Bonaventure Cemetry tour was great. Tour guide was 7th generation local and gave us a taste of the key city changes through the moving of cemeteries and remains. I have never done a Cemetry tour and it was well worth it to understand symbolism in head stones and key savannah figures. Very glad I did it.

We were advised to ride the route first then do the hop on/off part. Enjoyed our bus driver/guide. How informative. Then, we hopped off on River Street to walk in the shops. A great introduction to the city.

We were on the open bus which was fine as it was not sweltering. Very informative and educational. Very entertaining with the little side stops. A good way to get acquainted with the city and what you want to take more time to see. We combined this with the Riverboat Cruise in the afternoon which I would also recommend.

It was a good tour. The bus was about 10 min late picking us up, but it was great to be in air conditioned bus. We saw a lot of the historic district and the majestic Bonaventure cemetery. Our guide was very knowledgable about the city. Unfortunately, she also shared her negative opinions about a number of areas of local... More

This tour is all you need. Everything was in walking distance of our hotel on Jones St. and we couldn't have been happier. You really don't need the on/off tour buses at all. Our tour guide grew up in the area and was very knowledgeable. We preferred the intimacy of the small AIR CONDITIONED van and interaction with our guide.... More

We were so happy we booked the Savannah Heritage Tour rather than the open trolley tours. We had a nice air conditioned van, and that was a real plus with 90+ temperatures. Angela is a fantastic tour guide - informative, interesting and lots of fun. We felt like we were being shown around the city by a good friend, rather... More

Found out about this tour company online and glad we selected this one. 1) it is in an air conditioned van, which makes a huge difference because Savannah is way too hot. She also will pick you up at your hotel. They have on and off trolleys in this city, but I don't know how people stay on those buses,... More

Angela was wonderful! She picked us up at our hotel and graciously offered to drop us off where we liked after the tour. She often asked if people wanted to take photos and made sure we did not feel rushed. This did not feel scripted like so many tours; we enjoyed her spontaneity and energy. She knows a lot about...

Angela was awesome as a tour guide! She really knows her stuff about Savannah. The tour was only supposed to be two hours but she spent over three hours with us showing us things that other tours just skimmed over. She made sure we saw everything we wanted to see. She has such a great sense of humor and went... More
