"Every person living in America should hear the emotional story that Fritz relays. We are still reflecting on how much this tour moved us 4 months afterward." -- Corey C., Seattle
Walking you through six of Savannah's most historic squares, Savannahian Fritz Rumpel tells you the amazing story of how freedom through faith triumphed over slavery and presented to America the idea of "40 acres and a mule" for 4 million freed people. Along the way, you'll learn about such local heroes as Andrew Bryan, Susie King Taylor and Garrison Frazier, and get a new take on such better-known historical figures as William T. Sherman, Eli Whitney and James Edward Oglethorpe.
This tour is designed for those who want to take a deeper dive into Savannah's history from its founding in 1733 to the end of the Civil War in 1865. So that you can get the full benefit of this two-hour walk, Fritz gives you a private tour, where YOU set the day and time--and ask all the questions you want.
40 Acres and a Mule Tour was chosen one of the "Ten Best Tours of Savannah" by Conde Nast Traveler magazine.
