You are invited to walk with me as I use Savannah's architectural history as a visual aid to tell the history of Savannah's innovative city plan, icredible mix of architectural styles, and generations of diverse people who have created America's most uniquely beautiful city. I have been personally involved with the restoration of numerous buildings within Savannah's historic districts and can offer a unique perspective among tour guides.

Can we book a private tour on 9/28 starting at 10:00 in place of the normal 08:00 five hour tour. Our plane does not arrive in Savannah until midnight on the 27th and we would like to get a few hours sleep before the walk. I see that there is as 9/30 tour, but it would be best to take the tour on the first day of our tour of Savannah.

What are the differences between the two hour and the five hour tours? Specifically, why one consider one over the other ? I assume that the five hour tour shows the same buildings as the two hour tour. My wife and I will be in Savannah the last week in September. What is a "private" tour?
