Anyone who has read (or plans to read) the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil will find this house tour fascinating. The art and architecture are interesting, on their own.

My husband and I are big fans of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We loved being able to tour Jim Williams' beautiful old home. He was an amazing antiques collector and restorer. Our tour guide, Max, was awesome! Can't say enough nice things about him! He was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all our questions.

I went on the tour yesterday. I believe the guide was Dan. He was very informative and welcoming. I will definitely go back with friends.

Beautiful home, as featured in the film. Tour guide provides details about the artwork, furnishings and architecture of the home. Tour only includes the first floor of the home, no pictures allowed.

It was great to finally be able to tour this amazing home. Too bad the tours cannot go upstairs at this point.

A very cool house with fascinating renovated interiors and furnishings. Mr. Williams restored items that are in the home, but they are not necessarily to the period of the home itself. Still a nice stop on our self guided walking tour.

My wife and I enjoyed the tour, Max the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the mansion and Mr. Williams' personal items displayed inside the home. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the Savannah area.

We visited several house museums in Savannah, but this was my favorite. Tours start from the carriage house and take you into the back garden area. From there, you enter the breezeway of the home and view four rooms on the first floor of the house (you also get to see the 70's decorated bathroom). You don't go to the... More
