  • Right in the midst of the University district is this stunning, late 19th century Queen Anne mansion. The woodwork is absolutely spectacular, the tin ceilings beautiful, and the furnishings original. ...  more »
  • My wife and I enjoyed our visit here greatly. We had a great tour with Kevin. He was fantastically prepared and knowledgeable. Got to see EVERYTHING! Well worth the $10 price!  more »

  • We toured as a group with their special Victorian Secrets tour -what fun! It was a small group, interactive & informative. We got to see all of the house plus the attic. After we had wine & munchies - lovely & much more than we expected. Rated R but so much fun to learn about! A must see.
  • I am a Phoenix history buff, so I LOVE historic tours. The tours start at 10am, the ticket office open at 9:50am. Expect to take 45 minutes or so to get the full tour. Check Groupon for discounted tickets. Our tour docent Stan was VERY knowledgeable and shared a wealth of information with us. He even shared bits and pieces that even my dad (a born and raised Phoenician) didn't know. I don't want to give away too much of the tour. But if you're interested in learning more about our great city, and take a trip back in time, schedule the tour!
