The 44rd Annual Holiday Tour of Homes
Savannah, GA  |  Saturday, December 8, 2018
Savannah’s Holiday Tour of Homes features exquisite architecture, beautiful furnishings, and gracious hospitality. This intimate tour experience allows guests to look “behind the doors” at some of Savannah's most beautiful private residences, festively decorated Historic Inns and culturally significant Museum homes. 
*Funds from the tour support the Downtown Savannah Association local community grant program.*

TOUR OPTIONS


Tour of Homes I: 10 am - 4 pm (Houses from 10 - 2, Museums from 10-4 and Inns from 12:30-3:30)

Each of these tours features the same eight private homes, three historic Inns, two Museum Houses in Savannah’s Historic Landmark District AND the Massie Heritage Center.  To avoid over crowding and long lines, the Private Houses portion of the Tour has been broken into two separate tours, Tour 1, from 10-2 and Tour 2 from 12-4.  The Inns and Museum houses will be open to both Tours for the same hours.
