Very informative not only of history but gives all a lay of the land for other places to visit, things to see and where to eat. Historically correct but is extremely entertaining. Takes all at the pace that is within the time but not pressing, loves questions and will adjust tour to the groups interests. Will take the tour again,... More

My husband and I took a walking tour with Savannah Dan - a fantastic tour guide. The tour went through many of the gorgeous squares in Savannah's beautiful historic district. A great tour, especially if this is your first time in Savannah. A great way to learn about Savannah's rich history.

I went on this tour because of the amazing reviews but I didn't enjoy it all that much. Don't get me wrong, Dan is an extremely intelligent and knowledgeable tour guide but I also found him to be very arrogant which left a bad taste in my mouth.

I missed Dan on the day I was supposed to go, I got lost trying to find parking. So I organised to go the next day. Dan is a little different to the other walking tours because he looks the part of a southern gentleman. He has an excellent way of weaving a tale that makes the tour fun and... More

Savannah Dan is great character! He shows the history of Savannah in many different ways that made Savannah come to life! He entertained the whole family from a 11 year old to a 60 year old. Although my family already loves Savannah, Savannah Dan made us fall in love even more. Not only his character, and hilarious actions but the... More

This tour is worth the time and the money! Savannah Dan is a great storyteller and very knowledgeable about history, architecture, and culture. We were in Savannah for a day and this was a very enjoyable way to see the city. Highly recommended.

This tour came highly recommended by the old guy at the visitor center. I wonder how much Savannah Dan pays him to recommend the tour to unwitting tourists. Savannah Dan could use a personailty plus make-over! He spoke very sternly to a little kid that was on the tour and he also chastised a woman with her little dog. The... More

A great way to learn about historic Savannah from a funny, native son. I Learned more in two hours than I ever would have picked up on my own. He really made his city come to life. Highly recommended!

Dan was knowledgeable about the history of Savannah and presented it in such a witty way that we were all laughing most of the time. He gauged our level of interest perfectly and was able to answer any questions that we had. His grasp of history, architecture and the Civil War were awesome. We learned a lot about Savannah, the...
