My wife was interested in ding the tour since she read the book that coincides with the house. It approx 40 min and the narrator was very good. It is only for 3 rooms and a hallway.

Also...I was there Thursday, June 13, 2019. An elderly gentleman, long time resident of Savannah, was the tour guide. He is fabulous! Ask him anything about Savannah history or the Mercer house history - he knows it all!
