“"Like a step back in time"”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Our guide Bill was excellent at his job, and has a passion for the history and preservation of this Key West local TREASURE... History is one of my favorite topics and he made me feel as though President Truman would come through the door any moment to welcome us to the Keys... LOVED the House and the grounds...care is shown in every detail, and Bill had some fabulous stories to share. I would recommend this tour to anyone...the home reflects the period of the Fifties in every detail...loved that tricky poker table...too cute...all from a much more innocent time in America's History...the furnishings,the curtains...I loved the bedrooms and how the President would make his own bed and nap on the daybed...a GREAT tour & great people...

“A Must-See in Key West”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Jimmy, our tour guide, was the best! His love and passion for the history of the Little White House and President Truman were infectious. I can't say enough wonderful things about this experience. The House was beautifully preserved. From the moment I set foot inside, Jimmy's description and story-telling abilities made the entire house spring to life! It was easy to imagine President Truman sitting at his poker table playing a game of poker with the guys or reading his newspaper on the porch. Wonderful two hours spent in Key West! Definitely recommend, especially for history lovers of all ages.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and witty! He had great interaction with the group and kept us engaged the entire tour! All of the other staff we encountered was very friendly and were happy to provide us with other Key West information. Make it a point to visit the Little White House when in Key West!
