We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Dennis was a fantastic guide, one of favorites. He was knowledgeable, entertaining and clearly loves Savannah and these two historic sites. We also enjoyed that he took us to local treasures for lunch and famous cookies. We highly recommend this tour and thank Dennis for a wonderful time!

This was the best activity during our trip to Savannah. Our tour guide, Dennis, was very informative and truly knew all about the areas listed in the description, as well as all the areas along the trip. It was well paced without feeling rushed and allowed us to see other areas that we might not have visited otherwise.

Dennis was a fantastic tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about the history of Savannah and the surrounding area. He was funny, patient and kind. He accomodated the special needs I had with my walker and ability to get around at all the stops. I highly recommend him for any tour he might do!

This was a really fun and pleasant way to tour a good bit of the historical neighborhoods and squares of Savannah. Our guide, Steve, was terrific and enthusiastically gave us lots of history and local lore as he led us around Savannah. We highly recommend this tour!

They (especially our tour guide Jason) was not only informative he was kind and he helped my 73 year old sister to not be afraid. He did not go too fast or too slow and we felt comfortable and safe. (what a singing voice:)
