Reviewed 16 May 2012

Take one day to be educational about where your staying. Fort Zacharay, Little White House, the eco-discovery center. These are all fun things to do to get out of the sun and get to know a bit about Key West.

“Very Enjoyable”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

The bad thing about visiting there was it made so much want to live in that house. There were some areas that were closed to the public, though not many, but I would like to have seen every square inch. I can just imagine living the life that President Truman so enjoyed in that house. A nice tour.

“Must See”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

The tour guide at the Truman White House was knowledgeable and informative. Amazing that the government has had the insight to retain the 1950s decor and that the house continues to be in use for various dignitaries.

“Fascinating Gem”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

We bought our tickets as part of the Conch Tour Train package.

Not far from Mallory Square and other Old Town attractions, a very relaxing stroll to and from Duval Street. The history of the grounds is amazing. Harry S. has in time become one of our most beloved presidents. So nice to see a more personal view of his life in the context of his official duties. The guided tour was a very delft blend of political, social, and cultural storytelling. The story of Key West and the Little White House building and grounds was well presented.
