Being a former Girl Scout, I enjoyed learning about the history of Juliette and her family. Our tour guide was entertaining, very friendly and willing to answer any questions. The house is in excellent shape and has been well-maintained on both the inside and outside. The garden outside is lovely and perfect for pictures. There is also a porch for... More

I toured this house when I was in Savannah back in 2010 and went again when traveling with my daughter this past weekend. I enjoyed it just as much the second time around and learned even more. The house itself is gorgeous and the history of the family is fascinating. Whether you're a former girl scout or not, you will... More

The house is very well maintained with passionate tourguides giving so much information. Since this is the home of the founder of Girl Scouts there were many young ladies on the tour. The tour is able to keep the attention of both the adults and young ones. the area around teh home is lovely as well. Free Wi-Fi

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

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
