Wonderful, charming and enthusiastic guides brought our tour of Green-Meldrim house to life. It provided a great introduction to the history of the house and Savannah in general. And the house itself is beautiful. This was definitely a highlight of our visit to Savannah

This house was very historic and well preserved since it is now a Parish house for the church next door. The docents are very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting as well.

We enjoyed the personal attention we got on the tour of this house. It was very interesting and I recommend visiting it. The cost was $10 cash per person, and it was well worth it.

Our tour lasted about 45-60". I guess it depends on the numbers of questions the docents get during the tour. The size of the group would have a bearing on that too, as it takes longer to maneuver the group through the house.
