This was an extremely informative tour. As a former girl scout I appreciate the person who lived here, but even more so I was impressed with her talents and ablities that were displayed on various pieces of furniture, dishes, ironwork, etc. on display throughout the house. She was an amazing woman as anyone will see when they visit her home.... More

When visiting the historic district of Savannah, this is a place not to be missed. Our guide was well informed on the personal history of Juliette Gordon Low, her accomplishments including the formation of the Girl Scouts.

This place is neat for any girl scout yearning to learn about the history of their organization. It's very neat to see local troops volunteering their time to keep the place clean. The house is filled with "period" pieces and only about 40% of the family's belongings as it was converted to an Apt. building for a while. This is... More

There is SO much more to know about Juliette Gordon Low! This house and the tour helps explain more. I would also recommend the "birthplace of Girl Scouts" as well as her home as an adult (The Andrew Low house).

This home is so lovely and historic! The furnishings are beautiful as well as the story that goes along with the home and family. We had a gracious lady as our tour guide that told the life of the family so well! We'll worth your time and money!

Loved how it wasn't completely closed off (i.e. minimal roping off & glass cases) but things weren't mentioned about Daisy's upbringing.

I stopped with my kids while visiting for the day from HHI. I stopped with my two kids who are both scouts and they really enjoyed our tour. It was a little pricy ($10 for adults) so I just took the kids while my husband geocached around the historic area. The kids both enjoyed the tour and the antidotal stories... More
