Presentation of the history of this home was done beautifully by our guide through the structure. Enjoyed the tour and it was definitely a must see while in Savannah, GA.

This house is amazing. We are allowed to tour the first floor and gardens. The upper floors are not part of the tour because the family still lives in the house.

This tour was awesome. Even though we were not allowed upstairs there was enough on the first level to satisfy us. I wish the tour was a little longer but it was still a five star tour!

Our guide was great. She provided so much detail about the history of the house, the people that constructed it and the people who lived here.

Don't miss this if you enjoy fine antiques, history and interior design. Mr. Williams was a genius! The furnishings and the way he put things together was pure genius!

There are many reviews from disappointed tourists complaining that the Mercer Williams House tour is a rip-off. These would have been the same people who over 150 years ago followed the sign "This Way to the Egress" at P.T.Barnum's American Museum and found themselves outside....More

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