Morning Civil War Tour. - Our tour guide was Zach. From the time we met up with him right until the end of tour. He was very knowledgeable about the topics and had an easy going and relaxed way of telling the history. I would definitely recommend doing this tour.

Informative and fun tour! - Our guide, Zach, was great and was very informative! He even brought his new puppy along, Hazel who was adorable and very friendly. I’ve been to Savannah many times before and learned a lot that I hadn’t previously known! Go check out this tour, well worth the time!

Enjoyed every bit of it! - Zack was great! He definitely knew his stuff! Zack Being born and raised in Savannah he was the perfect tour guide. It was myself and my twin 17 year old boys. Zack keep us all engaged and gave us all the information but not to much. He stayed on topic which to me a guide that jumps around and gives too much information makes me check out. I have traveled the world and done many tours but Zack was by far one of top two guides I have ever had. Got to see some beautiful places also.

Great tour - Great walking tour. Lots of beautiful sites and learned a lot! Our tour guide Zach was funny and engaging. Highly recommend although not sure I’d want to do it in the worst of the summer heat!

Not Quite as Expected - This was partly our fault - I hadn't realized how little Sherman truly affected Savannah in the war. We expected more content on the war, but a great amount of the tour was the history of Savannah. We still learned some things, but the lack of historical recounting of the war left us a little disappointed.

This was truly an... - This was truly an interesting experience.. Brad recommended via text beforehand that we bring an umbrella because of potential thunderstorms. When we showed without Brad stated that we were unprepared and that we would be sorry when it turned into a wet T-shirt contest. There was no humor in his tone.. that was a strange and offensive introduction to the tour. In fact, as we proceeded he actually asked if anyone was offended yet. So odd. The remainder off the tour focused on the history of Savannah, references to the civil war and a lot of Brad’s political opinions. Although, I did agree with him on several points it certainly was not the place to express one’s political beliefs.
