Nice overview.... 24 Mar. 2008
By MojoSpeed - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just returned from Savannah, and took this guide along. It fits very nicely into a back pocket or purse. It provided a great overview of the area with maps and good descriptions of many of the restaurants (including dividing them into price ranges).

The author couldn't have been more spot-on in describing one River St. bar (hint: they specialize in frozen drinks), and the description made my wife and I laugh out loud.

We followed one of the mapped out walking tours described in the book and it made for a wonderful Saturday afternoon. Given its portability, it can't cover every restaurant, bar or shop, but if you cross-reference what the author recommends against others' opinions-, (Savannah's alternative news weekly), and, you'll find many of the same restaurants listed, with similar descriptions.

Purchase the book in advance of making your lodging reservations, as there are a number of bed and breakfasts listed, as well as many hotels.

Yes, there are many references to the book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," but given how much it's helped tourism in the area and how many people want to see the places described in that book, the author is just giving the people what they want. I enjoyed the references: I wanted a guide that covered those locations, but not one that focused solely on "The Book" (as it's known to many locals), and this guide provided a nice compromise.

The only drawback I found is that it doesn't list as many restaurants as I'd have liked, but again, given the space limitations, it couldn't. As you walk the streets, you'll stumble across some great little places on your own, and that's half the fun of "exploring" the town.

I consider the guide to be money well spent.

Recently did a girls trip - the guide was very helpful. We planned lots of our trip prior to our arrival - restaurant suggestions were particularly helpful.

Be very careful!!! 25 Oct. 2011
By Ron Rueve - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Beware! The Kindle edition has a copyright date of 2005. The print edition is copyrighted 2011. There is a huge difference and the folks who purchase the Kindle edition get old information. Not worth the cost!

Very helpful 26 Jun. 2006

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives a nice review of Savannah, from history, to where to stay, what do do, where to eat. It's very compact and will be easy for us to carry along on our trip next week to Savannah.

Kindle version: no color and no photos 3 April 2012
By St. Ferret - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Kindle version of this guidebook is as ugly as mud. While a regular book is expected to have plain text, a travel guide needs photos and color to be of any interest. This version is plain, and I do mean plain, like a homemade pamphlet. The image on the buy page showing the beautiful cover does not apply to the Kindle version. If straight text is what you want, this will be fine. Otherwise, you'll need the print version.
