This is a beautiful home in excellent condition. Our tour guide explained that this is a preservation home meaning that it was well taken care of over the years and did not need to be restored. Worth a visit.

This was the first of many house tours taken and by far the best. The lady who was our guide knew the story of the house and presented it in a most professional - not canned - manner.

Juliette Gordon Low's marital home is stunning with artwork and period furniture galore. It's easy to see how she was inspired by living in homes like these.

The Andrew Low house is a must see when visiting Savannah. The original period furniture built by famous cabinet makers, plaster cornices, carved woodwork and wrought iron balconies and railings have been beautfully maintained and showcase exceptional conservation efforts. The original garden layout was also discovered and restored so the authenticity is complete in every aspect. The house is located... More

Our guide was informative and did not dwell too long on any aspect of the house. She kindly answered all questions. This is a lovely house and worth a visit to grasp the historic charm of Savannah. This tour was just right.

Touring Savannah we had several home tours on our list. This one we overlooked. Then we saw an ad in paper for free admission to active duty military.

We added this on to our trolley tour and it was a good $7 spent. The tour guide was very knowledgable and loved to expound on different pieces of information about details of the house. Make sure you go in the butlers pantry-- you have to ask. Highlights were the piano, mirrors and fabulous upstairs bathroom!

My first suggestion for historic house tours in Savannah would be The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace otherwise known as the Wayne-Gordon House. To continue the thread of history begun there, go to the Andrew Low House. Andrew Low was a cotton factor in Savannah whose son married Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts of USA. The house is... More

This home is one that you can't miss while visiting Savannah. The home is beautiful and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. No photography is allowed in the home.

Nice historic home, well preserved and original furnishings but the smell of sewage really ruined it for us.
