Savvy Savannah Tours founders Rebecca King and Cyndie Parmerter pinpointed a problem with local tours: guests’ lack of connection to the content. Determined to bridge the gap between guides’ narratives and visitors’ imaginations without connecting their brains via electrodes, they designed a new brand of walking tour that sometimes incorporates interactive technology. The Scenes of Savannah Past guides are outfitted with iPads that display retro pictures of Savannah as they pass the locales in modern day. But other tours, such as the culinary Eat it and Like it or beer-tasting Savannah Suds, let the southern flavor of the city speak for itself.
