Delving deeper, using first hand accounts from source materials, sharing details of Georgia's history - the people, their motivations, interactions and methods.

Highlights: • 90 minute exploration with an expert local guide • Uncover centuries of Savannah's fascinating past • Stroll through gorgeous squares, arched with moss-draped oak trees • Marvel at antebellum architecture and fabulous mansions • Small groups ensure a personalized experience

Loved hearing the rest of the story!
Loved the walking tour and hearing the history that you won't find taught in a typical history class! Kerry, our self proclaimed nerd guide, was very knowledgeable and engaging. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has visited Savannah before and wants to hear "the rest of the story".

Kerry is a fantastic guide and we truly strive to tell all the history. Not just the hilights but the low points as well. It makes history a lot more enjoyable. Thank you so much for the kind words!

Amazing Value with a unique presentation
This is a great way to spend a couple hours seeing Savannah and learning a perspective on it’s history that is not the text book account you may be used to hearing. Kerry was highly knowledgeable, interesting, and entertaining. He is definitely earning his money. I have lived here for forty years and have walked right by many of the thing’s he seemed to immerse my interest in. Highly recommended.

Jul 2021
Our Mad Cat History Tour was led by Kerry. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. After the tour you're left with a good understanding of Savannah and Georgia history, along with certain elements to consider such as the role of Native Americans, women, the enslaved, and General Pulaski. Really well worth the time and money !

Great walking tour

Our tour guide was Dust and she was amazing. She was super flexible when we were a bit late and so personable. She shared some really interesting history that I don;t think we could have learned otherwise. Super fun and a perfect amount of walking!

Jun 2021 • Friends
I really enjoyed learning interesting facts that I wouldn't hear from other tours. Kerry was very passionate about the facts he was telling us. We could tell he really loves history! Our tour only had 7 people which was nice; In big group sometimes it is hard to hear.
