Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Savannah. We were traveling with four teenagers and he even kept the teens interested and excited about the stories and history being shared -- great tour!

Amy, Matching your name with my reservations, I believe your guide was Bill. Yes, we agree, he is knowledgeable and interesting. Bill absolutely loves Savannah and sharing all he knows with his guests on tour! Thank you for taking a few minutes to give him a review!

Very knowledgeable about Savannah history. Our guide Rose had a good sense of humor. The heat of the day did nothing to diminish the tour. I would highly recommend.

Gary, Thank you for taking time to give me a review. The heat of the day in July & August can get a bit steamy. We always recommend everyone bring water to stay hydrated! It was a pleasure having you on tour!

Personable. Small group of us four plus one more. My kids (14, 12, 11) and I had a great time walking Bull St with him. Afterwards they told me several of their favorite facts/places - things I didn’t realize they appreciated. 😎 Highly Recommend.

Jeani, The highest compliment we can get is that the kids on tour enjoyed it and remember a few facts. We welcome kids and try to keep them engaged, so they hopefully will have a few takeaways and not think it was a boring history tour. Your guide was Rick, and he enjoyed having the kids on tour, Thank you!

Informative and engaging. We learned about both the history and lore of Savannah. Exactly what we were looking for.

We believe it’s not just about “us” telling you the history of Savannah, but also hearing from you and answering any questions you may have.

Slow paced tour that didn’t cover much ground

Rose was a wonderful, knowledgeable, and kind person, but this tour just wasn’t a good fit for us. My husband and I were hoping for a faster-paced tour that covered more ground through the historic district of Savannah. I think on our tour, we only walked through 3 or 4 squares before we got to Forsyth Park. I think this would be a better fit for visitors who want a slower, more leisurely experience.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
I’m sorry you felt my tour wasn’t a good fit by not covering more ground. We go at a leisure pace best suited for most people. Perhaps a Private Tour would have been a better option for you, this way we would base on tour on your interests and totally customize it to what is best suited for you.

We had a great excursion. The guide was informative. Recommend this tour if you are in Savannah for a short visit.

We often have guests in town long enough to take the tour and then on the road again. It's a great break from driving from north/south.

Nice tour. Very informative. Lots of little history you could not get on a self guided tour. Lots of shady spots to stop and learn about the city

Thank you for taking time to review. Yes, shady spots are important during the summer in Savannah!
