We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! It was a performance with detailed information, great story telling, and a voice that you can hear even when you are trailing behind admiring whatever has caught your eyes. It was definitely one of the highlights of our Savannah visit.

This tour was even better than I expected it to be. Mr. Scott was very knowledgeable and allowed us time to take pictures along the way while keeping a good pace for the tour. This is one tour you don't want to miss.
