Details

You've been to Savannah before, and you have done other walking tours, but this time you want something different, something off the beaten path, where few will wander. Let's go to Colonial Savannah, where we will find homes built in the late 1700's. Very few homes remain after the Great Fires that left Savannah in ashes. 

This tour is available upon request only, please call us to reserve your time.
