Informative tour given by college student who is continuing to learn Milledgeville & Georgia's history. So much history contained in one city. Tour gives a peek back into history which is further enhanced by trolley tour. Definitely worth a visit.

The tour was very enjoyable, would recommend to anyone interested in the Civil War. The parking was a little hard, but all in all very enjoyable

Wonderful hour-long tour by history major at local college. Eight governors lived here. Restoration efforts are truly remarkable -many authentic original pieces and reproductions. A highlight of our visit to this charming community!
