Enjoyed the hidden...
Ann_G, Feb 2023
Enjoyed the hidden history. Kerry was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The 10:30 start time made it possible to get to Savannah and find parking.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
The Hidden History tour is a lot of fun and Kerry is passionate about history and a wonderful guide. Thank you joining us and thank you for the review!
Best tour this local has found!
Amy_V, Nov 2022
Kerry was a phenomenal guide! A self-proclaimed history nerd, he has done the work of researching original letters written by founding members of the Savannah community. This tour provides history you won’t find on other tours. Kerry takes pride in offering interesting facts from Savannah’s early days, not just popular folklore frequently passed down to sell more tour tickets. His enthusiasm, kindness & humor permeate the entire experience. He was also excellent with communication leading up to the tour, and offers to help with directions to your next destination afterwards. Most certainly one of the best ways to spend a couple of hours in Savannah!
Response from Host, Nov 2022

My husband and I both loved this tour. Kerry did a fantastic job telling us many little known historical facts about Savannah. This tour was my favorite of all the things that we did in our 4 days in Savannah.

Best tour guide ever!
Malcolm_A, Feb 2022
Kerry was very entertaining, informative and appears to love what he does. He was great at telling the gossipy history and interesting back story to Savannah. I took the morning tour and my only regret was that he was not available for an afternoon walking tour!
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Total agreement! Kerry is simply amazing and our Hidden History tour gives an entertaining view of Savannah history and the people who made it. Thank you for the review.
Jackie was great! Totally manageable walking tour with great info.
Johanna_D, Feb 2019
We booked a Thursday morning tour with Jackie. She has a great way of story telling adding in anecdotes and history to make it all digestible. My 3 kids got a lot of good facts and understanding. What a great way to learn history - right where it all happened.
Response from Host, Aug 2020
So happy you had fun, we loved having you with us! Savannah is so fun and so beautiful, we are the luckiest people to share this unique treasure with people from all over the world!
