guide was the best ever. 21 years of experience so knew just about everything about the city and made it super fun by quoting historical characters. highly recommended and much better than a horse drawn tour. great value for money. really enjoyed it and having hotel pick up was a great bonus.
This tour was very informative about the different squares in Savannah. It also gave us a chance to see the different neighborhoods with historical homes and churches to the Victorian homes in Savannah. We were also taken to the Riverfront shops so we got a chance to see what this historical landmark has to offer.
If you are a history buff and want to learn "everything Savannah", this is the way to go. Tour Guide / Historian Jefferson was a knowledgeable and entertaining 3 hour show unto himself. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...
The tour itself was great - we saw many interesting and beautiful landmarks, but my husband and I both felt that the tour guide was hard to listen to. He clearly has delivered the same tour many times, and he spoke without emotion, in a monotonous voice. He seemed to be trying to speak like an actor, but it didn't work. I recommend getting new guides! We appreciated the air conditioned bus vs. most of the tours which are in open-air trolleys and would be way too hot on a summer day in Savannah!
A welcome reprieve from the oppressive heat for sure! Our tour guide was so incredibly knowledgeable, moving seamlessly from subject to subject. We loved it and very much recommend it for anyone wanting to learn more about our history, and do it in comfort!
A truly great tour. Our tour guide Jefferson did an outstanding job and we felt like we went back in time and came to know what the people who populated the city went through. The history of the houses, buildings and neighborhoods was explained in a way that gave one a sense of how the city grew over time. This tour should be a must for those who want to better understand Savannah.
