Brad was terrific. He knew his stuff. Favorite visit was to the Pink House.
Only complaint that I have is The Savannah Walks does not get back to you. I made 6 calls and left messages before anyone contacted me while I was there in Savannah. Someone must work these phones more diligently.

We had a very enjoyable walking tour with Brad our tour guide- he was very articulate and knowledgeable about the city of Savannah and its role in the civil war. He must be something of an expert on General Sherman and the connections and influence the General had in Savannah. a wonderful tour!
