What you can expect

As you walk through Savannah's Historic District on a guided tour, get a peek inside some of the city's historic homes and buildings. Led by professional, licensed guides, explore the city's rich architectural heritage, including majestic mansions like the Davenport and Juliette Gordon Low homes.

From Reynolds Square, stroll through rows of charming mansions and hear stories of the city's rich architecture and history every step of the way. Learn why the renowned English novelist, William Makepeace Thackeray, described Savannah as “…a tranquil old city, wide-streeted, tree-planted, with a few cows and carriages toiling through the sandy roads” upon his stay in the city.

Journey to the Owens-Thomas House, a colorful mansion considered 1 of the finest examples of English Regency architecture in the US. Visit the Green Meldrim House, a Gothic Revival styled mansion, where General William T. Sherman stayed during the Civil War. Learn about the history of domestic dwellings from colonial times to the present, and about the city's preservation movement.

Your tour concludes with admission to the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, a house and museum at the birthplace of the founder of the Girl Scouts, and 1 of the best examples of Early Republic, Italianate architecture in the South.
