This tour was recommended by a friend and she was so right! The tour only takes about 1 1/2 hr, which is great if you're coming off a cruise ship with limited time. I had no idea President Truman enjoyed this house and Key West so much and treated it as his refuge to relax, but still handle his Presidential duties. I loved the fact that he had a "no suits" policy while staying there. There is a steep staircase that must be climbed both ways, so be aware. The tour takes you through the cute house with it's original furnishings in tact, and stories of what other past Presidential families have stayed on it's premises.The entry fee is very reasonable and part goes to the up keep. It's a short walk from the pier, too. I would highly recommend this tour.

The Little White House is a very cool piece of our history and I was really excited to learn even more about Truman from our tour guide, but please fix the leak in the living room! I also wish that we'd been allowed more time in each room.
