Interesting & Informative! So many fun facts!
Samantha_H, Sep 2023
We had a great tour given by Keith Blake! He was so knowledgeable about all things Savannah and Civil War. We loved learning about the Cotton Exchange and seeing the large container ship pass through. The coolest thing Keith showed us was the hand-drawn map on the wall in Vic’s On The River. Such a great story behind it, and Keith is a wonderful storyteller!
Really enjoyed this tour! Highly recommend!

the guide clearly loved his subject matter and the tour was very informative about the Civil War and Savannah's role
The best!
Mike_M, Sep 2023
The guide, Kelse, was fantastic! It was obvious that he was a history buff and no someone following a script. My dad and I really appreciated his insights, storytelling, and personality. Could recommend a tour/guide more.
Savannah Past and Present

The Savannah Civil War History Walking Tour was a great tour that gave insight into the part Savannah played in the Civil War. Our guide, Pierce M. did a tremendous job of bringing the history of Savannah and the War to life. He was extremely knowledgeable on the subject, but not overly technical. He encouraged and answered all questions with complete understanding of subject and shared pieces of history from the many years he and his ancestors had lived in Savannah. This tour is for those wanting a glimpse into the history of Savannah and what made it into the city it is today.

Fun and insightful
Laura_W, Aug 2023
Keith was great! Knew his stuff, knew the local people and businesses, and fun to walk and talk with! If we come back to this great city, we’d do this again with friends & family who were not with us this time. And we’d make sure to get Keith as a guide!
The tour was fun, a learning experience, and engaging.
Phillip_Y, Aug 2023
Our tour guide Keith Blake was extremely knowledgeable, engaging, friendly and exuberant. He made the tour fun. Also, he was very caring for our well being. If we were hot, making sure we were comfortable and well hydrated.
Great Experience!
sarah_a, Aug 2023
We were very pleased with our tour! Keith is great and extremely knowledgeable. He took his time and answered all our questions. Because we had a very small group, he was even able to show us a few things that you wouldn’t normally see on other tours. Our favorite was the charcoal drawing hidden behind plaster! We would definitely recommend this tour for anyone wanting a little extra! Thank you, Keith!

Keith was super knowledgeable and engaging. He welcomed and answered all of our questions and the pace was perfect. Would be great to include information on slavery and black history during the Civil War as well.
Great Walking Tour!

We were lucky enough to have Mike as our tour guide, he was friendly and very, very knowledgeable! We were lucky enough to be the only two people on our tour, he encouraged us to do questions and was great to talk with!

Samuel_G, May 2023
The tour guide was very nice and had a lot of information to share. The destinations were very interesting and made us feel like we were in that t ime period. Especially River Street and the shipping interests.
A great overview!
Jacqueline_S, May 2023
Informational without being too much information! The headsets worked really well so that we didn’t constantly feel that we had to be near the guide to hear him. Great experience
Great Tour for all Civil War Knowledge Levels
Hannah_G, May 2023
Our tour ended up being a one on one with Keith, which was fantastic! We walked through several squares, discussed details that led up to the Civil War events in Savannah, and even got to see a cool history charcoal drawing done by Union Officers. Keith was engaging and clearly knew his material, even going so far as to make several book recommendations. 100% recommended!
Enjoyable tour. Good...
