Awesome Civil War Tour
Sharon_S

This was a great 2-hour walking tour with our awesome guide Keith. We were given a hearing device so that we could hear Keith's presentation of the historical facts of the Civil War without disruption from the city noise. Keith is extremely knowledgeable about the facts of the Civil War. During our 2 hour tour while listening to the facts of what happened over 200 years ago, we also visited some of the historical sites of where the soldiers gathered during that time. I would recommend this tour primarily because of the hearing device and Keith's vast knowledge of the Civil War. Thank you Keith for the enjoyable tour.

Tour was informative and a great way to spend a couple of hours touring historic Savannah. We visit Savannah at least once a year, and this tour added a unique perspective to our knowledge of Savannah and its history. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and brought Savannah during the Civil War to life.

Our guide Kelsey was charming and knowledgeable. I was fascinated to hear about “southern mentality.” I particularly liked being able to hear the entire tour even though we were slower walkers. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Felt like an outdoor lecture
Jason_M
, Mar 2022
We were disappointed. I know these tour guides must do so many of these tours that they say the same things over and over. But when you are on the tour, this is your only experience, and you hope the tour guide will try to bring these stories alive so you walk away with a broader understanding. Our guide was like a 10th grade high school lecture. It was boring and actually felt like such a punishment, we broke off from the tour early just to salvage the afternoon

Thank you for the review. I think you picked the wrong tour, did you ask any questions? If you don't participate , it would sound like a lecture. We are historians, not actors. if you would like a refund , please call the office (912)660-6468

Civil War History in Savannah Comes Alive

Our guide did a great job of tying in history prior to the civil way with Savannah’s history and that of the region. Linking all of this together with the culmination of the capture of Savannah really added a ton of value. I definitely recommend.
