This was a great tour and at my own pace. I stopped and enjoyed the scene. I recommend it to anyone.
so lovely
terri_g, Sep 2023
historic city is wonderful, wish we had time for a second tour, but we had places to be. we stopped in the morning on our way to our new home
Convenient, educational and interesting!
Carolyn_A, Aug 2023
This was an easy, convenient tour, and we learned a lot about an easily walkable, small section of Savannah. We particularly liked hearing the history about each of the green spaces (squares), and the history associated with each monument.
Driving route
Hayle_A, Jul 2023
Because rain was unpredictable, we chose this tour and drove the route. Having lived here years ago, we knew some of the history, but learned a bit more on this tour. We also know there is much more history than the straight route of this tour and wish there were more options for tours like this.
It was a lovely idea but I had great difficulty in getting the program to start and end as I did.
Beth_H, Jul 2023
The sites were lovely--the beautiful of the city and the architecture is amazing. But I was unable to pull up the program as I moved through the written list of sites.
Give it a try
Bruce_H, Jun 2023
Once you get used to the app, this audio tour works pretty well. You can go at your own pace and pause it at any time. This particular tour was somewhat limited. But I loved the concept. I would definitely try something like this again.
Match your speed to the tour and you’ll be ok
Deborah_M, May 2023
The facts shared were very interesting however the timing of the delivery is very tough. Some people walk slower, some faster, it felt like we were waiting for the host to speak for way too long. After 15 minutes we turned it off. I still have this a 3 rating as it could just be our speed was misaligned.
WarrenKeith_M, May 2023
It was a great experience. Very informative and easy to use. The guide was excellent. I would highly recommend.
Excellent Ghost Tour Experience
Kimberly_S, Apr 2023
Our guide, Tyler, was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and overall, an excellent tour guide. I would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a nice walking Ghost Tour.
Pleasant Savannah tour
Mary_W, Apr 2023
It so great to do these audio tours to get some more insight into the history of wherever you are. This particular tour was very well narrated and easy to follow. First time for us to use a GPS location tour and it was great!
David_W, Mar 2023
Great tour! Very informative! Could go our own pace and was pleasantly surprised at the amount of info shared.
Great GPS and narrative .
MARCI_H, Feb 2023
The gps part was perfect, always pinpointed our location, and the narrator was lovely. Very interesting.
Wonderful self guided tour!
Katherine_H, Jan 2023
Wonderful and informative experience. The technology worked great and the narration was at the appropriate times based on our locations. Loved that I could do this tour on my own time and didn’t have to follow a pre scheduled time.
I chose this tour because...
Lorin_S, Jan 2023
I chose this tour because was only in Savannah one day and had time constraints so liked that you could do this tour at your own convenience. It takes you through the center squares of the historic district highlighting many attractions and historical background. The narrator’s voice was clear & pleasant, the tour kept the whole family’s interest. Would definitely recommend.
Enjoyed the entire walk...
Frank_L, Sep 2022
Enjoyed the entire walk and the narrator’s style. Plenty of time to absorb and hear the details she shared.
Enjoyable tour
Rhoda_K, Aug 2022
I really enjoyed the historical information I learned and the pace was just perfect for me! The squares and houses that I learned about was information I did not know and great to learn. It left me wanting to do another tour
Easy breezy tour
catharine_B, Mar 2022
This was really well presented. The app is easy to download- the woman guiding you seems lovely and personable for being just a voice. It’s nice that the gps picks up where you are but the pause button can be used when you get distracted and explore something else. This tour is a VERY BRIEF overview of Savannah. In :45 you breeze up the center and learn a tiny portion of the history. However! This can be a great starting point and we found ourselves able to navigate easily after the tour and finding places we wanted to explore more on our own. We were very pleased and had more than one person walk by and say to their partner ‘oh look! We could have a tour on our phone’
Great Value/ Self paced/Tour Savannah
Cindy_B, Jan 2022
Less than 5 star rating based on in ability for recording to pause between monuments/squares on 1 persons audio.
Nice walk on Bull Street
Tim_G, Jan 2022
Wonderful walk up Bull street - app worked well - I recommend this - nice narration and historical content
Must be tech savvy
Christine_L, Jun 2021
I was unable to do the set up. I’m not tech savvy enough. But I appreciate that someone reached out to me and refunded my fee. Too bad we couldn’t hear it because the people we met in the street who were able to do the set up were enjoying themselves.
