What people are saying about Georgia

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:)

Our guide, Paschal was AMAZING and we had a great time! He knew so much about the Bonaventure Cemetery and the general area when asked. We could have spent many more hours with him.

A crazy time…couldn’t stop laughing. But learned some new Savannah facts we didn’t know.

Don't hesitate, just book this tour! You won't regret "Savannah for Morons".

Our e-bike tour guide Andrew made the experience fun and memorable!
