Bertram was our group tour guide on a recent visit to Vicksburg. The tour was part of an excursion from our river cruise boat. The tour was excellent and we were quite impressed with Bertram. He is obviously well versed; his delivery is friendly and in a manner that holds ones attention. He is the great-great-grandson of Jefferson Davis and he shared a lot about Mr. Davis' life with our group. We hope to go back to Vicksburg travelling independently and when we do we will certainly contact Vicksburg Old Town Tours for another tour.

This was the best tour experience my husband and I have ever had. The owner, Bertram Davis, the great great great grandson of Jefferson Davis, was our tour guide. He and his wife Carol provided excellent hospitality. Bertram has extraordinary knowledge of Vicksburg. We highly recommend taking a tour with Vicksburg Old Town Tours.

My wife and I scheduled a private tour with Carol and Bertram, owners of Vicksburg Old Town Tours. All I can say is, hang up the telephone or get off the computer and contact them. Don't consider using anyone else. They were fabulous. Carol invited us into their home from the start, and Bertram took over with a tour of antebellum homes, Christ Church, historic downtown and the Military Park. His knowledge of Vicksburg, the history of the Civil War, and his story telling kept our undivided attention for over four hours. We have been fortunate to be able to schedule many private tours during our travels, but this was hands down the best. Thank you Carol and Bertram.

Driving through historic Vicksburg, we discovered and joined a walking tour offered by Bertram and Carol (along with one tour employee) of their "neighborhood" , historic home, Christ Church, and finalizing with the Duff Green Mansion (now B&B). So much pre-Civil War and Vicksburg Siege History covered. Each stop included additional talks by the rector / owners of those places. SO INFORMATIVE. If you are in Vicksburg, this is a must. As each stop pointed out, this is a NEIGHBORHOOD< not a sud-division and our being there supported an understanding of the history, the diversity that pulls together, and PRESERVATION of this great place. Thanks Bertram, Carol and Company for taking us back....and preserving that which is good about this great country and the people.

I have taken many tours in lots of places so I can learn the history and culture of where I visit. Carol and Bertram showed us and taught us a lot in a few hours! The people they have helping them are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. If you, like we, have just one day in Vicksburg, call Vicksburg Old Town Tours and sign up!!

Bertram gave me a tour of Vicksburg that was beyond all my expectations. His knowledge is incredible and he is so detailed. His wife Carol is also wonderful. Cannot recommend them enough! If you like Civil War history then this ancestor of Jefferson Davis is for you. Loved every minute.

Absolutely perfect tour and history about Vicksburg. Bertram and Carol were very personable and friendly. They literally welcome you into their historical home and then provide a great walking tour of the neighborhood. I would highly recommend taking this tour.

Homeowners decent from Jeff Davis walk through their home with great period prices and Davis memorabilia. This was a look at some normal people of time period Visited church up the street also with ties to Vicksburg before during and after war. Continued around block to visit B&B where Jeff Davis spoke to Vicksburg citizens just after he was released from prison
Each stop was moderate by person living in these locations. Great background info Great antiques in restored period locations

Bertram and Carol of Vicksburg Old Town Tours know the history of Vicksburg and bring it alive in their walking tours and Antebellum Experience Tour. Bertram talks about his great-great grandfather, Jefferson Davis, too.
