We enjoyed Karen's tour. The history of Savannah's City Market becomes crystal clear on the tour. Much more of the city's character, beginning comes clearer after this tour. We would definitely recommend Miss Karen's tour. We really loved every minute of it.

I would send the tour an email to schedule the tour. They only provide the tour for those who have reserved ahead of time. I hope that answered your question.
