I was really looking forward to this tour because I had read such great reviews on Tripadvisor.
This church is clearly a special place and an outstanding example of human determination, so overall I'm still glad I spent the time experiencing this place. It was also evident this is very much a working church with an active, engaged congregation, who proudly and enthusiasticly wishes to share their history with others, so I can fault none of this.
However, based on my own reading and knowledge, I noticed several of the facts by our tour guide were not correct, which really concerns me. Also, the tour presentation was not as polished as it could be, considering this is a paid tour. I know many other past reviewers were impressed by their guide, so as I mentioned in the title, presentation quality could be sporadic. Or it could be since we went in December, and not during the tourist heavy season we did not get the most qualified guide, so I suggest you consider those facts when putting together your itineary to visit the church. Also, I hope the church is more rigorous with quality assurance before turning loose their tour guides because I think this does have the potential of being an important hidden gem to complete the tapestry of a visitor's understanding of Savannah.
