We met up with Gregg and a couple other people in the park. Gregg was very friendly, and knowledgeable. He made the whole tour very interesting, and it felt like he was telling a story. The history on these historical buildings is amazing. I wish this had been the way my history classes were taught in school. I would have retained a lot more. I highly recommend this tour! My husband and I had great time!

Ours was a small group, which made it really cool. Tour guide, Martin was very entertaining and knowledgeable. He said he’s been giving the tour for 8 years! You could tell. He was very thorough and could answer every question we had. The only thing that would make this tour better was if the tour could include going inside the houses/sites.

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

Enjoyed the narration, ride was comfortable & period stops with actors renditions were a real plus.

Fantastic tour Extremely informative combining Savannah and Civil war history
