Our walking tour with Bobby Davis was really wonderful. He was very knowledgeable on the history of the city as well as minute details - such as where the stain glass in the cathedral came from (Innsbruck, Austria if you are curious). He tailored the day to our interests and packed a lot in for us in the 1/2 day tour. With Bobby we saw some hidden gems that we know we would have missed out if we did a self-guided tour. We both agree that this was one of the highlights from our trip and without hesitation would recommend a tour from Bobby to anyone. It really was just an excellent tour.

I booked the tour by e-mailing him one week in advance with our dates and interest. He was extremely professional. He e-mailed me back the same day and via e-mail we set up the tour. The evening before the tour he called to confirm and set a meeting place. He offered our hotel lobby but also gave us a suggestion for breakfast before hand if we wished (Goose Feathers sticky buns with pecans).

We had just a short time to spend in Savannah during our trip to Hilton Head so we booked the tour with Bobby based on the reviews here. We've done the generic hop on hop off trolley tours in other cities and wanted something more personal for a city like Savannah. We are really glad we made this decision since we got to ask lots of questions and focus on the things that we were most interested in seeing. Bobby even got our teenage son to laugh and smile so that says a lot! An added bonus was getting photos with all of us together.

Bobby was great! He's so personable - more like a friend showing you around his fine city than your basic tour guide. And what a trooper! He didn't skip a beat - it was raining cats and dogs and he kept our scheduled tour, making being out in the rain kinda fun. Being on vacation, weather can always be an issue - we appreciated being able to stay on our vacation itinerary.
Days later he's even following up --- see how personable he is!

Based on the reviews here, I called the day after Christmas to inquire about touring Savannah.
In all fairness, I left a message asking about availability for the following two days and left two phone numbers to reach us at. I am aware this is short notice, but was hoping (actually, expecting) a return phone call at some point. I wouldn't be upset if Bobby was booked (again, my fault for last-minute planning), but a courtesy call would have been appreciated.
If there are no tours due to the holiday, that could have been posted on the web site and/or answering machine.
Disappointing lack of follow-up from a TA attraction who receives such rave reviews.

My wife, two of our children (14 and 18) and myself had a fantastic private tour of Savannah with Bobby Davis. Knowledgable, articulate and energetic he brought the history and architecture of this wonderful city to life. Pay attention to his recommendations - the man knows Savannah.
