    Savannah’s Beauty
    Danette_P, Jul 2023
    Saragon was an excellent tour guide! We learned so much about Savannah’s history while gaining knowledge on the flowers and trees that inhabit the beautiful city.
    Well Worth the Trip even if you know nothing about plants.
    Robert_G, Jul 2023
    I am not into plants, I know nothing about them, but we thought this might be different and somewhat interesting. This experience was GREAT. Our guide, Charon(sp) was energetic, down to earth, explained everything on a level that I understood and very much kept my attention. She is a wealth of information and conveys it very well. The walking pace was perfect which we have found to be an issue with other tours- either too fast or slow. She also included an education into the iron works throughout the city. Well worth going on for anyone. Oh, and we know the real story about Spanish Moss !!

    Rachael_B, May 2023
    Sargon was an excellent guide! Fun spirit and you can tell they love to share! Definitely recommend this unique tour.
    Better than I expected!
    Shannan_H, Apr 2023
    What an amazing tour! So much better than I expected it to be! Sargon knew so much information! Very awesome! 2 full hours of walking so pack hydration and wear good shoes for sure. Maybe a hat or visor too.
    Fantastic tour covering both botany and history!
    Matthew_N, Apr 2023
    Our guide Sargon was very personable and knowledgeable. She was very good at putting the plants we viewed in a historical context. We highly recommend!
    Our guide was excellent....
    Patricia_D, Apr 2023
    Our guide was excellent. She knew her topic thoroughly and communicated her knowledge effectively and enthusiastically.
    What's that plant?
    Jolene_D, Apr 2023
    Our tour guide, Miss Sargon, was the best! She was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would absolutely recommend this tour. It's very hands on and you can touch the plants as you get the name, history of origin and what that plant was used for either for culinary purposes or medicinal. Well worth it!
    Great urban botanical tour
    Patrick_M, Feb 2023
    All the plants, and details therein. Guide knowledgeable, answered questions, provided historical context.
    Great experience!
    David_W, Nov 2022
    What an amazing tour! My wife and I were having a tough start to our day. Got a late start, brunch at a certain location was awful, tired (sixth day of vacation) and snappy with each other. Needless to say, we weren't in the best frame of mind at the start of the tour. Sargon was awesome! Upbeat, honest, cheerful and most of all informative/knowledgeable. My wife and I take a lot of tours on vacations, we don't like figuring out what to do and like the education of where we are at the time. BEST tour ever due to Sargon. I have no idea how she keeps all that information in her head and is so easy to be around. Changed our whole day!
    Guide was so knowledgeable and interesting!
    Karen_S, Oct 2022
    My mother and I really enjoyed our botanical tour experience even in October! The guide was so knowledgeable and friendly.
    Knowledgeable Guide
    Sandra_W, Sep 2022

    Randy_L, Aug 2022
    Sargon was an amazing guide who knew every plant in Savannah. I enjoyed the tour and learned many new things.
    Excellent, entertaining and with lots of quirky buts of information
    Peter_N, May 2022
    Stories about plants and their uses and folklore, the history of the cemeteries and their trees. The urban history of Savannah
    Highly recommend
    Lisa_P, Apr 2022
    One of the best tours I have ever been on. Sargon was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Loved it. Learned a lot!
    Beautiful Gardens of Savannah
    KarinStadler, Mar 2022
    Sargon was a wonderful guide!!! They were even able to keep my 12 year old son interested for most of the tour, lol. We learned so much about the local plants, and the history of Savannah. We would definitely take one of their tours again!
    Our tour guide was super...
    Mary_T, Feb 2022
    Our tour guide was super nice and so knowledgeable of Savannah history and especially the trees, flowers and plants native to the city. It was a very pleasant experience. Do need to be able to walk for two hours which was not an issue for us.
    Botanics and more.
    Angeles_M, Dec 2021
    Our guide was really knowledgeable and told us not only about plants but also about Savannah history and the beautiful houses along the way. We really enjoyed the tour.
    A delightful and unique experience
    Brigitte, Nov 2021
    We loved the “Rising Voices” tour so much, that we signed up for this botanical tour with our same guide, Sargon. They took us through the same squares and locations we had been through on other less-worthy tours, but taught us all about the different plants and architecture along the way. Once again, Sargon impressed us with extensive, detailed knowledge of the plants, trees, and flowers throughout the city, as well as the historical relevance of the architectural trends that you imagine when you think of Savannah. This tour left us feeling like we had a totally unique experience. If we could give this tour 6/5 stars, we would!
    Response from Host, Nov 2021
    Thank you so much for the fantastic review! It means a lot to me that you chose to come on a second tour, and I really loved taking you two around downtown both times! Thank you again for all the photos. If you're ever back in Savannah and want to go on tour again, feel free to contact me at and I'll put together a custom route and different set of specific topics to cover for you. I hope you have a safe trip back home, and thanks again!
    Memorable Experience

    Excellent tour! Interesting and fun guide, gave all the details we wanted on history, plants, etc. and showed us her favorite views, gates and more. A great way to learn Savannah!
    Response from Host, Jun 2021
