What people are saying about Savannah

We met at their office on MLK, our group was gathered promptly at 11. Our tour guide/driver was Dennis and he was very knowledgeable of Savannah. First stop was lunch at Crab Shack. Boat ride was great and saw plenty of dolphins. Then to beach and light house. To do light house was extra so we didn't go up it. Would definitely go again if in area

The bus tour was planned perfectly as a overview of the entire route before they dropping you off at the boat dock. You still have time at that point to go back and see items that you enjoyed on the bus tour on the SAME one-purchased ticket. It was a great value

Had a fantastic time. The guide and ships captain were very informative. The best was seeing the dolphins. We saw multiple pods. A mother with a 2 week old. Loved it.

Excellent event. Beautiful gospel music. Luscious dinner. Great event.

absolutely worth the price. I would definitely go again.
