Our guide, Brad, is an 11th generation Savannahan (sp?). He not only knew about the history of the area (and pointed out architectural details), but he also included current and relevant information. He also shared some great restaurants in the area that are favorites of locals! We have booked guides all over the world and we truly enjoyed Brad!

Tour guide did a great job.

Our tour was supposed to start at 10 o’clock. 10 oclock came and went and no guide. I contacted the email on our reservation and also called the Tour contact number. We were then told that the guide would meet us at Reynolds Square shortly. THe tour had already begun in a square near us but not in the square where we were told the tour would begin. We did enjoy the tour. Didn’t understand why we were not told that the tour would begin in another place and we missed that first part of the tour but did enjoy the rest.

Great history. Very informative!

After a little bit of confusion regarding the starting point of the tour, the walk was very well organized and presented. The 90 minute tour ran a little long, which I actually enjoyed as it allowed us to learn more about the city of Savannah and it's unique history. Great value for money!
