Great introduction to the history of Savannah

Crystal was an excellent tour guide. We have been to Savannah before but learned new and interesting things. Highly recommend!
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Regina, Amazingly, even us being tour guides and owning a tour company, are continuously learning new and interesting things ourselves. Crystal is a wealth of knowledge, and I’m happy you had a great tour with her. We hope you keep us in mind for another tour on your next visit. I’m sure we will have many other things to share with you as well. Our biggest problem is deciding what to talk about and which stories we ourselves enjoy and want to share on tour. We can only talk about so much during a 2-hour tour. This is why we enjoy questions along the way, it helps us customize the tour based on the group. Safe Travels! Thank you for taking a few minutes to give Crystal a review.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Savannah. We were traveling with four teenagers and he even kept the teens interested and excited about the stories and history being shared -- great tour!

Amy, Matching your name with my reservations, I believe your guide was Bill. Yes, we agree, he is knowledgeable and interesting. Bill absolutely loves Savannah and sharing all he knows with his guests on tour! Thank you for taking a few minutes to give him a review!

Very knowledgeable about Savannah history. Our guide Rose had a good sense of humor. The heat of the day did nothing to diminish the tour. I would highly recommend.

Gary, Thank you for taking time to give me a review. The heat of the day in July & August can get a bit steamy. We always recommend everyone bring water to stay hydrated! It was a pleasure having you on tour!

Personable. Small group of us four plus one more. My kids (14, 12, 11) and I had a great time walking Bull St with him. Afterwards they told me several of their favorite facts/places - things I didn’t realize they appreciated. 😎 Highly Recommend.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Jeani, The highest compliment we can get is that the kids on tour enjoyed it and remember a few facts. We welcome kids and try to keep them engaged, so they hopefully will have a few takeaways and not think it was a boring history tour. Your guide was Rick, and he enjoyed having the kids on tour, Thank you!

Informative and engaging. We learned about both the history and lore of Savannah. Exactly what we were looking for.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
We believe it’s not just about “us” telling you the history of Savannah, but also hearing from you and answering any questions you may have.
