“Best walking tour we've ever taken!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

My husband and I always try to find a walking tour in any city we visit because you can get such a great perspective on foot rather than driving around. We've probably done at least 15 walking tours, and Bobby has been the best guide we've ever encountered. He is entertaining, energetic and knows how to tell a story. We also felt like we got more than our money's worth for our 2-hour tour.

We were lucky to get a 9:00am tour on a Saturday morning so the streets were still quiet when we met in Ellis Square. I highly recommend taking the earliest tour you can get to avoid the heat & the crowds. I also recommend doing this tour as early in your trip as you can so that you get a feel for where you'd like to spend more time. Bobby can provide you with recommendations for where to eat or what to see while you're there. His website also includes this info.

One of the highlights of this tour is the fact that Bobby takes pictures of you along the way and then emails them to you. We received our pictures the evening of our tour, and he even included additional pictures of city landmarks that he thought we might like.

Bobby Davis is the #1 rated tour guide in Savannah for a reason. Don't hesitate to book a tour with him!

“Our Second Great Tour with Bobby Davis!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

We loved our first walking tour with Bobby Davis and were not disappointed with our second one. It was wonderful! This time, we brought along another couple and they, too, were absolutely thrilled. It was a great way to experience Savannah and learn about its history along with a lot of "fun facts". Bobby makes it all so interesting and convenient. He is helpful, friendly and energetic...to say nothing of his contagious sense of humor! Don't miss out! We will definitely be back for a third tour the next time we are in Savannah!

“Left us wanting more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We booked a half day tour with Bobby, for our first afternoon in town. And are we glad we did! Really nice, easy, relaxing time wandering around beautiful Savannah. We saw gardens and learned about homes we probably would have missed had we been walking ourselves. We met Bobby, knowing him as a tour guide, someone we'd corresponded with via email. We left feeling like we were old friends. From the booking right throughout, the whole experience was a smooth one. He takes constant pictures of you whilst walking around, which were then with us later that evening. He even sent some extra ones. Good recommendations for dinner too.

“A fun light hearted tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

We wanted a tour of Savannah that was entertaining and fun and Bobby fit the bill! We certainly enjoyed our time with Bobby. Being a local, he is very knowledgeable about the city. The time flew by and we learned some history and fun facts!

“Personable guide but just not right for us”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

I am fortunate to travel frequently and take many private tours. I find it difficult to write a less than 5 star review but ultimately my goal is to help other travelers find the guide that will work best for them. Obviously based on his #1 rating, Bobby is highly regarded by many who take his tour. They enjoy his lighthearted style of guiding. He conducts his tour with humor and a sense of familiarity; however, we would have preferred a tour that was heavy on the history of Savannah and did not rely on trying to entertain us. While said with humor, conversation was directed more often than we liked on UGA, Savannah ladies, home prices in the historic district and personal stories. Much of the private guide experience relies on the personalities matching up so this review is simply offering a different perspective and hope it helps confirm your decision to tour with Bobby or perhaps research other options that might more closely align with your personality.
