Very informative and interesting tour! Lots of good information. We learned a lot of new things! Would definitely recommend and take the tour again!
Very informative tour, so much great history in Savannah that I was not aware of. Brad was excellent in his delivery and content of all the historical points and war history. Great personal stories of our historical figures! Easy walking pace and great way to see the city.
Had a wonderful time walking through old Savannah. Brad was a great guide and knew his history well. Was so informative on the civil war and the history. So much more then most of the other tours I experienced during my stay.
