מה נעשה

A tour completely unlike any other area excursion, it’s like eavesdropping on a brazenly candid late-night conversation where a close friend shares risqué, strange-but-true private anecdotes. It celebrates and memorializes the unique –and sometimes bizarre– people, places and things which made the city so infamously freaky in the 1970s through 1990s – most of which are forgotten or simply never known.

Unlike virtually all Savannah’s history tours, which focus on events and figures from the 1700s and 1800s (via info derived from books), these stories are all fewer than three degrees of personal separation from your guide. In fact, most happened right in front of him! The rest were shared with him by trusted friends. No one else has access or rights to these memories.

These unvarnished, raw tales include criminal acts, sexual depravity, drug use, celebrity sightings, bizarre deaths and foolish behavior - along with background on the city’s time-honored reputation as a hub of the Deep South’s LGBTQ community, and heartfelt personal recollections of some of the most beloved, gloriously oddball Savannah characters of the past 40 years.

Near the end of the tour, we'll stop at a bona fide legendary dive bar* to use the restroom and/or purchase cold beverages to walk with.

* In accordance with Savannah law, only guests 21+ may enter the bar.

For 34 years, I’ve lived in Savannah’s Historic Landmark District as something of a local fixture – earning praise as a professional musician, award-winning journalist, community advocate and fringe cinema curator. I pen two popular weekly columns for Savannah’s daily and alt.weekly papers and provide commentary on Georgia Public Radio.

Born in the Appalachian Mountains near the famed International Storytelling Center, I learned the importance of preserving hidden culture for posterity through the “oral tradition” – crafting and delivering compelling tales. My gift for improvisational speaking, coupled with a self-deprecating sense of humor make me an ideal guide for this intimate, “Raw and Uncensored” Walking Tour for open-minded adults who appreciate getting the “inside scoop” on salacious matters which are usually swept under the rug

The 2.5 hour tour of several blocks begins in Monterey Square and includes portions of Bull, Taylor, Jones, Charlton, Drayton, and Liberty Streets and Lanes. It covers private homes, sites of iconic businesses (many of which are no longer there) and public spaces - including a rest and libations stop at the oldest operating (and most gloriously funky) dive bar in Savannah. The tour features detailed, in-depth storytelling PACKED with secrets.

This was the most entertaining tour I’ve ever had the privilege of taking. Jim is a fantastic storyteller - smart, insightful, informative and incredibly funny. We’d highly recommend his tour to anyone heading to Savannah!

Fun stories from a unique perspective. Beautiful scenery. I'm not terribly interested in typical "history", so being able to hear a few local stories suited me great. We even politely brought along some adult beverages, which Jim didn't seem to mind at all! Just be sure to be prepared for any weather, which seems like a no-brainer... It became more windy than we realized it would be and we were chilly, but that certainly had nothing to do with Jim! ;P

Jim is a fabulous story teller who has a wealth of knowledge about the history of Savannah. We loved hearing about how this beautiful city evolved from the 1980’s to where it is now. Depending on where you walk during this tour Jim is able to connect specific buildings/homes/streets to many unique & hilarious stories about the people of Savannah’s past that you will never hear on any other tour. We will definitely do this tour again!

דברים שחשוב לדעת

מדיניות ביטולים

ניתן לבטל השתתפות בכל חוויה ולקבל החזר כספי מלא עד 24 שעות אחרי הרכישה או לפחות 7 ימים לפני תחילתה.

דרישות לאורחים

החוויה מתאימה ל-10 אורחים לכל היותר, מגיל 18 ומעלה.

טיפים נוספים

Wear comfortable walking shoes and clothing appropriate for the temperature and humidity. Be aware it will be approximately 70 minutes before we make a restroom stop. Bring ID for entry into bar. :)

מה צריך להביא

Wearing a Face Mask at all times during the tour is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED, as while your guide will make efforts to maintain a safe distance from all guests, walking and talking in a group carries an INHERENT RISK of exposure to the Coronavirus, and we'd like

An umbrella (only if you prefer). Brief, light rain showers are not unheard of in Savannah -- and unless it's a torrential thunderstorm, we tour rain or shine!
