Leroy was the best guide we’ve had in Savannah! Extremely knowledgeable about the history of Savannah and his enthusiasm was off the radar. He interacted with the group and welcomed questions from all. He even extended the tour for those who wanted more! I would highly recommend this tour with him!

Brad was a great storyteller, giving historical facts to us on a super windy, below freezing day!! Tour lasted a solid 2 hrs.

Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. I think everyone in the group enjoyed the tour a little more because of him.

It was a wonderful tour from startt to finish. I learned a lot & enjoyed it, too.

Fantastic tour Extremely informative combining Savannah and Civil war history
