We booked the combo tour. First was the Historic Tour of the city. Our guide Nic was very good!!! Then we went to Boone Hall Plantation. As a fan of "Torches in the Storm" absolutely overwhelming. This oak avenue is breathtakingly beautiful!!!! There is a house tour... very interesting! There was a lot to see about slave farming... a lot of information was given in the huts... We had enough time to look around the huge area. There is still a tractor ride over the entire area, it is still being cultivated and it was very interesting to see what else is being grown. Overall, highly recommended.... it always worked out great with Gray Line.

Alan, our guide for the city tour was very knowledgeable and showed us the important sights of Charleston. He drove the bus safely and was very courteous to other road users. Vicky took us to Boone Hall and again we were given lots of information on the drive there. She also gave us tips on how to the get the most out of our time at the plantation.

We had a great time. The information was presented in a reverent manner. Very hard to see how the slaves were treated but a must see for visitors to Savannah.

Very interesting, worth the time. Greyline driver Bicki was knowledgeable and kept us entertained on the transportation end. Well done Vicki!

It was wonderful! Perfectly organized and so informative. Our driver Watson was terrific!
