Great tour of the house and grounds. Very informative. Sums up the early days of Savannah. Involves stairs.

Our tour was very interesting, the history and period furnishings were notable, but the architecture and mechanical workings of the house were truly fascinating. Worth the time and money

This is yet another stop on the old town trolly tour worth going to, this is one of the oldest homes in the city, and it was the first to have indoor plumbing on 3 of its floors! Our tour guide was full of information,...More

The house is beautifully restored. Our guide was excellent. She explained the history of the house and the furnishings. You get to see a lot of rooms. You can purchase a ticket that also showed entry to the Telfair Museum and The Jedson.

Lovely home seen by tour about every 20 minutes. Very hospitable, informative and one gets a peak at the period housing of the day. Reasonably priced as well.

This was an interesting part of our Savannah vacation. The tour displayed what life was like for a rich southern family and their slaves. Not a large place and nothing like the southern plantations but still a worthwhile visit.

The tour of the Owens-Thomas House amazed and educated us. The house is considered to be one of the best examples of English Regency architecture in America. Designed by a young English architect, William Jay, the house had several noteworthy features: running water 20 years...More

Great tour of a historic home that truly gives you a picture into what antebellum life was like. Unlike some of the homes you can tour, this home is furnished with period pieces and you get a true feeling for how they lived.

That's the only way you can tour the house is with the tour guide and is part of the admission price. It seem the tours run about every 15-20 min.

How can you buy 1 house tour? It says you have to buy tickets at their website, but buying one house not an option. We are a family of 5, --$100 is a bit steep for us.Thanks in advance!

I see that you can only buy a ticket that includes all 3 places. I am only in Savannah for the weekend. How long does it take to do all 3? My flight on sunday leaves at 5:51. If I dedicated my Sunday to this, starting when they open at 12, would I be able to make my flight without rushing? (It says our hotel is 22 minutes from the airport)
