Tour guide was knowledgeable, and was able to answer any questions we or anyone else in the group had. Did a great job telling the story of the beautiful architecture of Savannah, and incorporating the city’s history with the homes.

This was a very informational tour. It would be nice to go in some of the houses. I heard some things that we heard on the trolley and felt our guide was a little full of himself.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Thank you for the review. Your guide covered the history of over 17 homes on the tour. And you were invited to take a tour of the Isaiah Davenport house. That is about all we can do in a two hour tour. As for you guide being full of himself, we’re not sure what that means. It was just a tour.

Our tour guide made the tour come to life. He was able to share many stories regarding the homes as well as the city planning. He was a very experienced guide and a local product himself. I would really recommend this tour.

Very good tour. Our guide Brad brought the history of Savannah and these houses to life. He was very knowledgeable of the time periods and the architecture methods used during those times. My wife and I would love to have him as our guide on future tours.

Interesting tour of exterior of historic homes

The history of the homes was very interesting. However, the tour is not what expected. I expected to tour the inside of the homes.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Thank you for the review! The tour covers the architecture, ironwork and the roll of the homes in history. Because the homes are private homes and not museum pieces, only a few are available for touring. If we went in and out of homes on the tour, it would be a tour that lasted several hours and would be far more expensive! We are delighted you did enjoy the tour!

Very informative tour. The guide was also very gracious about our group running late. It didn't seem to phase him and he still managed to finish pretty much on time! Glad we took the tour.

The Historic homes tour was both interesting and informative. Our guide did a great job explaining the history and different architectural designs throughout the tour. However, I was under the impression we’d be touring the inside of the homes and purposely inquired about that before booking the tour. I asked our tour guide about that and he replied that not all the homes were open because of covid, he’d have to see if our time coincided with available tours of homes, and other explanations that didn’t seem truthful. At the end of the tour I asked again about one of the houses that was open for tours and he said, “Oh, I can get you in that one!” At that point all the other members of our tour had left as the tour had gone beyond the 90 minutes. The tour guide got us tickets to the house tour - I asked if he had to pay? He said yes but that was included in the price we had paid for our tour. So all the others in our group had paid for a house tour and didn’t get it! Hmmm

Everyone on your tour took a tour of the Owens Thomas mansion at their leisure at the conclusion of the tour. Your party did as well. I’m not sure how many homes you expected to visit on a $30.00 ticket in a two hour time period but during Covid 19 and our mask mandates, we made it clear that we offered you the best home experience that we could. You’re guide, who is also the owner, has an arraignment with the house to pay the admission for all guests at tour time. Not only did you get a tour of the Owens Thomas mansion but you were also given extra passes to the Jepson Center for the Arts and the Telfair Mansion. I’m sorry, what was the complaint?
