Charlotte was our guide and was full of information about Savannah. What my wife and I liked best was that we sampled places that we would never have found on our own. The tour of the city, packed with the history supplied by Charlotte, was a great way to get to know Savannah and experience the feel of the city.

The very knowledgeable tour guide was very engagingsharing history and trivia about Savannah as we walked to the various restaurants. All of the food was good and the restaurants were chosen to give participants a sampling of a variety of Savannah's food. Since my husband and I were only in Savannah for one day, we would have never sampled so many restaurants if we had not gone on this tour. We were grateful to hear about so much of Savannah's rich history. It was a great way to spend an afternoon.
