Savoring Savannah on Wheels - Our guide, Austin, was fabulous. He was so knowledgeable. We learned things about Savannah we never knew. It was great being able to keep the bikes after the tour as well. We biked around town for a couple more hours, and then hit a few of Austin’s restaurant recommendations. We would definitely recommend!
