After browsing a few walking tour brochures at the Visitor's Centre we settled on the one that promised "lechery, treachery and debauchery". We had taken one of the trolley tours the day before and although it provided a good overview of the city, it lacked the local colour than we would have liked. Shortly after our walking tour with Phil began the following day, it was apparent that we would be encountering local colour! He was informative and entertaining and managed to hold the attention of our two teen-agers throughout the duration of our tour - all without the aid of technological enhancements of any kind! We would recommend Old City Walks to families who wants to walk "outside the box" and who are looking for something a bit different.

Steve Ellis was great and very generous with his stories and time though there were only two of us on the tour. We walked around old Savannah hearing the delightful, brave, touching and sad stories of the women who contributed to this fascinating city. We had limited time in Savannah otherwise would have signed up for another walking tour to get another dose of Steve's enthusiasm and knowledge

Thoroughly enjoyed our over 2 hr tour. Not necessarily charismatic guide, but certainly knowledgable. We were the only couple on our tour so the guide personalized it to our interests. Definitely a great way to tour the city and an excellent value for your vacation dollars.

Thank you so much for your review. It was indeed an honor having you join us on your visit. As you pointed out, while Mr. Higgins (who is no longer with our company) generally lacks charisma, he certainly has a body of knowledge and is willing to share it. We look forward for your return to Savannah when we can take you on another one of our original tours.

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!
