The tour was longer than expected-about 3 hour total. The owner/driver was very knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The van was not that cool, but better than walking the streets. A nice time and a good way to see the sights.

Savannah Heritage Tours' advantage over the other tour companies can also be a little assuming. The tour guide/owner operator is Angela, a home grown, many generation product of Savannah who even shows you where she lives in the historic district. She operates her air conditioned bus and has the highest degree of familiarity with the area and the people. However,... More

My wife liked the novel and movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, so she wanted to take a tour that provides background on the story. The Grand Book Tour conducted by Savannah Heritage Tours includes a tour of the Mercer-Williams House, many of the properties that Jim Williams restored and that are featured in the book, and...

We took the Bonaventure Cemetery Tour, and it was outstanding. Angela was an amazing guide. She really knows the city well, and gave us an endless amount of information. We were able to walk around the cemetery quite a bit and take a number of pictures. At the end of tour, Angela even offered to drop off anywhere you needed,... More

Angela picked us up and my husband and I got a private "book/movie" tour. We later picked up a few more guests and proceeded to the Bonaventure Cemetery. It was amazing to watch Angela maneuver her mini-bus around narrow and one way streets. It was obvious she had done this many times. She showed us and told us about places... More

My husband and I took this tour on a whim and we were not disappointed! Angela was so knowledgeable about the city and even gave advice to where we should dine in the evenings. Angela was also extremely personable and is very passionate about her love for Savannah. If you want a genuine Savannah experience, Savannah Heritage Tour is the... More

We took the Grand Midnight Tour and it was the highlight of our trip. Angela knows her city and she drove that van past every sight in the Historic District, with fascinating information about all of them, as well as a never ending store of juicy gossip about the "Midnight" characters. Talk about back story! The trip to Bonaventure Cemetery... More
