“Informative and historical.”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Great little site in a very gorgeous area! The house surrounding this place are amazing as well. The site is well maintained and is still in use by the presidential families. The tour is worth the price for the historical lesson and the artifacts.

“The Little White House”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

What a joy to have been able to take this tour. We had a wonderful, enthusiatic tour guide by the name of Tom, who you could clearly see he loved the place and all it stood for. I am an older Army Brat and to learn new history, I didn't know about, thrills me. I love the history.

“Great tour guide”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

We stopped here while in Key West and really enjoyed the tour given by our guide George. George was very knowledgeable and even though I had already read the biography on Harry Truman by David McCullough, he still had trivia and pieces of history I had never heard of before.

“Look into Old Key West”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Even if you don't know anything about this president the tour gives you an very real feeling about life in KW during that time period. Furniture and artifacts are easily viewed and the tour is well narrated. We had to wait a little before the tour but we spent most of our time in the gift shop.

“Historical Treasure”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

We stumbled upon the Little White House after a long, hot day in Key West. What a treasure! Our guide, George, was a wonderful story teller. The tour showed us a very human side of Harry Truman.
