We really enjoyed this tour. Overview of a lot of history. We got to see some places we hadn't read about. Only complaint is we had to wait a 3rd trolley as the first 2 were full... go before noon.

This tour is great! One price and you can ride all day. The trolleys stop every 15 minutes throughout the city. You can hop on and off as often as you like. I took the tour a little at a time all day Sunday. I had several great drivers/guides. I learned a lot and all the drivers had something a... More

This was a great way to see the main highlights of historical Savannah. We didn't do the on-and-off option but stayed on for the entire an hour and half. This is a good option in the sweltering heat during Labor Day. Even though the trolley is NOT air conditioned, there was still a breeze through the open air windows. The... More

This was a good way to see and learn about historic Savannah. We took three different trolleys and two out of three drivers were very interesting. One of them you could not hear and there were a lot of gaps in the ride where the others offered all sorts of interesting facts. The costume actors, added some extra interest to... More

The commercial and the actual tour are quite different things. We took the tour on Sunday August 17 and only had one actor interact during our tour. I realize that you're not going to end up with every character interacting with every tour, but when your ad shows a dozen characters, only seeing one is a huge letdown. We had... More

We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the tour. We strive to provide at least two characters per tour. There are typically four or five characters interspersed throughout the historic district throughout the day. Each tour typically sees 2 characters. WE are sorry that you only saw one. Perhaps you toured during on of the character... More

Really went into details about the happenings in and around Savannah. The 1 1/2 hour tour was really informative and we saw all... More

The price is similar to others, but go for the hop on -hop off. We sat through the whole tour first and that lasted over an hour, the we got off and on the rest of the tour. Once we became familiarized with the surroundings, we spent the next two days sightseeing on our own. Ask for Tammy, the Tennessee... More
