    Went longer than expected but we had no plans after so it was ok. Our group was smaller so it was nice and we got to know I’m eachother. Our guide hung out with us at the last bar so that was nice. Would have liked to hear more of the history or hauntings of some of the bars we went into.

    Our guide, Brad, is an 11th generation Savannahan (sp?). He not only knew about the history of the area (and pointed out architectural details), but he also included current and relevant information. He also shared some great restaurants in the area that are favorites of locals! We have booked guides all over the world and we truly enjoyed Brad!

    Tour guide did a great job.

    Our tour was supposed to start at 10 o’clock. 10 oclock came and went and no guide. I contacted the email on our reservation and also called the Tour contact number. We were then told that the guide would meet us at Reynolds Square shortly. THe tour had already begun in a square near us but not in the square where we were told the tour would begin. We did enjoy the tour. Didn’t understand why we were not told that the tour would begin in another place and we missed that first part of the tour but did enjoy the rest.
