This tour was actually very interesting and we were pleasantly surprised we enjoyed it so much. Our guide was very informative and we enjoyed learning about the Low family. Well worth the admission with the Living Social Coupon.

The tour was very nice. The guide knew more about the furnishings than the family history. She said very little about Juliette Gordon Low. Juliettle Low is the main reason most people tour that home. There were hardly any Girl Scout artifacts displayed and the tour guide failed to mention the Girl Sout council museum in the carriage house. She... More

My wife and I love to tour historic homes, and we enjoyed the visit to the Andrew Low House. The tour guide was knowledgeable and the home was in excellent condition. Unlike a lot of historic homes where items are from other collections, a large number of the furnishings and objects in the home were originally owned by the Low... More

I really enjoyed the tour of the house. Our tour guide was friendly and personable. He didn't have a script memorized. He kind of went with the crowd. He was able to answer every question asked.

The Andrew Low House is indeed one of Savannah's special treats. The informative, very charming guide told the interesting story of a hardworking immigrant who found success in America and the lovely house he was able to build for his family. The furnishings are just beautiful and everyone in the tour seemed to enjoy it as much as my husband... More

Andrew Low I was one of the if not the wealthiest man in Savannah in his day and his house was equally a symbol of his wealth and has been preserved for us to see how he lived in ante bellum Savannah. This is a true rags to riches story of a Scot come to America who gained fortune and... More

You must acknowledge the City of Savannah and the historical society for the pristine and period correctness in maintaining the many homes on the "Squares" in Savannah. The guides in each home are extremely knowledgeable about the homes history and very pleasantly will answer any questions you may have. The historical tie-in this has to other homes (Juliette Gordon Low... More

Went to the Low House with GS Troop as part of a pilgrimage. All three ladies working there had a chance to educate young growing minds and expand the perspective of future leaders. Instead, they all seemed equally annoyed by the mere presence of our young ladies. Our tour guide, the youngest if the three ladies, was interrupted repeatedly by... More

Andrew Low's home was inherited by William Low (who married Juliette Gordon Low). It was a very beautiful home and while Andrew Low lived there he added a 3rd floor for possible grandchildren living there, but no grandchildren ever lived with him. The home had a room especially for relatives or friends staying for periods of time. The room had... More

The house is beautiful, although nothing particular about it really stands out in my memory. Maybe I saw too many house museums that day! Part of the problem was that our tour guide was a bit robotic and didn't really arouse much enthusiasm. There is a pretty garden out front. Another bonus is that the free DOT shuttle stops right...
