I was lucky enough to ride with tammy as my guide on this tour. The lady is hilarious!! Everyone on board had fun and no one wanted to get off. The entire bus continued back to the beginning or the penultimate stop because she was so humorous. She fitted in history with humour and jokes and gave me a wonderful... More

With only one day to see Savannah, what does one do? A 90-minute trolley tour, of course! We did a double hop-on-hop-off loop which started at the Savannah Visitors Center and covered 15 more stops: Savannah Theatre/Chippewa Square, Sorrel Weed House, Forsyth Park, St. John Cathedral, The Pirates House, Washington Square, Owens Thomas House, Juliette Gordon Low Home, City Market,...

So much fun! This was something very out of "our box". Fun and interesting. We toured some of the historic district and Pirate House and Sorel-Weed house. I lost track of time but I think it took around 1.5-2 hours. Our driver was Kathleen. She was sarcastic and hilarious.

The tour company provided a free shuttle service to and from our downtown B&B location, all I had to do was call 10-15 minutes ahead of time. We were dropped off at in the parking lot of the Savannah Visitor's Center, next door to SCAD. If you want to visit either of these, I'd suggest taking the shuttle, touring these... More

Excellent choice for a tour company. The driver was very knowledgeable and provided non-stop historical commentary throughout the tour - really learned a lot about the history of the city. No A/C as the tour bus is open window, but covered and way better than walking. Great way to get your bearings of the city before walking around. Well worth... More

The tour was interesting however it went too fast. Driver would indicate a certain site was a good photo opportunity but he didn't slow down enough to take a photo. If we had known this was going to happen, we would have gotten off, took our photos and caught the next bus. We were on the white ones. When we... More

Loved experiencing Savannah via Old Savannah Tours. Our driver ".Jersey" was very well-versed. He seemed to enjoy his job and put his passengers at ease. We thoroughly enjoyed the stop at Mrs. Wilkes and the southern belle who delighted us with her spiel. That said, the character at The Pirate House was totally creepy and not in a good way.... More

This was our second year with Old Savannah because the first was such fun. Loved the characters who got on the trolley and shared their stories. Drivers Arthur, Donny and Chris were so interesting, funny and engaging. Great to sit through the whole ride then stay for some off and on time. We'll be back!
