This tour was all we could have asked for and better than we expected. Jonathan knew the answers to all questions, was engaging, and an overall great host. We will definitely book again if we ever go back to Savannah.

Jonathan was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. So much information and very clear. Open to questions and just a wealth of knowledge, spanning history, individuals, and other locales... I would absolutely recommend his tour!
