The Best Tour

“S” was a terrific docent. Not only was she full of knowledge that helped us appreciate so many forgotten people who contributed to Savannahs history but she was pleasant as well. Her Rising Voices Tour rates the highest with us.

Contextually rich, applicable to today and amazing.

The tour is informational, dynamic, applicable to the present, it should be required of all visiting Savannah. In cannot relay how fantastic the tour’s content is. If you get Sargon as you are guide it would be amazing; the way information is provided and applied to the contexts of the past and present leaves you with a thirst of knowledge. I strongly recommend to anyone who wishes to have a greater understanding of otherness.

Rounding Out Savannah

Think you know Savannah? Think again! This tour opened our eyes and made us aware of history that we had literally walked right past in prior days. This will round out your knowledge base of Savannah. Highly recommended!

Sargon is an absolutely wonderful guide! Her knowledge is vast! She had so many tidbits of information that other tours visiting the same places did not know!

Not to miss! Stay for the history, have myths busted, learn why Sav is unique!

Sargon was the best tour guide we had ever had in Savannah...and I have done a *lot* of walking tours! They brought so much of Savannah's complex and rich past to life with insights, drawing connections across centuries, and highlighted the stories of the personalities that put Savannah on the map and made it such a vibrant and unique place in the Southeast. If you ever wanted something more meaningful experience than the retiree-friendly, gloss-over-the-Confederate-parts trolley tours, you will not regret having Sargon take you on a walk through history, particularly Black history and history of LGBT+ communities in Savannah. It will make Savannah that much more of a richer, colorful place to explore more and understand our American history a little bit better. Bravo to Sargon for their ability to keep us--a couple--and a busy family with young and old--both entertained simultaneously for over 90 minutes. This is the best tour we took for our entire long weekend in Savannah. Don't miss out!

Loved hearing these stories that are not told often or enough. I love history and have taken many other tours in Savannah (city tours, house tours, boat tours, museum tours) and this was my favorite. Excellent tour!

Incredible Sargon!

Sargon was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I was completely sucked into their ability to share so much history with engaging storytelling. They were able to bring to life the many people who are responsible for making savannah what it is today. I highly recommend this tour and will be looking for any others that they do for the next time I return.

Sargon knows Savannah!

Sargon was the ultimate tour guide. She was knowledgeable, answered all questions, was considerate and really enjoying her job! We learned a lot about the history of Savannah in much better detail than a bus tour we took a couple of years ago. Sargon walked at our pace and found benches for us (older folks). We could not have been happier!

Our guide was spectacular! She was a seasoned guide who knew so many facts about the squares and sights. I even noticed other people who weren’t in the tour group craning their heads to listen in to her informative speeches. She was also easy to hear despite there being several loud motorists nearby. The subject material of this tour is unlike any of the other tours. Thank you for a great experience and sharing the history of underrepresented, untold heroes!

The tour was fascinating and a highlight of my trip to Savannah. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for different historical contributions than those that are always read about in history books.

Best Walking Tour in Town

Our tour guide Sargon was so knowledgeable and an absolute delight to walk through the city with. While we knew this was a tour meant to highlight underrepresented voices of Savannah, and we definitely learned about historical figures that don’t often get a plaque, their tour really went into a lot of depth and detail so it covered almost all of Savannah’s history. My husband and I learned more on this tour than on any other more generalized tour we took on our trip. Sargon is an excellent story-teller and time really flew by. Cannot recommend it more highly. If you only go on one walking tour, this should be it!

This was a fabulous tour. You explore the history of Savannah that is underrepresented. Understanding the often hidden history of Savannah helped make our trip more meaningful. Sargon was informative, charismatic, kind, and knowledgeable. I could not recommend this tour enough!

Sargon is such a knowledgeable, passionate, and dedicated guide who shared the stories of extraordinary, complicated, and underrepresented people who were influential in Savannah’s history and ultimately helped shape the city’s present. Her enthusiasm for her adopted hometown inspires those of us visiting Savannah to dig deeper into its stories and return to learn more. Highly recommend!!!
