Slow paced tour that didn’t cover much ground
Anonymous

Rose was a wonderful, knowledgeable, and kind person, but this tour just wasn’t a good fit for us. My husband and I were hoping for a faster-paced tour that covered more ground through the historic district of Savannah. I think on our tour, we only walked through 3 or 4 squares before we got to Forsyth Park. I think this would be a better fit for visitors who want a slower, more leisurely experience.

I’m sorry you felt my tour wasn’t a good fit by not covering more ground. We go at a leisure pace best suited for most people. Perhaps a Private Tour would have been a better option for you, this way we would base on tour on your interests and totally customize it to what is best suited for you.

Nice tour. Very informative. Lots of little history you could not get on a self guided tour. Lots of shady spots to stop and learn about the city

Thank you for taking time to review. Yes, shady spots are important during the summer in Savannah!

Learning about Savannah’s history in such a friendly fun atmosphere! Seeing everything “up close” and in a small group with the ability to ask questions is fantastic. Rose was a phenomenal tour guide- very informative, patient and personable❤️

Ron, Thank you for such a wonderful review. My goal is to always make it fun and allow guests to ask questions. Regardless the group size, I always welcome questions. Each tour is customized with my guests in mind and questions help me do that. When on tour, you are my personal guests visiting our beautiful city and I always try to help you make the best use of your time, whether you are here for a few hours or a few days. Thank you for touring with me.
