Was so excited to finally see this place close up. Didn't do the museum tour but a couple of our other tours spoke and visited this home. Very creeped out about the boy who fell. Yikes!!!

This is a very interesting tour of a beautiful house and an examination of one of Savannah's most interesting characters. It is very much worth the price of admission. I love an old home tour but this one has an extra twist that puts it...More

The tour consists of the first floor and garden not the entire home as you are led to believe. The reason is safety. There is only one exit from the upstairs area so you can forget about seeing the grand pipe organ. Absolutely no photography...More

A very interesting historic home with a very knowledgeable guide. Beautiful architecture and furnishings. I never knew until now the Mercer family never lived here! Nor did I know that Jim Williams' sister still resides upstairs. Definitely worth a visit.

Our guide was very good and thorough with the history. I just felt there wasn't enough to see for the admission we were being charged as it was only one floor.

There is only a guided tour. Parking can be tight in the city, so I would recommend Uber and/or walking.

I can't remember exactly. Less than an hour! Maybe 45 minutes. Depends on how many people ask questions at the end, and if you stick around to hear the guide's answers. You only see the back garden and the 1st floor's 4... More
