One of the biggest benefit of this attraction was that they provided a shuttle to pick up from your hotel and to return. (Parking is an issue in Savannah and can be pricey with the constant parking meters). I especially enjoyed the convenience of the frequent leave times and options for either getting off the bus or staying on. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the area and taught us fascinating historical information. We felt that the price was fair.

All tour guides do the same spiel so easy to hop on/off and pick up where you left off. Some if the guides were kind of hard to hear. Good info and a good way to get an overall feel for the city. Would recommend to newcomers. Lots of bus stops and lots of busses. Didn't have to wait long to be picked up

This tour should be a must do for anyone visiting.This was probably the best thing we did during our recent trip to Savannah. Danny and Dannie we absolutely freaking HYSTERICAL my stomach hurt so bad from laughing so hard. This was well worth every penny we paid and I would definitely do this again!!

This was a FUN tour. The twins kept us entertained and even managed to give us a little bit of history. They kept us laughing throughout the tour. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun time.

Teresa was the best! She had so many interesting stories and made every minute enjoyable! We had so much fun with our group. Really was a great tour!
