We booked this a few days before we visited Savannah. Our tour guide, James was unexpectedly casual and knowledgeable. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed his obvious familiarity with the historic sites, recommendations and banter as we walked.

Our guide was filling in for the original quide who had the flu. He was on time and organized. He was personable with witty remarks and a sence of humor. Our walking tour was very informative about the Squares and area. He was able to answer my questions about anything I asked.

Thank you for the “review”. It doesn’t sound like you ever contacted the ticket seller for a refund. If you did, refunds can take 2-3 weeks depending on the bank. We be glad to contact your ticket seller on your behalf and ensure that your $20.00 is returned to you as soon as possible.

I gave it two stars only because the guide was knowledgeable and it would have been good if a Savannah walking tour is what I paid for. Unfortunately, I made a reservation for the Civil War walking tour and that's not what I got. A couple hours before the tour I received a

We were asked by the city to move the meeting location due to the large groups and Warren Square being a residential square. They were trying to keep the square quiet for the residents. The tour you received was a wonderful blending of the history and Civil War of Savannah. Every single aspect of the was as it applies to Savannah was included on the tour. That is a certainty. I was the guide!

My husband and I did this tour last minute, and we are so glad that we did. We ended up being only 2 of the 4 guests in the group, so we felt it was awesome to be able to do this tour with only a few people. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided so much information.

Hello! Thank you for the review. You were very fortunate to take the tour during the slow part of the month. It gets busy in December once the kids get out of school for Christmas! The reviews about guides not showing up are a bit misleading. We used to have guests try to find the meeting location using GPS. Unfortunately GPS is pretty inaccurate in a city that’s 285 years old. The squares don’t even have addresses. However, we have found a way to ensure all guests find the meeting location.
