Our guide was great, she was so sweet and made sure we all had a great time. We sampled shrimp and grits, sausage rolls with a flakey crust, shepherds pie, deviled egg, pimento cheese sandwich, picked veggies, boiled peanuts, Mac and cheese with a sweet amber sauce and a special drink called a Chatham Artillery Punch dating neck to the 1700’s. We ended at the Savannah Bee Company and tasted different kinds of honey and an apple slice with cheese and honey comb on top. You MUST go, it was a great time!!!!!

Neil was an exceptional guide. He has great “true” stories that keep you engaged. The pubs were unique and probably would have gone unnoticed without Neil. We had a fantastic time and recommended it to the other B&B guests.

Martín was an excelente tour guide - fun and with lots of interesting information. The tour is long enough to know the city. There is a lot of walking and standing so be ware you need to be able to walk for two hours.
