“Worth it”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We were hesitant about going, not sure if we wanted to spend our money on it, but we were glad we decided to after all. Very interesting.

“Well worth a visit: tour guide informative & entertaining”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

The house has great atmosphere & the guide was informative with a dry humour which was very entertaining.

As a cat person I loved to see them roaming freely around the house & grounds, which only added to the character of the place.

I thought it was worth the entrance fee especially you're a fan. Well run operation, well maintained, easy to find.

“Beautiful and Informative”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

A wonderful house and very good tour. Love the grounds, too! Learned a lot about Hemmingway that I didn't know before. I would recommend a visit to this place if you go to Key West.

“It's Hemingway: Had to go again”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

I visited the Hemingway House many years ago and looked forward to bringing my friend to see it. Our guide could not have been less interested in giving this tour. Unfortunately, we must have arrived at the wrong time since the tour guide and his guests that followed was of a completely different ilk. We did stand and listen to him for a few minutes and realized what a difference a guide can make as far as experiencing this home.

Thank you for your review. I have emailed you directly to ask which tour guide you referred to. We do want to make sure each guests receives a quality tour and if we know which tour guide you had we will certainly make an effort to correct this situation. Thank you.
