Martin did a great job taking us around the city and telling us about Savannah's interesting history. He gave good restaurant recommendations and we ended the tour feeling very knowledgeable about other fun things to do.

Being a huge fan of the book as well as the movie, I was so excited for this tour during my trip to Savannah. This tour did not disappoint! I was lucky enough to be the only person during my tour. Martin is extremely knowledgeable about both the book and movie, as well as the characters lives and Savannah during the time of events. If you want a tour that is strictly facts, chose this one! Martin even has a cool app on his phone which he uses to let you listen to actual recorded conversations and see pictures from the crime scene. At the end of the tour Martin gives you a map of downtown Savannah where he circles points of interests as well as good restaurants to try and museums to see. Don’t miss out on this tour if you are a fan of Midnight or want to learn about Savannah in general!

Hi Olivia -

Thanks for letting me be a part of your first trip to Savannah - and thank you for your kind review!

The iPhone/iPad app was released by John Berendt himself as part of 20th anniversary of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Combine it with Nancy Hillis' "Vamp of Savannah" and you've got a great deep dive into The Book and The Movie.

Thanks again, and safe travels to you always-
Martin Sinderman

My fiancée and I have both read the book and watched the movie for Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. But, it’s important to note that this is NOT necessary to still have a great time on the tour. Martin was very knowledgeable on the subject, and a great storyteller. Our group had a mix of folks; some that had seen the movie, some that read the book, some that have done both, and some that have done neither. He made sure not to give away too much of either the book or movie, leaving us wanting to go back and enjoy them for ourselves. We highly recommend this tour whether you are familiar with the work or not. It’s a perfectly Savannah thing to do while you are here!

I can't think of any better compliment about this tour than "It’s a perfectly Savannah thing to do while you are here!"

Thanks again!

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour today. Martin did an excellent job sharing the details about the book and all of the characters. Just the right amount of time and visits covered in this walking tour. Wonderful way to spend our last afternoon in Savannah.

Hi Madeline -

Thanks for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your tour -- I especially enjoyed talking with you about what Midnight characters who are not with us any more would think of today's Savannah -- interesting food for thought!

Thanks again -
