The backstory to this fine old house adds greatly to the visit, but the house and garden are well worth viewing even without the history. Having seen the film adds to the experience but the house is worth visiting either way. Old school Savannah and...More

Beautiful home and wonderful if you read "the book". Guide was very very good. I was disappointed we couldn't go upstairs to see the pipe organ but they had pictures. I'd do this tour again.

This house is a must see, especially if you love history and If you've ever seen the movie "Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil".

We were amazed by the home and how accurate it was compaired with the movie. The guide had much information and was so educated about the past and all the antiques and story. Past reviews don't give it much justice. Must see to appriciate it.

There is only a guided tour. Parking can be tight in the city, so I would recommend Uber and/or walking.
