About Us


Savannah native and professional tour guide, Harriet Meyerhoff, earned a BS Ed degree in college and taught for many years before forming her own business, Personalized Tours of Savannah. This independent company has been touring visitors for over a decade, focusing on history, architecture, movie sites, cultural/ethnic, gardens and your special interests.

She and her husband were pioneers in the restoration movement by moving into the Historic District and restoring a home when Savannah was still a sleepy town with few tourists in the 1970s.

In addition to her touring, she has been an active volunteer in archival work at The Georgia Historical Society since 1994. Her love and appreciation for Savannah's history and preservation shows in her enthusiasm with each tour. Let Personalized Tours of Savannah customize an informative and upscale tour for you or a group by sedan, leisurely stroll or "step-on" service. Tours are available daily and even Christmas Day by reservation. Ask about special tour times to accommodate your travel needs, or physical limitations.
