5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Ted is a warm and knowledgeable tour guide. We highly recommend him!

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2015

We were disappointed that we only visited 4 taverns, not the 8 mentioned and not the main ones. there were 17 people on our tour which was too large to be waited on easily and difficult in the small taverns. Our fellow travellers were delightful and that saved the evening for us. Tour guide was just adequate.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2014

The two of us were the only ones in the group, so the fun part of a bunch of people adding their stuff to the stories was missing. The guide did his best and we had a good time after all.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2015

A very disorganized, disjointed tour that was made worse, by miscommunication and a very inebriated obnoxious group of 9 women on a bachelorette party (before the pub crawl/tour even began). I was left very unhappy with this tour at the end of the night, which was my birthday.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2014

We have been to other, similar tours in Savannah (Creepy Crawl, and a kid friendly one as well). Our tour guide wasn't very engaging or knowledgeable. He seemed to be already buzzed when he picked us up. Every member of our party had more personality and by the end my husband was making up ghost stories about the pubs we visited to entertain us. He asked us not to submit a negative review... we alleviated our guilt by tipping high. But - spend the extra $7 and take the Creepy Crawl. It was much better.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this May 2015

Tour leader never showed up. We called the number on the voucher and left a message, but nobody ever got back to us. Don't book it.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2015

The guide was unenthused and seemed more interested in his own drinking than in telling us stories to complement the taverns that we visited. Very boring tour! The best part of the tour was when we ended it prematurely and made our way back to our hotel.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2014

Our confirmation did not include the meeting place for our tour. When I called the local contact number I got a message that the mailbox had not been setup. After several attempts, the tour operator did call me and we arranged our rendezvous point. When we arrived, our tour guide was waiting for us and we set out. He gave us some historical anecdotes but wasn't the great storyteller we had hoped for. By the half way point he was pretty tipsy and the stories were peppered with colorful language. We were glad when the two hours were over and we set out on our own. Great concept for a Savannah tour but I would suggest a different tour operator.

Well, Cliff, was our tour guide and we started out at Zunzi's 2. Never have had a guide who wanted to smoke while doing a tour! We only went to 3 other bars and as the tour was leaving the 3rd pub to go to the last stop, Cliff said he hated to rush us but he had a another tour coming up at 10PM! Needless to say, my group of 7 decided to leave the last stop and go our own way! I have lived in the Savannah area for 14 years and have done numerous ghost tours and pub crawls and this had to be the worst one I have ever done!
