Too many dates and unremarkable facts
Laura_G
, Apr 2022
The tour guide had too much war history on various battles of the Civil War and the American/British battles. Need to focus more on architecture, culture, and facts about life through the years in Savannah.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Thank you for the review! The Savannah Stroll is an overview of Savannah’s history. It covers the founding of the colony, some historic homes, it touches on the Revolutionary War and the Civil War too. Architecture, culture and overall facts about life in Savannah is covered in more detail on the Historic Homes tour. If you have very focused and specific interests we highly recommend one of our private tours.

Good for Civil War history
Brian_H
, Feb 2022
The focus of the tour was almost exclusively on the Civil War, which was not what we had expected. Often stood for extended periods of time listening to the stories/history. We were expecting a more encompassing narrative.
icon Response from Host , Feb 2022
Thank you for the review. The tour was the complete history tour and often times the guide adds extra info along the way and this instance it was Civil War history because it was Presidents Day. The tour was as encompassing as it can be in 1.5 hours! We do offer private tours for those that want to dig deeper into Savannah’s history!

Is this a review or are you just in the habit of writing random pointless bad reviews? We’re just curious.
