I enjoyed learning some...
Lyndee_C, Jun 2023
I enjoyed learning some of the history of Savannah. The map was interesting. Our tour guide did a great job.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
We’re glad you enjoyed the tour. Thank you for the review.
Terrible experience
Sheryl_R, Apr 2023
Tour started late ...tour guide we were supposed to have was a substitute but supposed to have done this for 15 years. She was hard to hear....rambled on.....there were 12 of us in the half way through we were down to 6...the others walked away....a few minutes later 2 more left....we were supposed to start and finish at the same point ....she finished the tour somewhere far from the starting point...we had to hire a cab to get us back to our hotel because we had no idea how to get back. We have booked several tours through Viator...all went well except for this one. Not very happy with the wasted time and money!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
We are terribly sorry you didn’t enjoy your experience. Your scheduled guide was out sick but you didn’t receive a substitute guide. Your guide has 20 years experience giving tours in Savannah. After speaking with some of the other guests, we were informed that they were not leaving the tour because they were bored or unhappy but because they wanted to get to their Riverboat tour early and wanted to stop for a restroom break. Sometimes, guests get so concerned with what other guests are doing that they fail to enjoy a tour themselves! The tour never ends at the starting location due to redundancy. The tour always ends in Chippewa Square and your guide gave you very easy instructions for a 10 minute walk back to the meeting location. She would have gladly escorted you back to the meeting location herself had you asked!

We were looking forward to this tour and learning more about Savannah. Unfortunately, what we got was a guide that was not knowledgeable about the city. A guide who was confused about her facts and one that gave very vague details.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
If you are new to Savannah and looking forward to this tour, how would you know your guide was not knowledgeable about the city? Our guides have a minimum of 15 years experience giving tours in Savannah and are anything but confused.
Use another company
Robert_B, Apr 2023
Over thirty people on tour, could not hear the guide. The guide constantly got off subject making personal political positions. At least 10 people left the tour before it finished. A complete waste of time and money. Strongly recommend another company.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
You signed up for the history and civil war tour. The most coveted walking tour reservation in Savannah, and on a holiday weekend. The tour you took not only covers the history of Savannah but also the strategies used in the Civil War and the political positions of the south at that time. Can’t you just be tolerant and enjoy the tour? It just isn’t necessary to get offended by everything.
This must be a very small company that doesn’t have back up your guides . I was disappointed but understand that employe
Donna_D, Feb 2023
You company cancelled my reservation Received notification that tour guide was sick and couldn’t mage it
Response from Host, Feb 2023
The guide came in to give your tour but had obvious flu symptoms including a fever so close to your tour time that there wasn’t time to call in a replacement guide before your tour was to start. We didn’t want to send you out with a sick guide: We explained this to you and you indicated that you understood. We offered you an alternate tour time and even offered complimentary tour vouchers which you quickly turned down. The miss spelled words and incomplete sentences in your review suggest to me that you just want to be angry.
Book it!
Alana_W, Jan 2023
Wonderful and informative tour about the history of Savannah! Our guide was so knowledgeable and fun to walk with. Would definitely recommend as the best history tour around Savannah!
Response from Host, Jan 2023

Experienced and well...
Patricia_G, Jan 2023
Experienced and well qualified guide gave an abundance of history and many interesting anecdotes. We missed the cathedral but will catch that next time in Savannah!
Excellent tour!!
Angela_F, Jan 2023
I did the trolley tour once, which is good for learning the layout of the city, but absolutely cannot compare to this walking tour! Bill is a wealth of knowledge and shared so many unique stories and secrets of Savannah with us. As a Savannah native, he knows it all!
A great history tour of Savannah
Brian_M, Jan 2023
An excellent guide who really knew his stuff and was still very personable in sharing it with all of us. He did well with our group that included a number of families with strollers. We walked at a comfortable "stroll pace" and learned a lot about the history and people of Savannah.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you so much for the review! We try hard to make the experience enjoyable for all ages! We certainly hope you’ll have the opportunity to visit Savannah again!!!

Excellent tour of the history of Savannah. This was our first time in Savannah & most definately will be back. Hoping to participate in a ghost tour next time! Our guide was so knowledgeable & friendly!!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Your experience was exactly what we hoped would be! Please look us up when you’re in town again!!!
Savannah at its BEST!
Josephine_O, Jun 2022
Our tour guide, Brad (?) or Bill (?) was a great guide who was very knowledgeable about Savannah and had a great personality. He interjected humorous information with the actual facts about the surrounding area. I especially liked the information about the Owens-Thomas Home and the owner's wishes of what to do with the money and the house left behind after death. I will visit the home on my next trip to Savannah. A great tour that makes you want to hear more about this beautiful town.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you so much for your kind review. Your guide will be thrilled to hear you enjoyed the tour! Please make the Owen-Thomas home a priority on your next trip. You’re going to love it!!
Brad was an amazing tour...
