If you have read "Midnight in the Garden of good and evil" you want to visit that place, and I am glad we did. A stunning house with exceptional art and old furniture, but I agree on previous comments that the visit was very brief,...More
Let's get the obvious out of the way - if you want a tour that talks all about the death Danny Hansford as described in the book and film, "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," this is NOT the tour for you.

I can't remember exactly. Less than an hour! Maybe 45 minutes. Depends on how many people ask questions at the end, and if you stick around to hear the guide's answers. You only see the back garden and the 1st floor's 4 rooms. No photos allowed.
