My mother and I were lucky enough to be the only two people in our tour group. Although I'm sure Orlando would have acted the same with more people present, he was extremely interactive with the two of us. Orlando gave us the option of where we'd like to focus our tour, but we didn't have a preference so he... More

I traveled to Savannah last month for a friend's bachelorette party and one of the bride's must dos for the weekend was a ghost tour. We heard about the Savannah Hauntings Ghost Tour by 2 locals and ended up changing our dinner res so we could fit it in. The tour started at 9pm and our group happened to be... More

We booked this tour as we thought it would be great way to see Savannah as we only had a limited time in the city and it was one of the best things we did! Our tour guide was fabulous! It really makes a difference when you hear about a city from a local. I think this is a terrific... More

I am a big fan of ghost tours, but this one was terrible. It was advertised as a 90 minute tour, but our guide decided 2+ hours was a much better idea. He was wrong. My family left after we had crossed over the two hour mark because when a tour starts at 9pm, you really should stick to the... More

Long and boring. We were floaded with informations in a very boring way. The tour was not lively at all and we couldn't wait for it to end.

My girlfriend and I booked a private tour with Robert when we arrived in Savannah last march. We were eager to see as much of the city as we could, and get as much a sense of the local flavor as possible. We met with Robert in the heart of the historic district, and for the next 2 hours showed... More

There was only four of us on this tour - it was perfect. We learned a lot about savannah history. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. This was our first morning in Savannah, so we also got great ideas about where we would want to come back to visit. We suggest that you book your walking tour early... More

We had a private party of 7 for a tour with Robert. He was at the meeting location promptly as promised. Robert accommodated our requests and provided us an informative and fun tour. He is a local and knows the city. We loved the stories of the history of the city and some of the more recent goings-on. At the... More

We just returned from a vacation in Savannah and joined the late night walking tour Sunday evening. Our tour guide was quite versed on the history of Savannah, and was very enjoyable. I recommend this walking tour to anyone visiting Savannah. You will learn about things i haven't seen in any books.
