We enjoyed our walking tour with Marcia. Marcia was very friendly and knowledgeable. She did her best to make sure everyone was comfortable and could hear her. There were 14 of us but fortunately a headset was provided. Some static made it hard at first but we got use to it and stayed close to Marcia so we would not miss anything. Marcia is a walking encyclopedia of Savannah history. She was animated and brought out information that went beyond your typical tour. I appreciated her recommendations. A tour makes Savannah much more interesting than just walking around on your own. You’ll do a lot of walking on this tour, which we love, and the pace is brisk. I would have preferred a slower pace and more audience participation. We take a lot of tours and enjoy learning where people are from or hearing their experiences. I would recommend this tour for people interested in history and who want to enjoy Savannah on a more stimulating level. Would not recommend this tour for children under 12.

If your tour guide was Marcia, then your tour was NOT with Explore Savannah Tours, but rather Noble Jones Tours. Explore Savannah does not use headsets. We believe headsets take away from a more personal experience. We prefer taking you at a comfortable pace, and encourage audience participation. I agree, it always makes for a better experience when you are allowed the opportunity to get to know a little about your fellow tour members and where they are from and learning their experiences. We also love having children of all ages on our tour, and we engage them as well. It sounds like you would have better enjoyed a tour with Explore Savannah. We hope you allow us an opportunity to have you as a guest on your next visit to Savannah.

GREAT! This is a two hour walking tour with a congenial and hyper-knowledgeable guide. It was SO useful to really understand more about Savannah than would be provided by walking around that city and reading the many plaques, or even with a guide book. So fun. This city has ALOT of history. You'd need several days of walking tour to complete it all lol.

Tour guide Bill made our 2 hr walking tour most enjoyable. He blended his conversations between historical information and light humor. He was well versed in the area history and conveyed this information well. He captured our attention during his talks that you wanted to listen to every word. The walking pace was easy and included 2 potential restroom stops. The described itinerary did reflect the tour.

I'm assuming that by stating that the itinerary did not reflect the tour, means that you didn't feel like a 'tourist' with Bill, but as his guest. How can we honestly convey in words exactly what your experience is going to be. All we can do is tell you what we will talk about and things you will see. But there are things you just have to 'experience' and we believe a tour with Explore Savannah is one of those things. All of us here at Explore Savannah absolutely love this city and it's always s pleasure to have the opportunity to be your personal host for those 2-hrs that you are on tour. Thank you for taking time to give Bill a review, he enjoyed the tour as well!

This was a great tour. I did it on my very first morning in Savannah. It introduced me to the city's history and at the same time helped me to understand the layout of the city (which if very walker friendly). Our tour guide Rose was awesome - she was knowledgable of the city's history and gave lots of good advice for the rest of the trip. Just to clarify - the tour is 2 hours - not 90 minutes as it states in the description here on Trip Advisor.

We did the walking tour through Savannah w/ Bill.
He was kind, lighthearted and knowledgable.
He did a good job speaking on the origins of the city while infusing architectural history, local history and a choice dad joke or two. :)

Learn some fascinating Savannah history and trivia from Rick as you wander thru several of the city's beautiful squares (I say "parks"). Easy walking, and at 2 hours and about a mile, just right. The 10am tour ends at noon at Forsyth Park; head right to the park's cafe for either the avocado toast or the shrimp 'n grits.

We agree, it’s wonderful to wander through the squares. Yes, they are all small parks and no two are the same! Savannah is filled with history, and fun filled trivia. We offer 2 tours daily at 9:30 and 1:00. They all begin in Wright Square and end in Forsyth Park. The total distance is less than 1-mile, through the squares canopied under live oak trees and offering plenty of benches along the way, if anyone needs to sit a few minutes throughout the tour. Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to give Rick a review!

Excellent overview of Savannah with our guide Rose. She was not only informative and insightful BUT had a great sense of humor. We started out at one of the most infamous squares (5 squares we walked through) and followed it down through to Forsyth Park. The tour was just right for the first or second time visitor. I highly recommend this tour.

We met at 1:00 and she did an amazing job with giving us the background of Savannah. She included facts and various other information that is not written in the history books. I would advise all to take the opportunity to take the walking tour ---it allows you to just take a good look around and picture what the area was like at the birth of the city and how it has grown.

Rosemary, Looking at your name and the time of your tour, I believe Crystal was your guide. Your review is exactly what our goal is for each tour and guest - we try to paint a visual picture and imagine what life would have been like throughout the years, since Savannah was first established.

A wonderful tour with Rose who was very knowledgeable of Savannah history, gave us a great overview of the city as we started our weekend there. She tailored the tour for our interests... also loved hearing about some of the historic houses that are closed due to covid. Made it seem like we actually got to tour them! Thank you Rose for a wonderful tour!
