The driver showed up 1 1/2 hours late and had a poor attitude when explaining to us what happened. He basically said in a nut shell that it didn't matter to him if we got on the bus or got a refund because he doesn't get anything from the tour if we go or not. That was a very poor... More

This is actually laughable you didn't take the tour and failed to comply with the requirements from your ticket broker. The people who actually took the tour loved the tour and are coming back. I will now address your false statements. You booked through a ticket broker - you were required to contact us 24 hours prior to the tour.... More

We had the opportunity (late registration) to join this tour while we were visiting Savannah...there were many options available but this one caught our attention. From the moment we arrived to join Dr. Jamal, we felt a genuine connection.

I echo the sentiments of everyone who previously reviewed this tour. Dr. Jamal Toure was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a very thorough tour of Savannah, sharing the African-American and Gullah/Geechee history and culture along the way. He painted a picture of Black Savannah for us and I felt like I was in a... More
