Amazing tour of Savannah! This is a small group tour (we had 2 others with us) which was great, the small group allowed us to chat with our guide and ask questions as the tour went along. It’s also very convenient that the company arranges everything such as dinner and the boat cruise, it made for a very relaxing and stress-free evening. The vehicle was also nice, clean and specious. Highly recommend this tour!
