Fun tour with lots of information about Savannah.

Interesting tour- exploring many parts of Savannah historic area. Guide was very entertaining. Actors jumped onto the tour bus and provided different perspectives of what we saw. $3 off coupon is available in the free Savannah map available at the visitor center.
