We did the "Beat the Heat" 8AM two-hour tour on Saturday, June 15. It was our last day of a Charleston-Savannah vacation and was the only time Bobby Davis had available during our trip. I'd recommend that you book a tour early with Bobby for the first day of your Savannah visit so you get an overview of the best sites and attractions. He will provide recommendations for restaurants and other attractions. Then you can go back to the main sites and really look around later. I would also recommend doing a longer half day tour. We saw about 5 squares, a bunch of houses and gardens, the Cathederal, Colonial Park Cemetery and Forsyth Park Fountain. After 2 hours, we were really just getting started. All the reviews pretty much sum up that his tours are enjoyable and educational and he is a fun, snarky guy (especially if you graduated from an SEC school other than Georgia). Yes, his tours are more expensive than other group walking tours and the trolley, but the tour will be with your family and friends or maybe another couple if just you and your spouse reserve a tour. It is just you and Bobby, no big crowd. He will send you pictures or take pictures with your camera. Want to know what the asking price of a house with a sale sign? Just ask. He engages with the local folks and homeowners which makes things interesting. He even had us smell a blooming Magnolia! I always recommend that people do tours or have a guide when vacationing otherwise you usually end up wandering around following a guide map and you miss some really neat stuff. A tour with Bobby Davis is worth the price.

Bobby took us on a great tour of the Historic district which we really enjoyed and was very informative. His charm and humour were infectious and it really gave us a great start to our time in Savannah. The extra information that he gives you about restaurents etc makes the tour even more worthwhile.

My sister and I toured with Bobby while in Savannah and I must say he was the best guide we had on our 17 day trip in the South. First of all, he had a great sense of humor which kept us laughing for two solid hours. We were not only educated on the buildings, neighborhoods, parks, and history of Savannah, we were thoroughly entertained. He gave us an insight that only someone who grew up in that area would know and understand. And as an added bonus, he took pictures of us by all the famous parks, homes and the cathedral, as well as additional photos of places we saw on our tour. I must say, "he's good people." You'll have to ask Bobby about that saying. If you want to have fun while touring Savannah, I would highly recommend Bobby's tour for all ages.

Bobby took us on a wonderful ghost tour of Savannah. He was informed, engaging, and personable. We didn't want anything too scary, so he made the tour fun for all while still telling us about the ghosts. He recommended good restaurants and a great ice cream place. He made sure we were set for the rest of our vacation.

We just took a tour with Bobby today. I highly recommend him! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Savannah and directed us to good places to eat as well! We took our tour early so we could get a feel for the area, then were able to go explore more on our own! He has a great personality and is fun to be around!
