“Could Not Have Been a More Enjoyable Tour”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

We took the Antebellum walking tour with Anthony Higgins, and were lucky enough to book our tour on an off-day, allowing us to get an even more personalized tour of Savannah due to the smaller crowds. Over the course of nearly two hours, we were told stories and shown sights for which none of the bus tours bothered stopping. As the tour went on, he even began tailoring the tour to the things that interested us the most. It never felt rushed, and never took on the sheen of the polished, rehearsed tour guides that we saw all over the city. With a back story ready for nearly every question we asked, this tour was quite honestly the high-point of our first trip to Savannah. We have taken a good deal of tours in a number of other cities, and could not have been happier with Sellers and Higgins.

“Thoroughly enjoyed this smaller group tour with unusual insight to Savannah's history! Ann Marie R.”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

Phil did a fantastic job walking us through this beautiful city. Pointed out many architectical designs of buildings & homes. Told us some amazing stories about the early settlers that sparked my interest to learn more about these people. Bring your walking shoes, notebook and pen. You don't want to forget some of the people and events that shaped this extraordinary city.

“Delightfully Quirky”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

With pith helmet and walking stick our guide squired us around Savannah's Historic District
filling us in with little known but fascinatingly quirky tales of Savannah's colorful past. While we watched larger walking tours go by, we enjoyed our private tour and the opportunity to ask questions. Our guide was extremely well versed and knew lots of stories that are not typically told. A nice change from the typical trolley tours.

“Exceptional Tour”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

Sellers & Higgins walking Tours have three walking tours they do. The Antebellum Tour a Backstory Tour or The Women of Savannah. We went on the Women of Savannah and the Antebellum Tour.
Phil Sellers was our tour guide, this guy is a walking encyclopedia with a dash of humor. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent with Phil and would highly recommend this tour company you won't be disappointed.

“Most unique tour I've ever been on”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

I've been on several Savannah history tours since I moved here over a year ago, and this one was definitely the most interesting. Unlike most other history tours, Phil didn't overload us with a bunch of (relatively) unimportant dates and names that we'd forget the minute we walked away. Instead, the "Backstory Tour" was comprised of interesting historical anecdotes, and fun little stories that I had never heard before. It was the kind of information that you retain, and not just something to entertain you for an hour that you'll completely forget about. I would recommend this tour to everyone- families, couples, girl scout troupes, whoever. It was a blast, and we can't wait to take the "Antebellum Tour" next time.
