On a Liberty Encounters tour you will stroll through the historic squares and be immersed in Colonial Savannah's rich and fascinating history.
Beginning with a call on the drum, the tour guide, dressed as a Colonial Savannah militiaman, instantly captivated us with his talents and recount of historical events in Georgia before and during the Revolutionary War. He was polite, enthusiastic, and engaging from beginning to end, encouraging questions and pictures from his guests. My children were thrilled to be involved throughout the tour when the guide gave his guests the opportunity to use historic props and flags. They listened and answered questions and were especially excited when we re enacted a local historical battle from the Revolutionary War! We learned so much about the Georgia colony and enjoyed stopping at the statues and monuments and now understand their significance.
Savannah is beautiful, and since we went on the Liberty Encounters Colonial Savannah tour, we now feel like we have truly met this historic town. A 90 minute tour that easily draws you in and whisks you back in time. History comes alive! Thank you. My family enjoyed very much.

To the call of the drum and the waving of the flag, we gathered in Johnson Square. Aaron involved participants from the youngest to the eldest as he vividly painted a picture of Savannah’s Colonial life and its impact on the Natives. Squares grew into life in the City of Savannah. One participant was crowned “King George” who then chose Parliament. The impact of the Sugar and Stamp Acts were made personal with humor and thought-provoking questions. Are you a Patriot, and what is it worth to you?

Stories of people and events were illuminated at the sundial, and we sang the chorus of a rallying song as we marched to Reynolds Square. At the statue of John Wesley, we learned of the Great Awakening and how it led to the Declaration of Independence. As those precious words rang out, we were reminded that our freedom came with a price.

We relived the Battle of the Rice Boats and the heroism of James Jackson. At Oglethorpe Square, we took part in successful battle formations and tactics. We paused at Colonial Park Cemetery and remembered those who sacrificed for our faith, virtue, and freedom. Madison Square was hallowed ground that witnessed fighting in Savannah during the American Revolution. A statue told the story of the gallant Sergeant Jasper, who risked his life saving a flag and perished.

As 90 minutes flew by, we were immersed in adventures in history. This is a highly recommended, compelling tour for all ages.
