What people are saying about Savannah

Ours was a small group, which made it really cool. Tour guide, Martin was very entertaining and knowledgeable. He said he’s been giving the tour for 8 years! You could tell. He was very thorough and could answer every question we had. The only thing that would make this tour better was if the tour could include going inside the houses/sites.

Brad was a great storyteller, giving historical facts to us on a super windy, below freezing day!! Tour lasted a solid 2 hrs.

Enjoyed the narration, ride was comfortable & period stops with actors renditions were a real plus.
