I loved this tour. The guide knew the history of the Jewish population in Savannah. We had just come from a trolley tour and this tour nicely dovetailed with the trolley tour. We saw ancient Torahs and other Jewish heritage artifacts. Highly recommend this tour.

Took the tour of the beautiful temple and learned a lot of the history from the 1700s to now. It has the oldest Torah in the United States. Worth the visit.

We were surprised to find this synagogue in Savannah. Definitely worth your time to stop in and hear the history. The small museum has such interesting artifacts. Nancy was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the place.

Unknown jewel among the houses of worship in Savannah. Staff is always friendly and informative. Beautiful temple throughout. The jewel is the history, which is what Savannah is all about. Impressive letters of support from Presidents 1-44.

The last thing I thought I'd find in Savannah was a temple, but it was one of the first things that came up on my TripAdvisor search so I knew I had to visit. It is absolutely beautiful, with an extremely interesting history of the...More
