Our tour with Bill was fantastic even though it was during those heavy rains and thunderstorms on Sunday. He was a great guide and kept us interested despite being soaked head to toe.

We do not cancel due to rain, except for heavy thunderstorms. In the event of heavier rains we do give guests the option to reschedule. In your case, the rain began mid-tour and you opted to muster through! It's all about our guests. Here in Savannah a rain forecast, all depends on which cloud you are under. Don't let our rains keep you away. Despite the rain - Bill enjoyed his tour with you!

Walking tour hit the sweet spot

We had a small group of three which allowed for a lot of dialogue with our guide Crystal. She was very informative and had lots of insights. Her demeanor was easy going and accommodating. Never felt time pressured or that she was going through the motions. The tour hit the sweet spot … not too much detail, but enough to provide insights to those of us who were new to Savannah. The 2 hour walk was just right.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
We agree, smaller groups make it easier to engage in 2-way conversations along the way. We love hearing from our guests throughout the tour, it allows us to adjust the tour and what we talk about, allowing for a more personable experience for you. As for details - the only time we go into deep details is if someone on the tours ask questions about a specific topic, but otherwise, keeping it light and easy, allows you to have a better experience and not bogged down with information overload. Thank you for touring with Crystal, we hope to see you again soon!

Crystal was sooo amazing! I truly enjoyed the walking tour. She was so knowledgeable and friendly, you can tell she loves what she does. I came by myself and she made me feel right at home and answered all of our questions and some! I enjoyed walking through the squares and leisurely strolling and taking the scenery and the history in. I can't wait to return.

Rose Moss was just a terrific guide. She was knowledgeable, entertaining and open to all questions . Rose was so helpful with suggestions about Savannah and its many sites, even great suggestions about driving and parking.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Savannah can be very confusing to try and drive, it is definitely a walking city. I try to always explain how the city it laid out, to hopefully give all guests an understanding on how to navigate the historic district during your visit. Thank you for taking time to give me a wonderful review!

Our guide Rose was extremely knowledgeable in everything Savannah- the history, its architecture, current and original inhabitants, including some local legends. The tour was thoroughly enjoyable and educational. I would recommend that anyone booking this tour request Rose as their guide
