Heather – United States –
Great tour based on the book and movie!!! My mom and I had a wonderful afternoon strolling the street of Savannah reliving one of our favorite books (and movies). We enjoyed all the juicy tidbits that we couldn't possibly have known. It was timed very well and we were given a break in the middle. I think I smiled through the whole thing, learning about all the eccentric characters that Martin brought back to life for us!
