We did the Movie Tour and it was our second favorite tour of our entire trip - Bonaventure was #1. Our tour group was small, which was nice because we were all sharing tips about things to do in the city while we waited for the tour to start (because a couple of passengers were late). It went a little fast and the information was kind of superficial, but it was still a lot of fun and we stopped at Leopold's Ice Cream at the end. We were hoping he would be there (guide said he usually is), but he never came in. The guide mentioned a surprise ending she sometimes can offer, but we didn't get to see it (even though several of us tried desperately to bribe her!). We would definitely do this tour again, and would highly recommend it.

Our tour guide was so funny! There was a crying child on the bus, which did effect the quaility of the tour, but that wasn't our guide's fault.

We had lots of fun, and the guide was very helpfull. We wanted to go and eat dinner first so the Company arranged to pick us up at the restaurant and drop us off at the hotel. Very helpfull, on time. Would use them again without hesitation.

Savannah is famous for both the book and the film version of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, as well as the setting for much of Forest Gump, so we thought a movie tour would be an interesting addition in our touring of this city. We were excited to watch the film clips as the bus went from location to location. Unfortunately, and for the first time ever, we actually recommend NOT to take part in something – avoid the Savannah movie tours. The information was shallow, not knowledgeable, there was little passion involved on the part of the guide, and at one point, he offered for everyone to get off the bus and eat ice cream at a well-known ice-cream parlor (aka tourist trap). The clips they showed were always too short and you could barely take in what you saw and the film location at the same time. The air-conditioning in the bus was blasting so high that we were actually freezing cold and we were not able to enjoy ourselves at all - all of us passengers were visibly cold, shivering and miserable, but that was completely ignored. The guide's microphone volume was also too low and we just felt 'milked' for our money on the tour, wishing that it would finally end.

Don’t waste your time or money – this tour is not worth it!

My wife and I took the Foody Tour by this company, it was very good. We had a chef in our small group that made the conversation better. Julie, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and such a sweet person. We were in a climate controlled coach which was great on a dreary day.

We stopped at 6 places all local small businesses, including Paula Deans restaurant, Lady and sons.. 2 of the places were stores one with great spices and teas and another the best chocolatier store I have visited. The chocolate here is expensive but well worth it. You get your free samples but had to purchase more.

On top of the tour expect to tip your tour guide and probably purchase additional items from some places you stop. We spent an additional $70.00 on top of the tour price. If you are a foody then this is a pretty good tour and a lot of fun.
