Great introduction to the city

I would highly recommend this tour as a foundation for the city. All the tour guides have a different spin--but basically the same spiel.

I have been wanting to tour this cemetery for quite some time. As great as the tour was, it was the whole experience itself that made me write a review. Angela, the tour guide, picks you up from your hotel. She is kind, polite, and seems like she knows EVERYTHING about Savannah, GA. She makes you feel comfortable so you... More

Angela is a born-and-raised Savannah lady who really knows the history and current events of the city. I booked a tour but with it being the slow season, she called to re-schedule and offered to provide the history tour I signed up for after allowing me to attend the book tour of Bonaventure Cemetery. She gives the tour from a... More

The Midnight tour with Angela was a blast. She knew a number of people from book and had a lot of insider information. She has a fun personality, as well. We loved her.

Our tour of Bonaventure Cemetery with Angela was fun and interesting! She certainly knows Savannah history old and new and is so interesting and funny! We learned so much about the people of Savannah and the symbolism of the cemetery from her. She provided door to door service in a mini bus. I highly recommend Savannah Heritage Tours and Angela!

If you want the politically-correct, strictly-history, all-business tour of Savannah, go somewhere else. If you want to feel like your on a comfortable Sunday drive with that eccentric family member that you can't get enough of, this tour is for you! We LOVED Angela! We booked the "Book" tour with her after reading Midnight in the Garden of Good and... More

You will love this tour. Angela's deep knowledge of Savannah, the locations of scenes in both the book and movie (not the same...Hollywood took a fair amount of artistic license with the book), and many of the people involved in the story couldn't be beat. Plus Angela is a Savannah native and gives you a really good idea of the... More

Just returned from visit to Savannah and this tour was top highlight. Angela is so knowledgeable and entertaining, a "not to miss" tour if you enjoyed the book and/or movie!

If you like the book and/or the movie of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, this is the tour to take. I took the Grand Tour that includes the Mercer House tour. Angela is the very knowledgeable guide who takes the trolly to site both in the book and the movie. Next we went to Bonaventure Cemetery which... More
