  • “I learned about Erin’s website and her ebook from the honest advice she regularly provides in the TripAdvisor forum about important topics like safety issues in Savannah. I appreciate that she isn’t afraid to tell it like it is and is very clear about what you should and shouldn’t do to keep safe when planning a trip. She doesn’t sugar-coat things for the sake of promoting tourism, and I find her honesty refreshing.”

Reading this book made me feel like I was talking to my best friend who knew all the local secrets, hidden away places, and tourist spots worth exploring. I would highly recommend this ebook.”
