What makes this tour special
Savannah, Georgia is a charming Southern with a Historic District of cobblestone streets and grand antebellum houses. Savannah is home to diverse communities that are waiting to be explored, delicious food, vibrant nightlife and beautiful architecture set against a backdrop of Spanish moss and Southern charm.
On your private half-day walking tour, you will:

Explore the historic district, a handsome quarter with the feel of a bygone era with more than 1,100 historically significant buildings;
Pass by The Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist, a 143-year-old Roman Catholic Cathedral;
Take a stroll down Chippewa Square, one of the most known squares featured in one of the bench's scenes in the movie Forrest Gump, which was later donated and showcased in the Savannah History Museum;
See the Davenport House Museum, built in 1820 by master builder Isaiah Davenport;
Learn the secrets of Savannah from its founding history - the Civil War, the Revolution, architecture and the role of women, asyou pass by Juliette Gordon Low's birthplace;
Discover The Marshall House, a historic hotel and iconic building that was used as a hospital during the civil war and has been part of Savannah's history since 1851;
Walk down Johnson Square, the oldest and largest square with a 50-foot marble monument to honour General Nathanael Greene;
End your tour at Savannah's waterfront and discover some great dining recommendations from your guide.
Your tour begins at the beginning of the city, where your guide will recount Savannah’s founding and evolution over more than three centuries, remnants of which are present throughout. Savannah’s historic district occupies a 2.2-square-mile area that has been conserved since 1966.
Painstakingly restored using olden trades and heritage materials, Savannah’s historic district contains more than 1,100 historically and architecturally significant buildings, including examples of Federal, Victorian Regency, Greek and Gothic Revival, and Italianate architecture.
The authentic paint hues of the city form a stunning palette of gorgeous Savannah blues, greens, reds and pinks that are synonymous with Southern charm.
As you pass balconied mansions, dripping with bougainvillaea and share the road with horse-drawn carriages, you’ll experience why this Georgian city is an American favourite. Explore the neatly paved squared, hemmed by grand mansions, adorned with wooden shutters keeping in some of their long-hidden secrets.
Your tour ends with a leisurely light bite and drink, where your guide will happily share their favourite hotspots and hidden gems for you to enjoy during the rest of your time in the city.
