What people are saying about Savannah

such a great time! the time was not specified however. on my virtual ticket it said 5 pm but the info on the website said meet at 7:45. i had some one contact me asking me to join the 8 pm group since there was not enough for the 5 pm group. before that, i really didn’t know what time i was supposed to meet the rest of the group. maybe that’s something that can be improved. other than that, great time. my friend and i thoroughly enjoyed.

This is such an excellent tour! Our guide was so knowledgeable about history, and his passion for the history of Savannah was evident. We learned so much about the workings of the harbor, as well as historic facts that were new to us. We highly recommend this tour! Only advice: get your tickets printed up early and board as soon as you are permitted.

Locations were interesting and worth the visit. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Easy pick up and drop off from Historical District for the tour.
