“Civil War tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

We decided to take the Civil War walking tour as we had seen many of the historic homes already at this point in our trip. Savannah was less affected by the Civil War than many other parts of the south. We found our guide to be very interesting. The people on our tour were also very interesting. Many civil way buffs and a couple from England who wanted to learn more about US history. The tour lasted about 2 hours which was just about right. He did stop in several squares to allow people to sit down if they wished while he spoke. I would definitely recommend this tour company. If you are just arriving in the city and want an overview you might want to take one of the other tours--like the historic home one.

“Very Interesting Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

We learned such a lot about Savannah history and its houses on this walking tour. The guide was a long term resident and very well informed, although a little dry in humour.
We had a wonderful 2 hours stoll and then went back after this to linger at some of the sights that were pointed out to us - always so much better when you know more about their history.
I would recommend any one to take this tour as a good way to learn the history of central downtown Savannah.

“Great walking tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We had three groups to take the walking tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and offered us lots of great insight. Although, we didn't see any ghosts on our night tour, it was well worth the cost.

“We saw it all!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2009

Gail took us on a walking ghost tour that covered everything we were curious about and more. She knew her history and the city of Savannah well, and was a delightful story teller. It was a perfect summer evening to haunt around the city and hear spooky stories. We highly recommend Discover Savannah Walking Tours. It was an excellent value for the price and we will be returning for more tours with Gail. The Girl Scouts of Union Grove, North Carolina thank you!

“2 Hour Comprehensive Walking Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2009

We arranged this tour with less than 4 days notice and our tour guide Gail was extremely accommodating and helpful! We brought along our dog (and some baggies!) and we learned a lot about this beautiful city! We expected the tour to last about and hour and we were pleasantly surprised when it hit the 2 hour mark. It was a very warm day and we did the tour at 9 am so as to escape some of the afternoon heat. We should have thought ahead and brought many bottles of water as our dog drank the only bottle that we had brought- but our guide was helpful enough to stop at a CVS for us. We watched "Midnight int he Garden of Good and Evil" before we went and were glad we did since you learn so much about that true story. Our tour guide was nice enough to stop often enough so we could look around and take pictures, she always paused int he shade, and walked at a good pace. This ran us $25 per person.
