“Interesting Historical Attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed going through Truman's Little White House. We were very surprised at the decor. It was not at all lavish as we had expected. We took a walking tour and our guide was very informative. We would recommend this educational attraction.

“Terrific Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

An excellent worthwhile tour by our guide "Renee". He was well prepared, articulate and provided a wonderful tour. He gave insight to a popular president who reporters of the era dubbed"Harry the Human". If you enjoy history this is a terrific tour.

“Fascinating piece of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

A guided tour well worth taking - our guide, Jimmy, a native Key Wester had actually met several of the Presidents during their stay at the Little White House, made the tour come alive with anecdotes and historical facts. While not big, very well presented and kept. Highly recommended.

“History with the personal touch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Jimmy, a Conch, led a terrific, informative, and amusing tour. HST was a good president on hard times and used Key West as a productive working office. Plus it is a blast to the fashion past! Add it to your history list.
