A Walk through Savannah with Ted Eldridge
One of the most knowledgeable, experienced guides in Savannah, Ted offers ten popular walking tours. As a life-long educator, writer and storyteller, Ted takes great pride in sharing the unique beauty of our city in fun and interesting ways.
Depending on which tour you choose, you will see homes and churches considered among the best of their architectural styles in America – Federal to neo-Gothic, Italianate, Classic Greek, English Regency, French, Victorian and, even, contemporary.
Or you can trace the history of the War between the States as it affected Savannah, following the paths of the remarkable list of those who found themselves in Savannah at the time: Robert E. Lee, the cotton merchants and slaves, both Confederate and Union foot soldiers, Jefferson Davis, William Tecumseh Sherman and more.
Or choose the Gates and Gardens Tour to peek in on some of the most beautiful gardens of the Old South and learn about the mounds of flowering shrubs, ancient Live Oaks and Spanish moss of this semi-tropical paradise; or, discover the roots of the music and style of Savannah's hometown boy and four-time Academy Award winning composer, Johnny Mercer, on Ted's "Pardon My Southern Accent" tour.
Or, take an evening Walk Through Savannah by Lantern Light, a magical journey through this most beautiful city in America. Each tour's route varies from the others; but, all will take you through Savannah’s world-famous little parks - the Squares.
Each tour can be scheduled for two hours at $15 per adult
