TC was great, we first booked the night haunted tour. It was fun learning the urban legands and the true stories of Savannah. He knew so much history that we had to book the day time tour the next day. What a great time. Lots of info, wear good walking shoes as he shows you everything. Highly recommend him. You wont be disappointed.

Misheal!

Your words mean so much and thank you for your review! My goal is to share an experience with my guests that is memorable, entertaining, and personal. Y'all were a blast and thankful you booked both the History and Ghost Tours. It was a treat for me getting to know y'all, especially hearing stories about your children. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Savannah.

My wife and I booked the ghost tour, it was amazing, learning about the city, buildings and the people that lived in them.

This was the slow season so we had the tour all to our selfs. We found that TJ was very engaging, easy to talk to and very knowledgeable of the history of the city and its inhabitants. TJ would give us the real storys and also the urban legends. We were able to take all the pictures we wanted and we took some good ones.

My wife any I enjoyed it so much we book the historic tour for the next morning.

So much more fun than the bus tour! We actually got a real feel for the city. TC was wonderful! Full of great stories and little talked-about historical facts. You can really tell he knows his stuff.
The audio enhancement is a huge plus! No straining to hear over the ambient noise of being out in public, or over the whine of a bus engine. We're scheduled to take the nighttime Ghost Encounter tour later this weekend. Can't wait!

Hi Darcy!

Thank you for your very kind review! It was so much fun hosting y'all, and I agree that the audio enhancement and earbuds help break through the city noises. Savannah's history is rich, deep, and sharing it's story with your group was a pleasure. Thank you for choosing The Best Savannah Tour, and I'm looking forward to hosting y'all on the Ghost Encounter Tour.

Enjoy your day in Savannah!

A friend and I did this tour on 1/16/17; we lucked out and were a group of two. TC did a great job of providing a lot of historical information, not sensationalized trivia. He showed us his and clients' photos on his iPad, and allowed many opportunities to take our own pictures. We couldn't stop raving about it the next day, and I have already recommended this tour to several friends. I'm looking forward to doing it again the next time I'm in Savannah.

TC was great! Savannah is beautiful at night and TC did a great job of telling stories, showing related materials on the IPAD and engaging with our group of 8 (including my 12 year old niece). I will make sure to take his day tour next time. Thanks TC from the group with the little "mouse" from Sunday!
