Our guide, Ray, did an excellent job telling us the history of Savannah in an interesting way. Loved every minute of the walk and all the stories he told us. Definitely fell in love with Savannah that day. I highly recommend this walking tour with headphones so you can hear every word. And I would recommend you book the tour early in your trip because you get to know the area so well.
