“Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

My daughter is a Girl Scout so we wanted to make sure she got to see this house. I just went as a supportive Dad. I learned a lot. Juliette Gordon Low is a great American. Her skills and tenacity is a great inspiration to kids. In addition, the house is a great look in to architecture and furnishings of the late 1800s.

“Don't pass it by”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Great tour but especially interesting because of the lovingly preserved home, furnishings and accessories. What an interesting woman she was and a great glimpse into the past Don't have to have been a Girl Scout to enjoy this one

“Learn about the times, the lady, and the high class in the South”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

The history of Juliette and the Girl Scouts is only a portion of the home tour. The furnishings, the elegance, and the way of life in Southern High Society are chronicled by excellent guides who love their city, their history, and their jobs, and it shows. It was a real time travel to see 200+ years into the past. The guided tour was also laid out excellently as tour after tour managed to not interfere with each other. Lots of standing. If you can't take the standing...buy and bring a portable stool so you can visit all the homes you can. It's a trip for seniors, like us, but some children were along and were reasonably fascinated.

“Docents make all the difference”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

My sisters and mother would probably be envious of me as I was able to tour this house. Although the female docent was originally from England she was a most gracious tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable regarding Miss Low, the history of the house, as well as the artifacts in the house. I highly recommend this as one of your house tours if you are visiting Savannah.

“Great tour, very informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Visited the Juliette Gordon Low birthplace last week on a short trip to Savannah. My sister and I only had time to see one historic home in Savannah. We’ve seen so many old houses in different cities and most of them time while they’re usually very lovely it’s pretty much the same old thing – an old house with old furnishings in it. But we decided to tour Low’s birthplace because it would be a house lived in by someone that you knew something about. The tour was about 45 minutes and covered the main floor and the upstairs four bedrooms. Our tour guide was a young woman who was very sweet and enthusiastic. She did a great job and was very informative and knowledgeable. Juliette Gordon Low was a remarkable woman and a very talented artist. Many of her art works are on display throughout the house. Amazingly almost everything in the house – the furniture and decorative items, paintings, art work, etc. – were owned by the family. The interior of the house is very well preserved despite having been converted during WWII into four apartments for soldiers. Luckily the Girl Scouts bought it and restored it into this wonderful museum. The house is definitely worth a tour and very reasonable at $9.
