Best price especially if you pick up Savannah Scene or go online for coupons. Very informative and enjoyable. The tour guide gives you information on new restaurants thru-out the tour.

I compare it to Charleston with lots of history and pleasant atmosphere! Nicknamed "Slowvannah", it's just southern charm with delicious food and drinks everywhere. They do not allow vendors or vagrants to harass tourists, so you can feel free to walk and safely enjoy the city.

I love Savannah. My boyfriend and I go at least twice a year. The Food, the sights, & the people are all friendly. We stay at the Hyatt every time we visit and the votes of the river are amazing. If the weather permits rent a bike and explore. The bike fees are chesp. $5 bucks for 24hrs. Not bad.... More

Fabulous houses and squares to explore throughout historic Savannah. Wear your walking shoes or take the bus tour and hop on and off.

We go into the Savannah area around 6 times a year with groups. The Historic District is beautiful and I see something different each time. I recommend photographers using the DOT bikes for rent ($5/24 hr) at City Market next to the fountains at Ellis Square. Trolley Tours are nice for information, but guide books are available for purchase at... More

What's not to like about the Savannah Historic District?? Gorgeous neighborhoods, cobblestone streets, beautiful landscapes and being surrounded by the majestic Live Oaks with their Spanish Moss. Loved this area of Savannah! The projects aren't too far away but we felt very safe.

The River Street area of Savannah is a restored warehouse district with great seafood restaurants, awesome candy stores, and novelty shops. There is always something going on along the water front. On this trip we stumbled on a Bacon Festival - BONUS!!! This is one town that is worth a carriage ride or ghost tour through the historic district. I... More

Perfect for a morning, day, or evening walk! The historic area and Bay Streets are fun to walk around and see. So much history in this town and so much great food, etc., you will pass!

For history and architect lovers this is the place to be. There is so much to see, walking is best, or a carriage ride. There are many trolley on off tours for an overview. Then walk and see as much as you can. When you are on the tour Notate what you want to go back to later. There are... More
