We covered very little of the city and the information was narrow in scope. Would have liked to hear more about Savannah’s architecture, racial climate, history into 20th century. Group was very large so it was often hard to hear Joe this also slowed down the pace, especially when a large group went for coffee.
Joe was so knowledgeable! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour!
Our guide is a very nice man, but we would have enjoyed a little more humor and interaction.
Very knowledgable guide but which we could have seen more than squares.
joe was fantastic! good sense of the history and was able to read the crowd. thank you!
Joe was a very entertaining guide with I think his own take on history. I enjoyed his stories of childhood in Savannah. We enjoyed the walk through the squares. His food recommendations were spot on and I am grateful for them.
The tour was very good...we enjoyed it very much. My feedback: 1) I wanted more information about the wide range of architecture around us, 2) Some of the stories told were a little confusing...maybe if the stories were shorter and the actual history was told it would be better. 3) I really liked that the guide was on time and pro-active in meeting the tour members.
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”)
