Savannah History Walk3/4 Mile • 1.5-2 Hours $18/Adult, Kids are Free
Our Savannah History Walk is an excellent way to orient yourself with Savannah’s past. We start in Savannah’s oldest square and outline the founding of both Savannah and Georgia. From there we head south, square by square, discussing Savannah’s booms and busts.
Some topics covered include the Oglethorpe Plan for squares, the father vs. son atmosphere of Revolutionary Savannah, the city’s most famous duel, Presidential visits, the Civil War era and Federal occupation, the experience of Antebellum and post-War African Americans, and the city’s churches and historic homes. We’ll take our talk right up to the tourist boom brought on by a certain book, the growing Port of Savannah, and where the city goes from here. You’ll also hear about dozens of men and women who made this place what it is.
Consider this walk a true “sampler” of the city’s history. Whether a tourist or longtime resident, you’ll walk away with a greater appreciation of all things Savannah.
Colonial Park Cemetery Tour1/4 Mile • 30-40 Min $9/Adult, Kids are Free
This tour takes place entirely within historic Colonial Park Cemetery. We’ll start by discussing Savannah’s first cemeteries and the eventual move to this location. You’ll see the oldest and newest tombstones still existing in the cemetery. We’ll also explore the graves of famous residents, including some true American heroes, and talk about a few unusual causes of death. This tour wouldn’t be complete without viewing tombstones vandalized by Sherman’s soldiers. We’ll tie it all up with the closing and demise of the cemetery, as well as a more recent true story of how some of its inhabitants accidentally reappeared.
Full Disclosure – This is NOT a ghost tour. Sure, it’s in a cemetery and we’ll discuss some creepy things, but this tour is grounded in fact and actual history. There will be no reference to ghosts, ghouls, banshees, or the like. Savannah has plenty of those tours already!
Savannah Dark History Tour1 Mile • 2 Hours • $19/Adult, Kids are Free
We pride ourselves on fact-based history. That's why we don't give ghost tours. Savannah has so much dark history that we don't need to make up any! This tour begins with a brutal duel that took place in a bar that still exists to this day. We'll move on to discuss Savannah's first murder. You'll see the site of the colony's first cemetery and the grave of a Native who was crucial to Georgia's success. We'll visit the location where a more recent serial killer met a victim, then discuss Colonial Park Cemetery's past and present. Savannah saw a great deal of tragedy during the Revolution, and you'll learn about the toll it took. We'll tie things up at the site of a killing that ironically put Savannah on the pop culture map and helped lead to its booming tourist industry today.
We'll meet in Moon River Brewing's beer garden located just west (or right as you look at the building) of the main brewery entrance. If there is no tour available on your chosen day, please contact us to arrange a tour.
Revolutionary Savannah Tour1 Mile • 2 Hours • $18/Adult, Kids are Free
Revolutionary Savannah was truly a father against son affair. We'll begin with Governor Wright's leadership during the 1760's and the Stamp Act's effects in Georgia. You'll meet the Liberty Boys and see the site of their infamous meeting place. We'll continue through the outbreak of war, the Declaration of Independence, and a duel that changed Georgia's direction. The British returned to town, and we'll cover that in detail. You'll see the Spring Hill Redoubt where the Siege of Savannah came to a bloody end. We'll conclude with the Revolution's massive impacts on Savannah. Other possible stops may include sites related to George Washington's 1791 visit and the William Jasper and Casimir Pulaski Monument. We can tailor any tour to your interests, so just let us know!
