The guide, Albert, was so knowledgeable about history of Savannah. He is not only an excellent guide but very courteous, patient and wonderful person. I was very happy to take the tour. The tour broaden my experience about the nature and city of Savannah.

Absolutely fascinating and Dennis shared so much detailed history with us. His presentation was full of fun and also very informative. I would highly suggest that anyone taking this tour make sure and ask for Dennis. I am having to use a walker and he was wonderful about accommodating me and the walker!

This was the best activity during our trip to Savannah. Our tour guide, Dennis, was very informative and truly knew all about the areas listed in the description, as well as all the areas along the trip. It was well paced without feeling rushed and allowed us to see other areas that we might not have visited otherwise.
