Welcome...come wander like a local with us

I am so glad to have you here and am delighted to share who we are and what we’re about. I am Jessica Marie, also known as Savannah Gigi. I’ve been a tour guide in Savannah for 10+ years and absolutely love every minute of giving tours. I am so grateful that I am able to make my living as a storyteller.

I decided to pursue my dream of owning a walking tour company after many long inspiring conversations with my mother Marie and my grandmother Marie. You see, I was raised by two generations of strong women, who believed that nothing was impossible. As my mama always says, "If you can envision it, you can create it."


Preserving Savannah one tour at a time

I fell in love with Savannah, its history, charm and culture. I own a home here, have two children and deep roots in this community. I believe in giving back to a city that has given me so much. I greatly admire the eccentric and bohemian, but true southern lady Anna C. Hunter who during the 1950’s banded together to form the “Seven Ladies” who later began the Historic Savannah Foundation. Without their efforts, Savannah was in danger of forever losing its historical buildings and landmarks. Savannah Gigi’s Walking Tours embodies not only the generations of strong women who raised us, but those inspiring activists who helped pave the way for Savannah to be the historic treasure it is today.


My company’s mission is to support preservation efforts
and give back to our community, so you and future generations
can experience the beauty of our hostess city


A premier touring company begins with great guides

During my 10+ years of conducting carriage tours, walking tours and managing a haunted ghost tour company, I developed strong ideas about what a truly great touring experience should be for our visitors. I firmly believe that It starts with the right people. In order to be a tour guide at Savannah Gigi Waking Tours, I require they be certified by the Savannah Tourism Leadership Council. Every guide is chosen for their passion and storytelling ability, with their own special charm making your tour unique. Our requirements and training program ensures historical accuracy resulting in a superior tour experience for you.

A born and bred Georgia girl, Courtney moved from north Georgia to Savannah in 2007 and was chosen for her lively personality and fun demeanor. Her first visit to the hostess city was at the age of twelve with her Girl Scout troop. She instantly fell in love with its history and charm. In her spare time, she enjoys exploring Savannah with her two daughters and instilling the same appreciation of history and architecture of our beautiful city. Courtney's favorite building is an 1882 historic bed and breakfast the Kehoe House which was built as a labor of love built by William Kehoe for his wife and ten children. To hear the full story of this exquisite home, join us on one of our tours!


Jackie has called Savannah home since the 1990's, she has been a tour guide since 2004. She has a witty personality and enjoys connecting with the diverse group of people who take her tours.

what they're saying about us

Brianna P.

Savannah, GA

I went on a pub tour with Jessica. I'm a Savannah local with out of town family. I have been on a lot of tours that were nowhere near as fun and historically accurate as Jessica's. My husband and I wanted to take a haunted pub crawl. We had an absolute blast! We can't wait to take each tour she offers, especially the spooky story and scavenger hunt with our two boys. We LOVE Savannah Gigi's!

Jessica did a fantastic job on the kid tour!!!
My 5-year- old son was so interested and loved the spooky scavenger hunt!
I highly recommend it.

My wife is from Australia and wanted to experience a bit of history in the south.  We heard about Savannah Walking Tours and Jessica and opted for the Historical Stories tour.  What an incredible experience for both of us.  Jessica captivated us with her stories and her knowledge of Savannah History.  Thank YOU.  Can't wait to come back for your Darker side Tour.

Jessica is my favorite tour guide in the city! She knows the history so well and is an excellent story teller. She's so passionate about what she does and it's evident during her tours. You won't have a more fun experience in Savannah! Highly recommend again and again and again!

Gigi Walking Tours is the only tour company to use while visiting Savannah! Jessica is my favorite tour guide of all time; not only was she professional and personable, but her unique sense of humor added a very special pizzazz to the tour! It was the highlight of my trip! I couldn't recommend Gigi Walking Tours more!!

I was in town for a wedding, and the bride and groom booked an evening ghost pub crawl with Jessica. She was AWESOME! The tour was super informative, funny, and Jessica managed to herd all the excited inebriated adults from place to place like a professional cat wrangler! The stops were all places I would have loved to linger and the drinks were great! 

Christina H.

Jessica is a very knowledgeable tour guide. In addition, she is funny, witty and makes sure all participants of the tour have a great experience. I highly recommend any of her tours. Local or tourist...definitely worth checking out.
