I have been to Savannah at least six times and have probably done 3 or 4 different types of tours, and Steve's historical haunted tour was the best one by far. First, he is a 4th generation resident of Savannah, and his great-grandfather planted many of the live oaks you see around the squares, so this is a man not... More

Steve was awesome. He is so knowledgeable and makes the tour so interesting and fun. I highly recommend booking a tour with him. We just went one of his historic tours and his knowledge of the history and the area is incredible.. I would love to go on all his tours eventually.

Steve Ellis is amazing…a walking encyclopedia of Savannah history and culture. He is a lifelong Savannahan who is passionate about his city. We only had a day and a half in Savannah and wanted to get a fast overview of the city and its history…Check! You will get far more than your money’s worth from Steve-both in time and quality....

We had never been to Savannah, but after one 2hour and fifteen minute walking tour with Steve, we felt as though we had truly arrived. Steve is part of the fabric of this city, and not only does he know all there is to know about it, but he knows just how to deliver it to a new arrival. Most... More

He grew up here as did his ancestors so he really knew his stuff. He also directed us to some great restaurants for the balance of our trip. We'll definitely... More

I fell in love with Savannah in the early 1980s when I lived in Orlando. I made an annual Spring trek till I moved to Houston in th 1990s. The delightful and incredibly informative tour with Steve today made me fall in love with this charming city all over again!

This was our first night in Savannah, and we decided the best way to see things in the city was to get a little tour with someone who knew the city well. Our guide is a fourth-generation Savannah native, and truly loved his city. You could hear the pride in his voice as he spoke of the colorful history. This... More

We had a sibling vacation in Savannah because none of us had ever visited the city. Six of us hired Steve Ellis to take us on a walking tour "King Cotton, Slavery, and the Civil War". We also hired him to give us a ghost tour. He is very informative and interesting. His stories and knowledge make the Savannah of... More

I recently went on a ghost tour led by Steve. Oh. My. God. I really did not expect to get freaked out, just thought it would be a fun historical tour that focused on the undead history of Savannah (which is was as well), but I was shocked to see a very unexplainable mist of average human height nearly at...
