Get a full view of the history regarding the above areas on one of our journeys (tours). We pride ourselves on providing “Tours for Everyone”! Anyone can and will enjoy our tours. Day Clean is a Gullah phrase that means “new day”, “beginning of the day”, or “dawn”. In addition, it is a philosophy of life that means each day is a new day; each day starts anew; no matter what occurred yesterday – today is a new day (“day clean”) . We provide stimulating, informative, and enlightening journeys. You may even become a little inspired after a journey.Students and Teachers, Families, Religious Groups, Youth Organizations, Conference Attendees, Senior Citizens, Friends, and Others have been enthralled by our journeys. We are sure you will be enthralled, also.We have provided tours and shared the history of the lowcountry to groups for over a decade. Not only can we provide a wonderful tour but we can arrange for living history presentations that are entertaining, engaging, and illuminating.

“Living History”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Tour leader, Jamal Toure, is gifted as an interpreter able to bring the Gullah Geechee culture, history, traditions & language to life. It rained during our tour which may explain why some of the advertised stops weren't mentioned, esp. the Underground Schools. But our stops at the African Baptist Church, the monument to the 750 Haitians who fought alongside colonial troops against the British in 1779, the visit to the Factor's area and the running narrative were important contributions to our visit to Savannah. I'll do it again next time I'm there.

“Hands on History tour”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Dr Jamal Toure' was both informative and entertaining, I liked his personal interaction with those of us on the tour. While he was quite humorous at times there can be no doubt about his sincere feelings about his heritage and the history of Savannah. There were many myths about slavery and the Gullah people dispelled by his presentation, I verified his info upon returning home and found it to very accurate. In an ealier review the party said they had trouble getting their e-tickets
so did we but it was due to Alcataz Tours through whom we booked our tour not not Dr. Toure' . Therefore I suggest you go directly to his website to book and do not use third party agencies.
Thank you Dr Toure' for making our visit a joy!

Reviewed February 2, 2013

This has to be the most interestingly and best presented tour for African American history.
As Jamal drives the minibus and makes various stops, he shares his extensive knowlege through storytelling, humour action. You can feel the love, hope & pride he has for his people.
This is one of the most educational, interesting, & entertaining tours I have ever taken.
