About

Join us on an unforgettable ride through the fascinating history of African Americans from slavery to freedom during the Antebellum era (1748-1864) along Savannah's beautiful coast led by a true Master Gullah Geechee Truth-Teller, "Sistah Patt".
Hop on our comfortable Gray Line vehicle and let us take you on a mesmerizing journey, exploring iconic sights like River Street, Factor's Walk and Johnson Square. Discover the rich history of the West African tribes who were forced into slavery in Savannah, working tirelessly to construct the warehouses along River Street. Hear their journey to freedom and how their culture is still present in today's local community.
The riding tour begins at 10:30am and will last about 1 hour before stopping at the Susie King Taylor Center for Jubilee for a mouthwatering experience of authentic Gullah Geechee foodways and story telling. Afterwards, we will transport you back to the tour starting point at about 1:00pm.
