A Recent Review of this tour

My wife and I toured with Bethany and she was a fantastic. Her knowledge was exceptional across many subjects and she made the day entertaining and enjoyable. From River Street to Fort Pulaski to Tybee Island to the historic squares this was truly a day to remember. I feel like we got a great overview of Savannah and the surrounding area. The day was a very comfortable pace with a combination of driving and walking. Thanks Bethany
