Our recent tour began with a press conference--in addition to being a fabulous tour guide, Savannah Dan is involved in litigation with the city to preserve the rights of tour guides to deliver their tour information as they see fit rather than according to a city-approved (and one might assume "politically correct") script. Similar challenges have apparently already been mounted... More

No ghost stories, no levitation, but you can count on getting a great, unvarnished perspective on Savannah's history. Dan captures your interest right from the start of the tour with his southern sytle and his welcoming personality. He has great knowledge of Savannah and his delivery style and humor keep you inerested in every word! A winner of a tour!

My boyfriend and I took several walking tours during a recent driving trip through the south, and Savannah Dan's out-shined them all...!!!! I would highly recommend his entertaining and informational tour of the town.

Having company many times during the year, I try to think of different and interesting things to do during their visit. This was my first tour with Savannah Dan but not my last! He was knowledgeable, pleasant and managed to squeeze a lot of Savannah into a two hour tour. Well done.

Absolutely loved this walking tour. Savannah Dan is so nice and so great at drawing you in and making the history of Savannah so interesting. Felt like I really got to know the history of Savannah. Do not go on any other tours. This is definitely the best one.

Savannah Dan puts on a really good show! He dresses the part of a southern gentleman, speaks in the vernacular and can mimic famous voices, turns history into drama and brings Savannah's past to life. His tour is a combination of street theater and education. He is the best live entertainment in town. If history was taught this way in... More

Savannah Dan walking tours are amazing! Dan knows everything about Savannah and makes it a very exciting 2 hours. He knows every bit of history that has built the town, from the very begging to the present. There is never a dull moment during this tour. If I where ever in Savannah again, I would probably take it again.
