I am in beautiful Savannah and after passing by the Owens-Thomas house on several city tours I could not wait to visit this home and learn more about English Regency Architecture. I visited the home today and we were directed to the next tour that was leaving in one minute...my day would have been much brighter if I had caught the following tour. In all my years of travelling I have never felt so unwelcome, watched other tour members talked to in such a condescending manner and so wanted to ask my tour guide if I could defect to the tour just ahead of us! A tour guide's job is to explain the history of the home and provide you with INFORMATION about it. It is not their job to briefly overview a room, ask for your "impression" of the room and then when you ask a question and provide your “impression", to let you know in no uncertain terms ...that you are incorrect and then provide the info you needed. So, if you have the pleasure of Janine as your tour guide…here is hoping today’s heat was the reason for her bad behavior. Telfair Museums, please consider hiring individuals who actually enjoy tourists....it would truly enhance the experience, However, the house is lovely!
