Attraction details
Owner description: Enjoy a 90 minute tour of Savannah's Colonial, Revolutionary and Civil War history; pop culture; historic buildings; monuments; squares; churches; and gardens. Each of our squares with their overgrown oaks and Spanish moss has a story waiting to be told that cannot be found on a monument or historic marker. Savannah Belle Tours invites you to partake in the history of "the Hostess City of the South" like you have never experienced before. Also available private, group, or ghost tours.

This is a small business owned and run by a couple. Our tour guide was the Savannah Belle herself, Michelle. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the city past and present. I learned a lot on her tour, which visited many of Savannah's 22 squares and took us by a number of landmarks we were able to go check out later. Michelle told us the history of the city and many of its historic buildings, but she also pointed out good restaurants and other destinations. I felt that we got a much better overview of Savannah than we would have gotten on a trolley or carriage tour. The 90 minutes was perfect for a walking tour--we were tired afterward and ready for lunch, but not so exhausted that we were done for the day. This was definitely a highlight of our trip and a great way to get oriented to the city, and we would highly recommend Savannah Belle Tours to anyone!

This tour was amazing!! We're so glad we took the tour. We learned so many things that we would not have otherwise by just walking around. My two boys (ages 14 & 12) really enjoyed it as well.

We only had one morning to spend in Savannah, and I am so glad we found Michelle through a Groupon search of things to do there. In an hour and a half, we learned so much specific history about the city--so many interesting people, architectural styles and surprising facts. Michelle was also a huge help when our hotel plans fell through on a holiday weekend, with everything downtown full, and she recommended a great place for lunch. My two daughters (16 and 10) learned a lot and both wished we could have stayed longer. I would take this tour again if I returned to Savannah. Even without the Groupon, it is a great deal.

We live in Savannah, so we've done lots of walking tours. We took out-of-town friends on Michelle's walking tour, and we all though it was terrific. Michelle is a history buff, married to a history professor, and you can tell she loves, loves, loves what she does. She has done extensive research and knows her stuff, and you can really believe what she tells you, unlike what we Savannahians tend to call the "trolley truth." Do take a trolley tour for the overview, but also take at least one walking tour, and, ideally, make it Michelle's.

We really enjoyed our tour with Michelle because you could tell she was sharing the info that was not just the facts found online but tidbits that she personally researched. It was refreshing to take a stroll with someone who was not a "cookie cutter" scripted tour guide from a mass tour company. We were extremely glad to take Michelle's tour during the beginning of the vacation because she explained the general layout of the historic district so you know what parts of town to explore for the rest of the trip. Would defiantly recommend this day time tour for any first time visitor of Savannah.
