Fascinating Tour

I think architects and engineers would find this tour especially interesting. The emphasis was not on the "stuff" in the house but on the design of the house.

We got a Groupon to go visit the Davenport House. It's very well maintained. It was nice to get insight into how life used to be here in Savannah. Our tour guide was very informative. The tour lasts about 45 minutes, and it's only 2 floors you get to explore, the third one is off limits for now. Totally worth... More

I took this tour to start my morning as it is close to where I am staying. I found it to be a beautiful property and a good insight into life in the 1800's. Although the guide didn't know the answers to all the questions she was pleasant and easy to talk to. Good way to start the day!

Excellent Home from the 1800s rescued and restored in an great way. Significant in several ways as to history and the group which restored it. This group started the revival and restoration of many structures in the Historic District of Savannah.

The remarkable thing about this house was that the owner left a detailed list of the furnishings. So, the furniture follows his list in purchasing period pieces. The guide also shares old pictures and examples of things to pass around. For example, pillows stuffed with moss, pine needles, etc.

Recently took a guided tour of the Davenport house. We had a nice time and the tour guide Debbie was exceptional. It took about an hour.

We stopped by the Davenport house and they were just getting ready to start a tour! The tour starts with a short video, then your guide takes you around the house. It is very informative and they give you the history of the house and Savannah! The house is beautifully restored. My husband and I enjoyed the tour a lot... More

A very well restored 1820 mansion. If you have toured New England historic houses of this period, it will be very obvious that the architect was from Massachusetts, Still a wonderful house that played a very large role in the movement to save historic Savannah buildings. A very nice tour. Well worth the time.

Beautiful old home with a wonderful history of the building and family - lovingly restored. Great location near Columbia Square which makes it so easy to walk to from most city hotels.

The history of Isaiah Davenport and his family surrounds you as you tour this beautifully restored home. The decorative features in the ceilings and walls are amazing and most of them are original pieces that have been restored. Touring this home, you get a true sense of what it was like to live in Savannah in the early 1800's. The... More
