We spent an enjoyable afternoon in the company of our tour guide, Chuck, who it turns out, had spent time visiting our hometown, St. Augustine. It was nice to compare our two historic towns.

As luck would have it, the other couple who was booked for this tour, The Backstory, did not show up, so my husband and I had a private tour of historic Savannah. We had a wonderful afternoon touring the beautiful streets and squares of the city. The "backstories" made us laugh and realize that there is always more to history than what is written in the books!

We will definitely return for another adventure!

We had the pleasure of taking a walking tour with Tony Higgins on Dec 24th. His stories of the history and especially the historic characters of Savannah were intriguing. The tour was so much more than the standard walking tours we had in the past. The 2 plus hours of the tour just flew and we didn't want it to end. Tony recommended a book for us to buy which we purchased at the bookstore. Looking forward to reading it and learning more about Savannah--we will take another tour with Sellers and Higgins when we return.

We had a good time on this tour. The tour guide, Steve Ellis was extremely knowledgable. He's a lived in savannah his whole life. He told a ton of great stories that were just below the surface of what you'd be able to find on google, so it was a nice treat. The tour was great!

In addition, my mom got ill the morning of the tour and they were super friendly and understanding. Great customer service!

My wife and I did two walking tours with Tony in November. We had a great time. Tony is very knowledgeable, patient with questions, and thorough. We really enjoyed both tours and highly recommend the company.

It's always a delight to have our friends from New England visit. Tony's forte are those stories-beneath-the-surface he likes to share. We are honored that not only did you take one of our tours, but also returned the following day to take another! Thank you.

We recently visited Savannah for the first time. We were looking for a great walking tour of the city, and it was recommended that we call Phil Sellers. We were not disappointed. He was not only knowledgeable, but also personable and an amazing story teller. There's so much history that we pass by everyday, without realizing it. Phil makes sure to bring the small details to life through his anecdotes and stories. We can't wait to get back to Savannah again to do another Sellers and Higgins tour. Job well done!
