Talked more about food & places to eat instead of history. We passed a lot of locations not talked about.

Hello CMM - As the saying goes, “You are entitled to your opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts.” And as far as me allegedly talking more about food and places to eat rather than history on my tour - you’ve botched the facts badly. Here’s what was covered during your tour, known locally as the “All Things Savannah” introduction to the city’s history and amenities: Reynolds Square area - We covered the main characteristics that make Savannah unique; the history of the Olde PInk House Restaurant and Tavern; and the impacts descendants of slaves brought from West Africa have had on today’s local culture. Cotton Exchange Building - We discussed commodities being bought, sold and shipped through the Port of Savannah in the earliest days of the city. River Street - We talked about the role of the port in Savannah today; the history of River Street; and Savannah’s role in the African slave trade -- and yes, we talked about food and places to eat here because, after all, this is the city’s premiere tourism/restaurant/entertainment street. Plus, your husband was asking about where a good bowl of seafood gumbo might be found. Johnson Square - We talked about Savannah’s experiences in the Revolutionary and Civil wars in front of the Nathaniel Greene monument. Broughton Street - We talked about today’s Savannah economy; Broughton Street’s role in Savannah’s history; and yep, we talked about some possible good places to eat on downtown’s main street. Wright Square - We talked about how the Yamacraw Native American tribe helped get Savannah off to a good start; and how we honor their chief, Tomochichi. Independent Presbyterian Church - We covered the role this structure played in the filming of Forrest Gump, as well background info on the movie’s production. Chippewa Square - In front of our memorial to Savannah Founder James Edward Oglethorpe, we talked about how and why he laid out Savannah’s system of squares; elements of the early history of the city, and what Oglethorpe did after leaving Savannah for good -- and yes, there are a couple of good places to eat nearby that I mentioned. Cathedral of St. John the Baptist - We talked about the history of this beautiful landmark and when it was open for tours. Hamilton-Turner Inn - We covered the history of downtown Savannah’s most beautiful building (according to many) and the first home here with electric lights. Andrew Low House - Adult home of Girl Scouts of America founder and Savannah native Juliette Gordon Low. Original SCAD HQ - the ca. 1892 armory where the Savannah College of Art and Design, a major engine of the local economy, opened its doors in 1979. Monterey Square - We viewed and talked about the Temple of the Congregation Mickve Israel, a unique property on the square; and the Mercer Williams House, ground zero for Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, both the book and the movie. Armstrong House - We talked about the history of downtown Savannah’s youngest mansion. Forsyth Park - Our tour’s ending point. We talked about the history of the park and the famous fountain at Forsyth Park. And regarding “passing a lot of locations not talked about” -- I created this two-hour tour and curated its content based upon knowledge and judgement gained through being a long-time resident of downtown Savannah, being a tour guide for some six years, and a writer for the past 30. I’m sorry you were unable to get more out of this experience. Thank you for walking with Savannah Sidewalk Tours. Martin Sinderman, owner

I was lucky enough to get Jim Gresham for a tour guide and I was the only tourist so it was a very personalized tour. So great to have a wonderful tour guide and was a great overview of the historic district. Highly recommend!!

Martin provided a very good tour, taking us through the history of Savannah and providing a lot of useful information. The two hours we spent together were interesting since he covered a great breath of topics. Our only issue was that we found he didn't focus on architecture as much as we would have liked.
