See Savannah the way Savannahians do- with a drink in hand!
It's classier than a pub crawl and tipsier than a history tour! Pick up a little knowledge while also picking up some Savannah-centric libations from a few of Downtown's nicer watering holes. Sip on Madeira wine (bottled exclusively for Savannah by the Rare Wine Co. ), mead, a classic mint julep, and end with the Chatham Artillery Punch, which was invented right here over 200 years ago! You'll be all finished up and loosened up just in time to go get some dinner, where you can impress the people at the table next to you with all the Savannah lore you learned along the way!
All participants must be 21+. Please remember to bring your ID.
We meet in Telfair Square late in the afternoon, then head to Jazz'd Tapas Bar for their Baked Cheese Terra Cotta plate, paired with a glass of Madeira wine. After leaving Jazz'd, we wind through City Market and Johnson Square, then head to the mead bar at Savannah Bee Company, where you get to sample five different artisanal meads. A brief walk through Wright and Oglethorpe Squares takes us to the 17Hundred90 Inn and Restaurant for mint juleps. After that, we head to the eastern edge of the Historic District for Chatham Artillery Punch at the Pirates' House.

Bonnie was an excellent tour guide and easy to talk to. She was smart and funny and had a sense of humor that really played well with ours. She gave us plenty of breaks along the way to sit (we'd already been walking for hours before our tour began) and she was very well prepared when we stopped at the different establishments for our snacks and refreshments. I'd definitely recommend Miss Bonnie to anyone looking for a historical tour!
