“Outstanding Tour of Historic Savannah”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

Ms. Harriet Meyerhoff took two of us on a tour of Savannah personalized to our interests, and we could not have asked for a better tour. Ms. Meyerhoff has been involved in restoring historic Savannah and seems to know everything and everybody, historically and currently. I'm sure she could give a simple overview tour, but better to take advantage of her vast knowledge of the community and ask her to include aspects of particular interest to you. Savannah is a very old city for the United States and has had a complex history, so there are many aspects of the community that she can tell you about -- in addition to colonial times, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, there's African American, Jewish, Methodist, mercantile and shipping, even Girl Scout history in Savannah, and it's all fascinating when explained by Harriet Meyerhoff. Also, important for a tour guide, Harriet is a good driver. She picked us up at our hotel, and let us off where we chose at the end of the tour. She is a great ambassador for Savannah!

“Gullah Geechee Tours -- Day Clean Journeys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

The brochure says this is the Best African American History Tour in Savannah. I really can't imagine a tour being better. There were only two of us on the tour. Our tour guide was "Jamal." He was awesome! You could really tell that imparting the history of Savannah's African American culture is his passion. Although, as this narrative indicates, this tour involned African American history, it's not just important to the black population. (My friend is caucasian!) This is the history of Savannah!

This tour lasted about 2-2.5 hours and included information on the first black church in Savannah, the underground railroad, the involvement of the Haitians and other countrymen and the economics of the city. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys learning about history. The cost was $25, although you will want to tip your guide, if he is even half the tour guide that "Jamal" was.

Hello "Lvsportsnut028" - it appears you posted your review in error on our TripAdvisor site. It was a wonderful review, but I think you meant to post this for another company. Our company is Personalized Tours of Savannah - we give a great tour too so look us up next time you are in town. :-)

“Personable & knowledgeable guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

We took a tour with Harriet and it was fantastic! She's got such a wealth of knowledge about Savannah -- the historical pieces as well as all the local flavor having grown up there. She's extremely personable, witty, and generous with her time and knowledge. You feel like you're with family! I highly recommend taking one of her tours.
