You could spend weeks taking all the tours offered throughout the city. I decided to be a tourist this trip and took the trolley tour & was so glad I did. So much rich history and interesting facts -you'd have to research so many angles to find it all in a day on your own and the trolley gives you... More

A combination of wonderful architecture and history. The docents do a fantastic job of making you feel the history of the house as you move through the rooms, and learn about the family.

We were staying nearby and had the opportunity to take an evening candlelight tour. Informative guides/actors took us through a family Christmas eve event at the home. Well done.

This is my second time through the Davenport house. First was with several colleagues while in town on business. This trip was with my wife and two teenage daughters. I enjoyed it both times. The reason I wanted to start our family trip with this tour is the video they start with. It is very informative. The video tells about... More

Have an excellent video of the foundation that saved the house from destruction as well as the house itself. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the house and the family. The rooms are nicely decorated.. Original woodwork and floors. No original furniture.

We visited this home hoping to learn more history of Savannah, instead we got 2 teen girls saying Um a lot and asking if we had any questions. Well we may have if they would have actually given us any information about the place. Our tour lasted about 10 minutes and we were very disappointed.

I apologize for your poor experience at the Davenport House. I have no explanation. We employ young people to give our tours. They are trained. However, in your case they let the DH down. Please know that had you made your unhappiness known we would have refunded your admission fees in full. That is our policy. And, please know if... More

Overall, this was a great tour and value. . Interesting tour and and a good glimpse into how families lived in that day. Good Federal architectural style. We visited a few other museums and this was our favorite of the day.
