Beverly PeekUnited States
Bethany was exceptional. She was such a delight and had a lot of knowledge about Savannah and its history. I would use her again if in Savannah.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Beverly for allowing me to be a part of your Savannah experience. Say hello to Liam, Reesie, and the others. I hope you enjoy your pastry treats. Tell Mike I said keep adding to those 41 years. Enjoy Hilton Head Island. Bethany- your TBL guide in beautiful Savannah
Jill WaltonUnited States
Our family really enjoyed our tour with Bethany. Most impressive—She was patient with my children and engaged them with questions. Her knowledge and history having grown up in Savannah made the tour special. Her own travel experiences (to Africa where slaves left their home to come to America) added to her tour. I was not surprised Bethany had been a Director if Education at a museum. She's a natural teacher of history. First time using this site was a success and we will use it again!
Kathleen GeisnerUnited States
Our tour was with Bethany and she had wonderful knowledge of the city. She was kind about telling us where to park and where to meet. She answered questions prior to us getting there, and personally called on the phone to discuss details. After the tour she suggested "The Belford" for dinner, and the food and service were top notch. Thank you from Pennsylvania.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good morning Kathleen: Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your Savannah experience. I enjoyed you, Doug and the girls. I am feeling quite well-no pain at all. A soak in epsom salts and Tylenol last night may have done the trick. I sent you text last night. Call me when you come into Savannah. I will meet you where ever you go for you next tour to take a picture. Have a lovely day. Bethany Your TBL guide in beautiful Savannah
Susan MahoneyUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan and family. I truly enjoyed sharing our Savannah story with all of you. Tell those teens I said keep up the good work. ---Bethany

Bethany did a great job. Our entire group of 12 really enjoyed the way she combined history with personal stories and just enough politics. We could hear every word she said. She has a wonderful personality and clearly loves what she does and lots of the locals understandably like her. She was really wonderful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alan. Strolling with you and your cousins was a total joy for me. I hope you enjoyed your lunch at Belford's.
Susan VittorioUnited States
Bethany was awesome. I am was with my elderly mother with mobility issues and Bethany made seeing Savannah possible. She is a true historian and a delight.
My husband and I and five other friends had an amazing tour with Bethany yesterday. She captured the spirit and history of the South and Savannah and managed to corral all us which is no mean feat. Very knowledgeable. We all loved every minute of it and highly recommend her as a tour guide. Thank you for a wonderful day!
Scott SchafrankUnited States
Bethany greeted us with warm hugs and proceeded to take us a stroll that covered the historic district. She asked if we had a later commitment as she wanted to give us a leisurely experience. She shared personal stories of her childhood in Savannah and mixed these with an encyclopedic historical knowledge of the region. It seemed she knew everyone we passed by, from William who was rummaging through trash for food to a councilman filming an ad for his mayoral campaign. What a special person she is!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Scott: Thank you both for a great afternoon. I hope your subsequent days are as joyous. I hope you're getting some of our good food on and off the tourist beaten paths. Look me up when you come this way again. How far are you from Philadelphia? I may be visiting friends next spring. Bethany Your TBL guide in beautiful Savannah
Steve EdwardsUnited States
Bethany was FANTASTIC! She met us at our B&B on time (she actually called and I told her if she wanted to come early we would be ok since it was going to be record heat that day - we did start an hour early). Bethany was Sssssoooooo nice! She really knew her history, but it was more about her stories and her experiences. She would tell us things about the city and mixed in stories about how it related to her and her family and growing up in Savannah. We feel we made a new friend! She is awesome!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steve and Jane: I love the tours I come away from feeling like I spent the day with old friends. Thank you sometimes seems inadequate when folks being us joy, but we say it anyway. I'm adding an extra portion of gratitude to this Thank you. Take good care. Let me know when you're coming this way again. Bethany
Jon ConahanUnited States
Bethany was our tour guide and she was a 5 star pro. She was fun, knowledgeable, articulate, and very responsive to our interests and timing. She was an absolute pleasure and we would recommend her to our friends with enthusiasm. We would ask for her again if we have occasion to come through Savannah in the future. Jon and Susie Conahan
Maureen MaddenUnited States
The African tour of Savannah hosted by Bethany was extraordinary in so many ways. Bethany's knowledge of African slavery, African Americans in the South, Savannah's rich history including the Civil War is extensive. She melded it all together wonderfully as we were escorted in comfort around the historic district with its amazing architecture, gorgeous parks, monuments - Bethany knew about various controversies inherent in many of those sites. Our time with Bethany grand.
