We took a shortened tour of the House because we were in Georgetown for the wooden boat show. The docent was very informative about the owners of the house and the furnishings. We would love to come back and get the extended tour. Lovely home.

I learned a lot about the Kaminski family and the history behind the house. It was very interesting. I loved the story about the infamous diamond broach and the tea cart. It was a very interesting house to see. The grounds are beautiful, too.

Our tour guide was phenomenal! The wealth of knowledge she shared and her passion for the history was amazing. She engaged our entire family, three to 73. This tour is a must if you're visiting Georgetown.

We loved our visit to historical Georgetown. The antiques in the Kaminski House are beautiful and the stories about the history of this low-country town are very interesting. Georgetown is definitely more than just an industrial town.

When we took this tour we got the added bonus of seeing about a dozen antique wedding dresses on display for a special event. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly and filled with interesting information. The grounds are lovely as well.

The house was amazing & informative. The tour guide was a jerk. We asked one question & he treated us like we were idiots. Needless to say, no one else asked anymore questions. He is the reason we didn’t give a better review.
