I would recommend this tour to natives or visitors to the Atlanta area. I will warn you in advance that it may take you all day even though tours only last about an hour and tours start on the hour @10am- 3pm. All homes had something different. We started with the Smith Plantation as it was a little farther than... More

We almost missed it by only seeing two of the three, but our schedule changed last minute and we stayed in town long enough to complete the final tour. And the last one was the best. The tours start every hour on the hour and we found that we were not able to finish one tour and make it to... More

I suggest buying the Trilogy Tour Pass for $18 at the Roswell Visitors Center. The website is confusing and offers incorrect info (i.e. There is ONLY one home on the tour that does NOT take charge cards: Archibald Smith Home... The website states only cash for all three. Additionally, the contact phone number never worked for me and I tried... More

We did all three sites. It took us two days to accomplish since we started late the first day. But all three are well worth the time to explore.

Well worth the small amount to visit all three homes. The docents are very charismatic and informative. The area is so rich in history. The authentic furniture and household items/clothing were so fascinating! I recommend starting with a ten, then eleven o'clock tour, then go to one of the local restaurants for lunch (like The Public House), then go to... More

I recommend this combo package to see 3 historic homes in Roswell: Bulloch Hall, Barrington Hall and Smith Plantation. The tickets don't expire so you don't have to see them all in one day. Stop by the visitor's center to get a map and some background info on the area.

Always take visitors from out of town to these houses. So much history in Roswell. If you can only do one house, do Bullock Hall...home of Teddy Rosevelt's mother. Each house has it's own unique history and all have lovely furnishings. The docents give great talks. At Christmas, Bullock Hall has an enactment of Mittie Bullock's wedding (get tickets early)....

We really enjoyed this tour. Have visited all sights before but had company in who wanted to see them. I enjoy having different people in the houses to give you the history. Each one usually has an area that they are particullary interested in. Probably wouldn't be interesting to younger children. Each house is about an hour tour

It is a trek but if you're intersted in historical sites go here. The tours are very informative on the history of the house. Plus Rosewell is a beautiful town with amazing antique stores. I would buget 1 hour per home maybe and half an hour if you also want explore outside too.

The value of information to see these three estates is unmeasurable. I enjoyed each visit. The docents are very informative and courteous.
