Portrait of a City Walking Tour
Saturdays 11am, October to May
Beginning in Forsyth Park, one of the earliest public parks in America, stories about land and land use will form the backdrop to this leisurely two-hour stroll through some of the most beautiful squares, gardens, and alleys in Savannah. Structured, not scripted, Dr Blackwood paints a vivid picture of the people, monuments, and edifices that bore witness to the past three hundred years, interweaving an expansive global narrative about utopic visions, innovation and industriousness, and the will of the human spirit. As part of this unique experience, we will peek inside an historic mansion with a curious collection of local treasures, and sample indigenous Yaupon tea, taking us full circle to stories of the earliest inhabitants and pre-colonial landscape. $50 per person inclusive, eight guests or less.

Women of Savannah Walking Tour
This limited-offer 1.5 hour, female-focused walk through the cityscape of Savannah celebrates the fascinating tales of women in this town - both familiar and new. Special guest historian, Dr. Lizzie Rogers, will join Dr. Nicole Blackwood as they curate a tour experience centered on women’s voices and leadership. Together we'll explore the strong women who both guarded and crafted the city in various ways, and who often defied expectations through their wit, ingenuity, and courage. Stories of intrigue, drama, and heroism will be grounded in scholarly research and conceived as a fun conversation between friends. This tour will make you both laugh and cry, and leave you rethinking the way women contributed to the fabric of this beautiful city and beyond. And though we focus on female stories, all are welcome! Please check back for future dates, or contact us for a private group experience.
