Thank you for the review. Your guide covered every ounce of Civil War history that could be covered in a 1.5 hour tour! The history was a bonus!
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 were blessed to have Brad as our guide & to have taken this tour on a sunny, 70 degree day. We learned some very interesting things about the history of Savannah. The dedication to the preservation of this stunning city is incredible! I highly recommend booking a tour with…
Fantastic tour! Brad was a great guide who as a native was incredibly knowledgeable! Since it was just myself and my boyfriend on the tour he even threw in some haunted history for me.
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.
