“Wonderful historic tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

For anyone interested in twentieth century history this tour is a must. This is one of the most interesting tours we have taken. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the Truman period come alive and also had post Truman anecdotes of the House. There are lots of original furnishings and designs in the building itself which is in a lovely secluded setting. There are also plenty of photographs and items from the period throughout the building. Lasted about 45 minutes and was well worth the price.

“Step back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Went on about a 30 minute tour of the Little White House. The house has been preserved in the Truman era. The tour guide was very informative and seemed to enjoy interacting with the visitors. A must see for American History Buffs!

“Did the tour of the White House”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The tour was informative and interesting, it was 15/pp and went on for about 40 mins, not super exciting but worth a look if you like history.

“A Site to see in Key West”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

While in Key West stop in and see the Little White House. It's an interesting place to see and to know a handful of other presidents have used this house as well. The other houses on this street are great to look at as well.
