Our tour guide was from Florida where we are from and that was just instant camaraderie! Savanna was an excellent guide and gave us a lot of interesting information as we walked about the city. We had a lot of information thrown at us; thank goodness there wasn't a test! Would definitely recommend this tour!
Loved it!
Steve_P, Sep 2023
Loved hearing about the history of Savannah. Mike was very knowledgeable. Much better than the ghost tours!
Tracey_L, Sep 2023
Our guide was a nice guy, but we signed up for a history tour and got a mediocre architecture tour with very little history. We found ourselves listening to other groups’ tour guides who were actually talking about history while ours just walked by many significant historical markers.

Good Food and History with a Nice Pace
Steve_K, Sep 2023
Some very good food coupled with a well-paced and informative walking tour of downtown Savannah. Lots of history about the building architecture, family mansions, and history of the city from Civil War times to the present. All six dishes were delicious and both Bloody Mary and Mojito hit the spot!
So so
Jodi_F, Sep 2023
I knew a lot of the information from researching before I came to Savannah and I don’t need to hear about the guides business connections repeatedly.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Hi Jodi, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry your experience wasn't up to par. Please give the office a call so that I can issue you a refund.
Great Tour and Guide

This was a very good tour. Keith was a great guide. The tour lasted nearly 2 hours and at no time did we feel rushed. Keith was knowledgeable and gave us in depth accounts of Savannah’s history. He was attentive to our needs, answered all our questions and watched out for our safety. One thing we particularly appreciated were the earpieces. Keith was miked so we could easily hear him over traffic and construction noise. It was a nice touch. Highly recommend this tour.
Savannah was great!
Adrienne_B, Sep 2023
Savannah was the best guide! Very professional, great historian, personable. I learned so much about the city of Savannah. Best tour I have taken in the South to date!
Great overview of Savannah
Kara_B, Sep 2023
Our guide was very knowledgeable, and we learned a lot of information and history about Savannah. It was a great personable way to tour the city in a manageable way.
Outstanding value, fantastic guide... much better than the riding tours.

Cemeteries are not sacred ground! Our tour guide (Pierce) was extremely knowledgeable about both the history of Savannah as well as the myths. Pierce spent 5 minutes or more at at each stop imparting knowledge and answering questions. At the end of the tour he provided additional locations of interest as well as the opportunity to contact him with any future questions. Well worth the $26.50.
Pierce was our tour guide . He was very knowledgeable and explained everything in great detail .

The whole tour was memorable. Details from the civil war. It was almost a private tour since it was only my husband, my self and another person in the tour .
Savannah Walking tour

The church and the graveyard we found very interesting. It was a good tour but could have been a bit more interesting instead of so many detailed dates. Maybe a few stories about people or events would have lightened it up a little.
First tour in Savannah
Jennifer_C, Sep 2023
I liked the way Oglethorpe was explained through the whole tour. How his life experiences transferred to the influences of Savannah.
Great tour
Jimmie_D, Sep 2023

Very informative tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable. He even took the time to get us extra water in the excessive heat of the day. Highly recommend!!
Just Not Very Interesting...
Gary_I, Aug 2023
We hate to write a bad review as we rarely do it. But we have no contact info to contact the company directly. Keith was a nice enough guy but unfortunately he seemed more interested in talking about himself and his company and how impressive they were, and how impressive a number of the stopping points were because "we advertise with them" than he was in telling us interesting facts about Savannah. He did give a few bits of info but I have to say that Savannah seemed like a rather uninteresting town by the end of the tour. He also was extremely repetitive, so much so that it made it seem like he didn't have very much else to say which also contributed to our conclusion that Savannah must be not very interesting. However, we walked around after the tour and learned a lot by just reading plaques at the different squares that we had visited on the tour and also by searching "The Olde Pink House" (another place we visited) and reading on Wikipedia than we did from Keith. This made us wonder why he wouldn't at least tell some of the stories on the plaques and some on the internet. It was an odd and disappointing experience. I don't know if all the guides from this company are similar or not but having come off a REALLY interesting and involving walking tour in Charleston the day before (also booked on Viator) made it pretty clear that it comes down to which guide you get and how passionate and knowledgeable they are about their city. Unfortunately between Charleston and Savannah, we have now experienced the two extremes.

Thank you for the novel. Keith gives out our business # every tour and you could call and get a refund. Guess what you can still get a refund, all tours are refundable. As far as the review , please see the review titled " See Savannah The right Way ". they were on your tour. Last thing , did you ask questions on your tour?
Great tour of Savannah's historic district with engaging guide
Julie_B, Aug 2023
Really enjoyed this walking tour. Keith was a terrific guide who is passionate about all things Savannah. He paced the tour really well along with alot of information about the history of the city. Great mix of some indoor spots as well so we could cool off a little! The historic area of Savannah is just beautiful with really interesting history. Looking forward to our next visit.
Terrific walking tour with local guide
Sarah_T, Aug 2023
This tour was time well spent in Savannah! Our guide was so knowledgeable and excited about the history of Savannah which made the tour so fun. We had great conversations about loal food, culture, architecture, and history. We did this at the beginning of our trip which was helpful in understanding the lay of the land. Our guide clearly has good relationships with local purveyors as we were able to step into shops and restaurants which made it more personal. Highly recommend this as part of your trip to Savannah!
Great Tour!
Amy_R, Aug 2023
Wonderful walking tour of Savannah! So much history and our excellent tour guide, Mike, was happy to accommodate the tour according to requests. Even through the heat of summer, it was a great experience!
Must do!
Sonja_B, Aug 2023
Mr. Blake did an excellent job describing the history and showing us landmarks we never would have known about. It was a great time.
Great history tour
Tammi_G, Jul 2023
This was a fantastic tour! Our tour guide was Piers M and he was great. Very knowledgeable about the city and answered all of our questions. He was patient when a member of our party had to use the bathroom. He was very interesting to listen to and we highly recommend this tour. We had 3 adults and a 10 and 12 year old in our party.
