Good tour guide. Tour went a little long.
Joe provided a lot of information in an interesting way. His personal stories from growing up in Savannah added to the tour. The tour was just the right length and was very enjoyable and entertaining.
Fun tour, great info
The only reason I chose this rating is because it felt like a history lesson. I also wanted to learn more about the buildings.
It was very good. Our guide made everything very simple. Interesting places and stories. He also gave us tips for restsursnts and other visits
Before tour started, while waiting for others, he could have given some info about him; why he does this, how he is paid, start and end of tour, if there is any bathroom or not. I enjoy history so I liked hearing how Savannah came to be. He also did a fine job giving some present day info. Our guide was animated and informative..
Very informational and personable guide. Great way to get to understand the history of Savannah. Bravo! !
This was a terrific tour at the beginning of our visit to Savannah, and it was even dog friendly! Our dog enjoyed the tour as well!
Joe did an amazing job sharing facts and local legend and folklore. It was obvious he has a love of Savannah and history. Sign up process and meetup the day of the tour were simple and seamless.
We did this tour a year ago and had a different guide. The route this time was different, and we felt that the guide did not include as much information or cover as many stops as our first time. Still a great way to hear about Savannah and it's history, we love to do these tours each time we visit.
I was a little disappointed that we only walked down the street I had just walked up to get to the tour!
The guide was amazing, very knowledgeable, and had great narratives. The tour felt a little short even though it lasted 1.5 hours.
Our tour guide was a wealth of information and held my attention at each of the locations we stopped at!
Madeline was awesome! She knew so much about the history of the city and architecture. Our family was interested the entire time! A great tour!
Joe was very knowledgable - we loved the tour and learned a lot about Savannah.
Can honestly say the best things in life are free!! What an awesome tour, learned a ton about the city and would definitely tell others about you guys!!!
We really enjoyed the tour, our guide was very charming, engaging and knowledgeable. Thanks!
Our guide was friendly, personable, however presentation wasn't captivating.
In our opinion Ben doesn't have the natural personality to pull off the jokes that he tells, or other attempts at humor so he should reconsider that part of his performance. He is very knowledgeable about the city and very much enjoyed that portion of the tour.
Lots of historical information. Joe was very good (but please quit saying “with that being said”)
While the tour guide was knowledgeable,the information was given in a dry lecture format. It wasn't interesting for my teenagers. Although, my husband and I were pleased with it.
Our tour guide imparted a lot of interesting information, but the tour lacked excitement. I did feel it got better towards the end.
The tour guide was a bit under the weather which I think affected her interaction and enthusiasm. Also- the story that thefountain was ordered from the Sears catalogue could not be true because of the time frame.
Madeline was great! Very knowledgeable about Savannah and the history.
Overview good but too many details. A few anecdotes to lighten it up suggested.
