After riding around on a tour bus and getting snippets of information on Savannah, we were overjoyed to find Suzanne and learn from her the detailed history of Savannah's beautiful homes and "squares". Fearing rain, she was thoughtful enough to bring two umbrellas.

My husband and I had the pleasure of taking Suzanne's history walking tour of Savannah. It was an excellent experience. Suzanne tailored the tour to our interests. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience. The tour was focused, informative, entertaining, and well paced. We highly recommend Suzanne's walking tour!

Suzanne was our tour guide. The tour was very informative and enjoyable. We never felt rushed, she answered all of our questions and had wonderful suggestions of where to go and what to do later in the week. We would highly recommend Suzanne and the tour to anyone visiting the area.

Suzanne the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. She tailored the guide to my taste and I felt fortunate to have found her. She has an amazing ability to take history and make it... More

We found the flyer at our hotel loby, and having had success with tours in other places, and went for it. This was our first time visiting Savannah and knew very little of it's rich history. We chose to take the "Best of Both" tour because it fit our schedule and needs. With over 16 years experience, our tour guide... More

There are a lot of good tours in Savannah. Dolphin tours, horse-drawn carriage tours, etc, and many are good. Of all of them though First City is the best. My wife and I took the "Best of Both" tour with our children, ages 8 and 10, and it was a very family-friendly experience. Our guide showed us the major attractions... More

Thank you so much for your glowing review. It was truly a pleasure to have you and your family on tour. I see fireworks monthly here, but sharing that experience with your children was great. Through their eyes, I was seeing them with newfound wonder. Thank you for making my night great too! -Suzanne More

I called several tour companies to arrange a tour that fit my preferences and schedule before I found First City Walks. They were happy to work with me and offered several options for me to choose from. I decided upon a personal tour for my family of three. I thought the cost was reasonable. I set everything up by email... More

We booked a walk of the historic district through First City Walks (www.firstcitywalks.com) and it was fantastic. As it turned out, only two of us were on the walk and Suzanne, our guide, was able to tailor the afternoon based on what we would like to see. As we strolled though the city, we could see all sorts of other... More
