We communicate this through experienced historians, librarians, authors, archivists, genealogists, and narrators who have fulfilled Shannon Scott’s stringent criteria.

Our journey commences in Savannah’s Colonial districts, weaving together not just anecdotes, but unfolding the significant narratives of Georgia’s pioneering settlers from ancient mound creators, to Indians, Europeans, and Africans.

Transported Back in Time - The very reason I chose this walking tour was because of “The Wandering Historians” encompassed in the name of the tour. Ken was an awesome tour guide. He dressed the part of a southern gentleman. He conducted the tour in such a way that it made me feel like I was transported back in time. We learned so much about Savannah from its beginnings; some of the important events and people that make Savannah what it is today (The Squares, the Siege, SCAD, Pulaski, Tomochichi, Oglethorpe, Juliette Gordon Lowe, the Wesley’s). Ken was courteous, considerate, and very intelligent. He knows his stuff. This was one of the best walking tours I have ever been on!!!!

A charming stroll through Historic Savannah - This tour was a perfect way to stroll through historic Savannah - and we credit our wonderfully engaging tour guide Lazarus for making it so. We chose the 9 AM tour and this was a perfect time on a weekday. The fates seemed with us, as the neighborhoods were mostly quiet. Lazarus’s knowledge and affection for the history of the city gave us a very personal and insightful experience. And one of his stops resulted in us making reservations for a delicious dinner later that day. We would recommend this tour and any others led by this tour company! Thank you for making our brief time in Savannah so memorable.
