Where you'll be

Begin at the large boulder named Tomochichi's monument in the corner of the square across from a yellow brick courthouse. Found across from the intersection of Bull and York Street.

This experience moves through 6 historical squares and walks alongside the Colonial Cemetery. The last location is Oglethorpe Square named after the planner of Savannah. Gorgeous moss draped live oaks trees pave the way for many tales to be shared.

We were in town for our babymoon and decided to try KT's walking tour. She is an amazing guide and is so knowledgeable and passionate about her hometown. We could've listened to her for a lot longer than the 2 hours and hope to come back and attend another one of her tours in the future! Highly highly recommend.

Kt is super knowledgeable and passionate about her topics. As a local, she’s a treasure trove of information. She is very personable and open to questions. We would definitely book another tour with her, but even after doing 2.

Great storytelling and history woven in. Walking is at a medium pace and seating is available in some areas of the tour so there’s little chance to get overwhelmingly tired. KT very astute to each member of the party.

KT’s was just was awesome! She exceeded our expectations with her local knowledge and fun personality. The tour was perfectly timed and included many historic sites with small, important details. We will book KT again in the future.

We absolutely loved our tour with KT! It was comprehensive without ever being boring. She is such an engaging teacher and guide. We particularly enjoyed how she emphasized all the diverse contributions to the city's history and growth. We also couldn't believe it when it was over because the time passed so quickly. She gave us great food and entertainment suggestions at the end as well! Would highly recommend to anyone, especially to start your time in Savannah.
