We did not start on time and I would have appreciated more civil war info. I feel like it was 50% about Savannah alone.

It was a great tour if you want to get some exercise. You walk a lot but you get to stop & take pics & read what’s on the plaques. Our tour guide very very knowledgeable about the history of Savannah. If it’s a hot day I would take water.

We booked this a few days before we visited Savannah. Our tour guide, James was unexpectedly casual and knowledgeable. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed his obvious familiarity with the historic sites, recommendations and banter as we walked.
