The tour was very enjoyable, filled with facts about various presidents (but mainly Truman, of course). The guide offered suggestions on additional KW attractions / restaurants. I would definitely do this again on a future trip.

Hubby and I toured the Truman Little White House and found the step back in time to be absolutely charming. We didn't know that much about Truman, so we enjoyed the historical narrative by docent Bruce very much, along with the informational movie played on the tour. Kinda nice to know about the more recent uses by White House residents... More

I would definitely recommend this tour if you like anything historic. The tour guide, Chris, did an excellent job. It was a cool place to see, especially since we live in Independence, MO...Harry Truman's hometown.

We had a great tour of the Little White House by Jeff our guide. I don't know why every President since Truman has not spent time here. What a great place this would be to relax and get some work done.

Been to Key West many times but never went to Harry Trumans Little White House until today. So glad we stopped. We learned so much about the house when Presidents came to Key West, when they stayed and what life was like for the Presidents when in Key West. Take the time to take this tour, very educational

The tour takes about an hour and was very informative and interesting. A number of presidents have stayed in the vaction home and that made it even more interesting. Nice relaxing tours that take you into history and the importance of the lifestyle of the president at this time. I would recommend this tour if you have never done it.

Very knowledgeable guiding in this beautiful building, which Harry S. Truman used as his summer home, and some other Presidents visited also from time to time. Lots of interesting history to be learned and beautiful building to visit.
