Savannah's Urban Forest: the Gates and Gardens Tour

3. Savannah's Urban Forest: the Gates and Gardens Tour

Savannah's legacy as a garden city is firmly rooted in her humble beginnings as a novel agrarian experiment. Today, massive oaks shade stately squares and handcrafted iron gates grace elegant courtyards. This unique walking tour shows you what lies behind the gates of some of Savannah's finest homes. It lets you explore the fauna of this lush forest city. John Berendt, author of the bestseller “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” described walking through Savannah this way: "With twenty-two luscious green squares it is like strolling through the rooms of an elegant open air mansion.” Walking Magazine has rated Savannah "one of the 10 Best Walking Cities in America." The tree-lined streets, beautiful squares, magnificent parks and slow Southern pace make it an ideal location for the leisurely yet intimate feel that only a walking tour can provide.

Savannah: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Walk

4. Savannah: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Walk

Who would have thought that a story about characters in a sleepy Southern enclave would have created the stir that John Berendt did with his non-fiction novel "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"? Even the rumors whispered beneath dripping Spanish moss are enough to make a man blush, and it's all true! Just another day in this eccentric city? Savannah Walks is proud to present A Walk through Midnight, a saunter through the pages of Berendt's runaway 1994 bestseller, which Clint Eastwood made into a film in 1997. Guides offer personal insights and observations, as well as recently unearthed stories about the characters in what the people of Savannah have come to call "the book." Some of the guides were even extras in the movie! The guides also have special items of interest to show you along the way. Who knows? On some days you might even see some of the actual characters strolling about the city! No other "book tour" gets you as close as this!

Savannah: Haunted Pubs and Taverns Walking Tour

5. Savannah: Haunted Pubs and Taverns Walking Tour

A seasoned guide escorts you around the pubs and taverns of Old Savannah, where you will be able to purchase drinks to go at discounted rates. Alcoholic beverages of 16 ounces or less are allowed – and even encouraged – on this tour. With so much history, Savannah is bound to have a few skeletons in her closet, and maybe just a bit more! Your guide will tell stories of how each establishment has earned its place in history. Shocking soirees. Scandalous affairs. Don't let the Southern charm fool you. You might have been on pub crawls elsewhere, but in Savannah it's a relaxed stroll, at least to start.

This was not a practiced or rehearsed script that someone was reading that had no clue about Savannah. Neil is a lifetime local with family roots here that go back several generations so he “gets” the real Savannah. Its a very relaxed way to spend a couple chilled hours sharing some laughs and trying some fun specialty drinks that you wouldn’t even know existed!!

Neil was an exceptional guide. He has great “true” stories that keep you engaged. The pubs were unique and probably would have gone unnoticed without Neil. We had a fantastic time and recommended it to the other B&B guests.

A fun pub crawl with interesting stories about savannah and whitty banter along the way. We enjoyed the smaller group because it encouraged more conversation.

We booked this tour to give us a bit of history and ghost stories combined, it was a great combination with the added benefit of the pubs.

It was a great way to orient ourselves and get a comprehensive overview of Savannah. We could then go back and delve into specifics.
