Went on a Groupon. Tour is about 40 minutes and takes you to all of the rooms on the first and second floor of the home. Amazing original pieces everywhere-nothing is a reproduction. No photos allowed, however. Guide (Harriett) was very informative.

This is a place not to be missed. This tour made history come alive by providing the details of the lives of Andrew Low, his family and his guests, along with the original furnishings that were in excellent condition. Our guide made it an overall great experience.

Tour is about 45 minutes long. Much of the furniture and painting are original. Beautifully restored interior. Our docent, Harriet, was very knowledgeable and offered a good understanding of Andrew Low.

This place shows one how the very wealthy lived during the 19th century but has very little original pieces of furniture and other things that are original to the house. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took her time in answering all our questions even though it was the last tour of the day and closing time.

This is an old and beautiful home owned by Andrew Low. He was a rich man in Savannah for his work in the cotton industry. The tour give you an inside in the family history including his son's marriage to Juliette Gordon Low. This is also the house she passed away in though the bed has been moved to her... More

This was a very beautiful home, with a knowledgable tour guide. I would recommend the 3 house tour which allows access to the Andrew Lowe home, the Juliet Gordon Lowe home, and the Davenport house.

This one would not be on my top list of historic homes in Savannah. However, if like us, you have seen most of the other legitimate historical homes, this is a nice complement to them. The home was built when Andrew Low was the richest man in Savannah. You will learn a bit about Juliette Gordon Low, too, a very... More

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
