Please note the following information and guidelines which have been established to protect the interiors and furnishing of the homes on tour and ensure an enjoyable experience for all tour guests. Do you have a question that we've missed? Email us.
Where does the Tour take place?
The Holiday Tour of Homes, Savannah, GA takes place in private homes
graciously opened to the public by generous Savannah owners.
Why are there two different tours?
Each of the two self-guided tours features a different set of homes.
These vary in size, architectural styles, and periods. They are not museum houses, but private residences.
How do I buy tickets?
Online. Day of between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. at Tour Headquarters
How much does the Tour Cost?
Tickets are $40 per person for each of the Historic Home Tours (afternoon or evening), and $25 each for the Massie Heritage Center Tea or Powerful Punches Toddy Tasting.
Does the Tour sell out?
Yes! The number of Tickets is limited to protect historic interiors and ensure a pleasant experience.
There is on street parking available on the Tour route as well as in Savannah parking garages for a fee. NOTE: You do not have to pay parking meters on Saturdays in Savannah.
Is there transportation?
Because the homes and tour sites are in close proximity to each other, transportation is not provided. Walking allows you to take in Savannah’s historic scenery.
What if I don’t want to walk?
Our Tour Partner, Savannah Pedicab is available across MLK, Jr. Blvd. from Tour Headquarters, as well as along the Tour path. For a small fee, a pedicab will drive you from home to home.
Is the Tour wheelchair accessible?
Most historic homes in Savannah are high-stooped with 8 to 12 steps to climb and, as such, are not accessible by wheelchairs. The Massie Heritage Center is accessible.
What should I wear?
High-heeled shoes are not allowed on the tour, as they may damage the historic wood floors. Wear appropriate walking shoes which are much more comfortable/safer for Savannah’s uneven streets.
Can I bring my kids?
Well-supervised children are welcome but babies, children which are carried
by parents, and strollers are not allowed inside the historic homes.
Can I take pictures or video?
Out of respect for our homeowners and residents, please no photography or videotaping inside the homes.
