There is so much history in the Savannah area that I never knew. You will need more than one day to see all the sites.

This is a terrific tour of important sites to African Americans AND to the struggle for civil rights. One of the best parts of the tour is to visit one of the churches which hid escaped slaves on the Underground Railroad. The tour is $22 for seniors.

We enjoyed Karen's tour. The history of Savannah's City Market becomes crystal clear on the tour. Much more of the city's character, beginning comes clearer after this tour. We would definitely recommend Miss Karen's tour. We really loved every minute of it.

The Dennis Family reunion took this amazing tour and it was worth the money. Monica was the best tour guide hands down.

There's so much info to see and read. I went with my husband and 2 young children and it's sad to see the suffering and pain that has occurred and then have to... More
