We were so happy we took this tour. Not expensive but the wealth of information and history that is provided on this tour to me makes it FAR MORE interesting than the Hemingway tour. The amount of history that took place and was conducted by Harry Truman and even JFK and future Presidents is simply amazing. And being a lover of history, this was totally new information and very enjoyable. Everything has been kept as it was during the time of Harry Truman. If you are in Key West and you dont make time for this tour then you will have DEFINITELY missed out on some history. Well worth the time to check it out...

One of the better historical tours I've been on here in Key West. There weren't any puns that have been used eighteen gazillion times. The tour guide was very informative and was able to answer any question the group came up with. If you're at all interested in presidential history, thus tour is definitely worth it.

It looks just like it did in 1949. Docents are very knowledgeable about the southern white house. The house even has some original furniture, art and other artifacts.The small gift shop has some interesting books about President Truman. Don't miss it if you travel to Key West.

Every year Carmen Rodriguez and Bobby Nesbitt do a series of shows at the Little White House. A great venue to listen to music...you get your own private concert with a select few. If you happen to be in Key West, and there's a concert or event at the Little White House-be sure to attend and book early.

Very interesting tour. The guide was wonderful. Didn't know this existed. Wonderful find. Very interesting piece of history.

Quite neat. There are guided tours available if interested. If not, there are 2 small rooms open that you can walk through as well as a gift shop. Impressive outside, educational inside. Plus...well within walking distance of the cruise pier (maybe 4 blocks at most).

One of the great historic Key West locations. It served first as housing for the naval commander here, but became Harry S Truman's winter retreat. Docents who lead tours are marvelously well informed, and house and its history are fascinating. You can even see the bar where the president held court with a glass of whiskey and a good hand of poker. The bar in that room can be closed off. Mrs. Truman, Bess, never liked to see spirits on display.

Very interesting tour. The reason I gave this four stars is because the group I was with was too large and it made it difficult to look around the rooms while the tour guide was speaking and l pointing out items in each room. Also, the room and furniture that is used for the short video could use some upgrades. I am not a big fan of Historic Tours of America which operates this tour, but our tour guide was well informed about the history of the home and it's former occupants.

It was a very interesting museum and the guide was most informative. The neighborhood is worth visiting just to walk through. Learning about all that took place here and the stories as well as the number of more recent Presidents who used the house made the visit worth the time spent.

This was a very fantastic place to visit. Of course, I am a history-minded individual so I enjoyed the walking tour through this glimpse back into the 1940s. The furniture inside the residence is authentic and was actually in use when President Truman visited and stayed in the house. To see items that were actually used by Truman was very amazing and the tour guide, whose name escapes me, was very knowledgeable and passionate about the content he provided to the group. The only reason I gave 4/5 stars instead of 5/5 is because you are not allowed to take any photographs inside the house. Not even non-flash photography is allowed. I found this to be very disheartening and therefore the fifth star was lost. But otherwise a trip to the Truman Little White House is well worth it.

Over the past years I have made a point of visiting this site yearly as I did my graduate work in history. I had a great surprise when I visited this site for the first time. Mr. Jimmy Mira who conducted the tour possessed a unique skill in his ability to weave history with a easy narrative style that was compelling. I was saddened to find Mr. Mira is deceased for his tours were outstanding. If you are with your children try to make a effort to bring them along as they will see a unique cultural aspect of Key West. The Truman Little White House is compelling for it was the location for many decisions by the President that still affect our lives to this day.

Very awesome place to tour. Some major parts of modern US history happened here. Truman had working vacations here throughout his presidency, and JFK handled part of the Cuban Missle Crisis from this house. The tour was very well given and there were some great displays open to the public. The house is pretty much in the same condition with mostly original furnishing that it had back when Truman stayed there.

If you love history this is a must stop. They offer a tours and tour packages for other attractions around the area. Tour guides are awesome here, I had Chris and she did a fantastic job of encompassing the history of Harry S. Truman. I left the tour with a clearer understanding of the history of Little Whitehouse and Harry S. Truman!

(Whenever I have taken a tour anywhere in the world, I am mindful of the extreme effort the guides have made to please and inform their group so as not to tire them. This is a difficult task and I always make a effort to tender a token of appreciation by a sum that expresses my gratitude for the tour.)

A very nice place to visit in Key West. Besides the history the landscaping and houses take you back to that time in a very scenic landscape. There is a lot of history here and buildings besides the Truman Little White House. And if you are not into history it's still a great quite place to relax and enjoy the scenic landscape and houses. I felt like I walked on to a movie set in the late 1940s, just missing the cars of that time. It's a at the gem at the tip of Key West.
