Description

Meander through the iconic, landmark district and join in conversations with a long-time resident. Explore wards and squares through his eyes and perspective. Experience how Savannah has changed over time. Learn who built and purchased certain homes and how they remodeled or maintained the historic structures. From Savannah's financial district to mix-use squares, you will be immersed in the rich and colorful history that has put Savannah on the map.

Tours begin at 11am and 1pm at our store location. You will be slowly guided through the historic district by our certified guide. Stop in front of beautiful, historic homes and learn who used to live there, how they renovated, more. Learn the history of our squares and how they have changed and changed again over the years. Your guide has lived in Savannah for 30 years and has deep roots within the historic district. This is the guide who knows everyone and everything and will share that information with you. This tour is not your typical guided tour. With this tour, you will feel as if you're visiting an old friend and he's just showing you around his town.

Be treated as if you're an old friend that you haven't seen in 30 years and have open conversations with your friendly guide. This is not your typical guided tour where you just listen. Your guide loves your questions, your interaction, and your conversation. This is a one of a kind tour that you will not be able to take with any other tour company. Passing the Torch, which means "passing the history on to you", was designed specifically for Cool Savannah Tours and Gifts.
