins for visiting! Both kids loved the house!
