Walking Tours In Savannah, GA

A view of historic houses along a street in Savannah's Historic District.

Savannah has dozens of tour companies and independent guides, offering a wide range of walking and other tours designed to give you a quick and easy summary of the city and its history.

An overview history tour is best if you want an introduction to Savannah. If you have visited before, or are interested in something in particular, there are also many tours that look deeper into specific aspects of Savannah’s history: the people and places featured in the book (and film) Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which reignited Savannah’s tourist industry (see details of Midnight and movie tours) or the city’s Irish (see below: cultural history tours).

Guides can also introduce you to the city’s Civil War history and its architecture, or the history of the slave trade and of African-Americans in Savannah.

!The information below is correct as of November 2017, but please check availability and all details directly with the tour company or guide when planning your trip. Tour availability may vary by season, and operators may withdraw or change specific tours without notice.
