Bonnie will show you how to be more than a tourist by helping you discover there's more to Savannah. Book in advance if you would like to join your fellow travelers on one of Bonnie's public tours. Group sizes are limited so you won't get lost in the crowd. Cover all the basics after breakfast and before lunch on the Slo-vannah Saunter. Or you could wait until the late afternoon for a sophisticated and slightly lubricated experience with drinks in hand on Lightly Sauced- Raise a Glass to History. Wondering why this place has a reputation for being so haunted? Then wait until nightfall for the Ghost Lore Walking Tour! Bonnie also loves private bookings and is available at your convenience. She can customize a tour to your interests across a variety of subjects from a general historical overview, to Black history, women's history, the Civil War, the Revolution, a little bit of architecture, etc. The guide comes to you and you even get to choose how long the tour lasts. Often available on short notice. Go ahead and call! « less

While in town on vacation (with my husband and 3-year old daughter) we did a two-hour tour with Bonnie and were extremely happy with our experience. I'd asked Bonnie to compile a sort of "best of" tour that also included more-or-less untold women's and African American histories of the city. Although Savannah is brimming with history and stories, Bonnie did... More

I've taken a few tours with Bonnie when my family has come to town. There are many reasons this is the best tour you will find in the area. First of all, Bonnie is educated in history. Yes, that's her major. You won't catch her telling the same stale stories you hear when the other tours pass by. Secondly her... More

We booked a walking ghost tour with Bonnie for 8pm. Unfortunately, about half an hour in we got stuck in an epic thunderstorm! This didn't deter Bonnie at all - she just adapted to the situation and modified the tour as needed. We ended up going for coffee and waiting out the weather. She then carried on with the rest...

Left Savannah with lots of history. Bonnie is knowledgeable and presents her history in a fun way. Bonnie grew up in Savannah and knows much about it's history. Rain made no difference. Bonnie brought out her umbrella and kept going. Can not imagine a tour being better. Will utilize her again and again. Would certainly recommend all types of tours.... More

Going into the tour, my family was expecting some cheesy ghost tour with lame "ghost detectors", but instead we were pleasantly surprised by a walking tour around Savannah's old neighborhood. We were graced by cool night air whilst ghost stories were told to us in the vicinity of Savannah's more haunted areas. Some stories will make you uneasy, some will... More

Thanks for taking my ghost tour and I'm glad it wasn't nearly as "cheesy" as you expected. :-) I know being able to enter some of the sites would be way cool, but I would certainly have to pay the owners of those sites for the privilege, which means I would have to pass that cost on to my clients...

Our tour with Bonnie was full of fantastic facts and a colorful history told in a wonderful, personal way! Our time with Bonnie on a rainy Saturday morning was great. Bonnie really knows her Savannah history and shared it with us "Yankees" with pride and a smile. Thanks, Bonnie!

Growing up in Savannah I've been on a number of tours. Bonnie puts them all to shame. Her knowledge of global history is apparent as she relates Savannah's history to what was happening in the rest of the world at the time. Even my history buff father was impressed. Bonnie loves Savannah and shows us just how much, and it's... More

I took a 1.5 hour ghost tour with Bonnie Blue. While the other tours were with huge groups, or in converted hearse's, Bonnie had a group of 4. The tour was personal, and you could hear what she was saying. It was not a lot of hype. The stories were told with feeling, as if Bonnie knew the people in... More

My boyfriend and I recently took a trip to Savannah in May, Bonnie blue was our first stop on the list. We took Bonnie's ghost tour and it was fantastic, she threw in tons of interesting historical facts and showed us around the town, which was perfect for our first night in Savannah, it set the premise for the rest...