William CarringtonUnited States
Bethany is just awesome! So fun to learn about beautiful Savannah from a true local that loves the city with a deep passion. I would and do recommend her to anyone who lets me know they are going to visit Savannah. She is the ONLY way to tour the town!
Dan ReynoldsUnited States
Our Savannah city tour with Bethany couldn't have been better! She gave us an extensive tour, both out of the main city and in, sharing history and culture. Our lunch spot featured the best shrimp & crab we've ever eaten! When she learned we hadn't rented a car, she threw in a few more must see sites to make sure we wouldn't miss them. We explored more on our own later, but our impression & memories of Savannah would not be what they are without Bethany & her very passionate, personable tour. So fun!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you my dears!!!
Bruce BergerUnited States
5 stars Bethany. We spent an enjoyable, educational and enlightening tour with Bethany. She was one of the best tour guides we have had after almost 40 years of travel. To truly experience the past history of Savannah give Bethany a call.
Emily PolingUnited States
We thank you so very much Bethany for a marvelous and outstanding tour of Savannah. It was perfect and it was exactly what we wanted. The pace was just right us, the tour was so delightful and memorable!!! We loved all the places you took us to and the lunch at a local restaurant was scrumptious!
Debra L.United States
We had the most perfect day in Savannah with BETHANY! We only had one day to see Savannah and not only did she take us to all the landmarks but also to many hidden treasures. Her knowledge of history, nature, architecture, politics and folklore brought the city alive for us. When she dropped us off we felt like we were saying goodbye to an old friend. It is impossible for us to imagine a better tour guide for Savannah than BETHANY!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I have one response for all of you Debra, Shrimp and Grits and Deviled Crabs when you come back to Savannah. Thank you for a great day.
Thomas LajsicUnited States
Bethany is an interesting and entertaining guide. She imparted her great knowledge of the history and culture of the region. The personal stories of her life experiences were most interesting. We learned about the architectural styles of Savannah and history of the various buildings. I highly recommend this tour.
George LazenbyUnited States
Bethany's tour around Savannah was the highlight of a trip there my girlfriend and I recently took. Bethany is a Savannah native with vast knowledge of the city's history, some of it "off the books" and based on her own experiences growing up there. She's got a warm personality and left us with a much more informed perspective about the city than any trolly or large group tour could have. If you are traveling to Savannah Bethany's tour is a MUST!!!
Maria McCallUnited States
Bethany Joyce's personal walking tour of Savannah was excellent and a fitting welcome to a gorgeous city steeped in tradition. Bethany is a local born and reared here and her deep knowledge of history and amazing story telling ability kept us enchanted and not wanting to part from her. She has a warm, friendly, beautiful spirit and is so much fun to tour with! One of our group of 12 said this, "If this was my only day in Savannah, Bethany would truly be THE highlight and I would be totally satisfied with
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Maria, Thank you so much for these kind words. Our Savannah stroll was so much fun. Tell the group thank you as well. I look forward to hearing from you again. ❣

What a fun afternoon! Thank you for accommodating our larger group. I've been receiving such positive comments from the team with how much they enjoyed the tour - learning the history of Savannah, mixed with your personal touch really made the day a success. Sorry for bringing chilly weather from Boston with us ;-)
Russell DegenzaUnited States
Bethany was incredibly kind and friendly. She greeted all of us with big hugs, and I really got the feeling she was looking forward to the tour as much as we were. She was born and grew up in Savannah, knew everything about her city, and as a black women who went to school during the segregation/desegregation years, she had great stories. She was kind and friendly, funny as all hell, and, brilliant. She was, a great story teller, and a true Savannah treasure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Russell. The truth is that you help make the tour. Doing is tour is like hanging out with good friends when I have folks like you.
Hampton BeesleyUnited States
Bethany was very knowledgeable regarding Savannah. We had the best experience. She was wonderful. We would recommend her to anyone. We made a very personal connection with her.
Doris M.United States
Our driving tour of Savannah with Bethany was wonderful! Her knowledge of Savannah's history (and the stories behind the stories!) is extensive. Combined with her story-telling skills and beautiful personality, it was the perfect day! We especially loved driving through the neighborhoods outside of the historic district. Bethany brought a comfortable mini-van to accommodate my 91-year-old mom-in-law's wheel chair. Ma loved it… Thank you, Bethany!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And I loved you all. Ma's sense of humor is a riot!!!
Barton ShawUnited States
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
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Barton and Susan are the cat's meow! I had a blast with the two of you. Thank you!!!
