Your Guide...

My name is Brandon, and I’ll be your guide through Historic Savannah. My background in the field of history is quite extensive. I graduated with distinction from the Virginia Military Institute (History Major, of course). My historic and interpretive skills were honed while serving as a Park Ranger at the Richmond National Battlefield Park. Additionally, I had an article published wherein I argued that Civil War battles may have caused rain (Ask me about it – I’ll try to send you the link. It’s OK to decline and call me a nerd.). All-in-all, I bring over fifteen years of historian/tour experience to our time together.

I’m also a member of the Georgia Historical Society, the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation, and the Friends of Honey Hill, an organization actively preserving and interpreting the Honey Hill Battlefield in South Carolina.
Once you inevitably learn of my interest in craft beer, it will not surprise you to know I'm a co-founder and Board Member of Richmond Beeristoric, a 501(c)(3) that leads tours of beer-related historic sites in Richmond, Virginia.  

Tours are what I do for fun. My day job is that of attorney. I represent breweries, bars, and my firm’s attorneys in legal ethics and conflict of interest matters. As you can imagine, there’s plenty of work to be done there.  

I live in Downtown Savannah, and it’s exactly where I want to be. Thank you for giving me the great pleasure of showing you around my beautiful hometown.

What Our Customers Say...

Caitlin F. - Yelp

I was fortunate to be on one of Brandon's first tours! My group absolutely loved it. Brandon's knowledge of Savannah  history is extensive and his passion for the city is evident. There are many tours in Savannah that tell good stories, but I've found they are  not always true. This is the first I've been on that combines good history with good story telling. Highly recommend for both visitors and  locals!

Brandon was incredibly knowledgeable, full of interesting facts about Savannah and the area. He knows his stuff! He did an excellent job answering questions. A very comprehensive tour - he took us from the founding of Savannah in 1733 up to the present day. Wear good walking shoes and bring a drink! Loved that it was kid & pet friendly.

Brandon makes learning about Savannah history so much fun! I learned stories I had never heard before and fell even more in love with the city. He is very knowledgeable, but also approachable. I will definitely take his tour when I come back to visit!
