Historical walking tours provide outdoor exercise, unlike a mall walking tour, which mostly consist of one-sided conversations with the arcade’s claw game. Gain enlightenment more enjoyably with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a ticket to the Savannah Saunter walking tour of downtown from SeeSavannah Tours (a $20 value).

SeeSavannah Tours’ knowledgeable guides unveil hidden gardens, intricate ironwork, and highlights of the Hostess City’s history to bi-peds of all ages during a leisurely Savannah Saunter tour. As groups stroll past historic homes, many adorned in distinctive ironwork and built as early as the Colonial era, expert guides enlighten them on the buildings' symbiotic relationship with local vegetation and their destructive relationship with wrecking balls. Guests will also glimpse the Mercer mansion, explore the squares of Bull Street, and discover lush gardens tucked out of sight by their designers. The tour route highlights founder James Edward Oglethorpe’s egalitarian plan for the city as well as contemporary efforts to preserve the past in canning jars. SeeSavannah channels $1 from the price of each tour to the City Preservation Fund.
