“Best Walking Tour in Savannah”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Our Guide was Phillip the owner of Old City Walks... We took the 2 hour 10 am Antebellum tour which ended up being more like a 90 minute walking tour, he was even able to keep our teen girls engaged with his stories of the city... By far one of the Best tours I have been on....This is a must when Visiting Savannah.......

“The best part of our Savannah visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Having taken walking tours all over the country, I can honestly say, this one was exceptional. I learned more about this city than I could ever have imagined. It was obvious that our guide, Phil, truly loves his city and takes personal pride in showing it to his guests... One of the plusses was the cap on the number of guests....we only had 6 other people with us, which added an incredible dimension to the experience.....we felt like we were getting a personal tour....I have to say, Phil has an amazing way of presenting an encyclopedia of knowledge about Cotton, in an entertaining and credible way. We had planned to make this a one-time visit to savannah, but, thanks in part to Phil....we'll be back..

“Great tour”

We took the (2 hour) antebellum tour with Phil (the owner). His knowledge and love of the city was obvious. He was full of good stories that kept us engaged. Would highly recommend.

“A pleasant afternoon in a beautiful city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Owner, Phil, our guide on an afternoon Architecture Walk, obviously loves Savannah, and know it quite well. We had the pleasure of a "private tour" with Phil, being that we were the only guests that lovely afternoon. Phil took us through the historic district while smoothly detailing the history of the area and the architecture, design, and a bit of the culture of various houses we saw.

Old City Walks has several tours, and I highly recommend these tours. It was 2 1/2 hours very well spent.

“Wonderful walking tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

We booked a tour of antebellum architecture with Old City Tours on the advice of our innkeeper and it was the best walking tour that I have ever experienced. It was a beautiful afternoon and we were the only 2 on the tour, so we had plenty of time and wide ranging conversation. Phil is a delightful guide and we so appreciated his knowledge, sense of humor and story telling style. It was history truly brought to life. I would highly recommend this tour. You see and appreciate so much more on foot and Savannah is a beautiful city for walking.
