I have taken other Savannah tours and this one stands out head and shoulders above the rest. TC was a wonderful guide both personable and knowledgeable. The tour was the perfect length and covered a lot of historic Savannah. Audio earbuds are provided so you don't miss a single word. I can highly recommend this tour - you won't be disappointed! I am already planning to book the Ghost Tour on my next visit to Savannah.

Good Afternoon Maureen!

I am beyond flattered and thankful for your review! To be called "shoulders above the rest" is the best compliment my family can receive and happy you enjoyed the tour. I had a great time hosting you and sharing Savannah's rich stories. Sincerely thank you for your recommendation and hope you do take the Ghost Tour in the future.

TC, our guide, was entertaining, enthusiastic, and always informative. The pace was good, with most stops adjacent to benches where one could rest a bit. Each person is provided ear buds before the tour begin, so everyone can hear clearly wherever they are in relation to the guide and, with the volume control, as a satisfactory audible level. At times I might wander ahead or apart perhaps 35' to observe something, but could still enjoy hearing 100% of the guide's commentary.

I highly recommend TC and The Best Savannah Tour Company as an excellent way to learn about the historic area, especially if a larger group is involved.

Hi Mike,

Sincerely thank you for your very kind review and taking the time to write valuable detail about our tour. I'm a big fan of the earbuds because as you stated, guests may wander ahead, observe something, and never miss a word. Also, thank you for your kind remarks about my entertaining and enthusiastic storytelling. I love Savannah's stories and it's a privilege to share them with wonderful guests like y'all.

My family hopes y'all enjoyed the rest of your stay in Savannah.

TC was great!! They supply you with headphones wo that you can clearly hear even if you aren't standing right next to him. He also had an ipad to show historical pictures and pictures that previous guests have taken. We would definitely use this tour again!!

TC was excellent in telling the history and stories behind the city, homes and businesses visited. We enjoyed the 9:30pm tour and the places that he brought us too. His enthusiasm is catchy and his method of delivery and group involvement raises the bar.
