Had two tour guides, one for downstairs and one for upstairs, both of whom were very knowledgeable and interesting. Nice combination of Savannah history, eclectic antiques and architecture. Good value for the price.

I always been very interested in the civil war- after my civil war tour I was recommended to visit this house who was Sherman headquarters - I must say that it was worth it the visit- from all the homes I visited while visiting Savannah, this was was the most beautiful, perfect preserved. I was very impressed.

I chose this house to tour based on trip advisor recommendations and I was not disappointed. The tour guides (volunteers) were knowledgable and friendly. The house was full of history and beautiful architecture.
