This was our first visit to Savannah, and after reading reviews of all the tour companies I decided to purchase (online at a discount) a two day hop on/off with Old Savannah Tours. I couldn't be happier! We arrived on a rainy afternoon so the first day we remained on the trolley for the full tour. Despite the weather our... More

Had a very entertaining and informative tour. Jeff was great and kept our attention. Have a lot of information. Was not a canned speech. Had two costumed characters step into bus to share a story: a pirate at Pirates House and "the waving girl" at riverfront.

Forrest has always had his chocolates and offered them, was Forrest head to toe with running off. They insisted we return again and yea there he was. Don't change Forrest... More

We arrived in Savannah by car and had a couple hours to kill before we could check in to our hotel so the four of us decided to take this tour. We opted not to do the Hop On Hop Off but just sit and enjoy the tour. Well, if you are lucky enough to get Omer as your guide... More

We took the tour as a part of our cruise from Harbour Town, Hilton Head Island. Sarah, our tour guide did an excellent job of pointing out all the points of interest and giving a little bit of the history behind each area. The character actors that occasionally jumped on board provided an interesting description of the area where we... More

When you visit Savannah, buy a tour bus ticket. Your feet will thank you! It is the best way to see the sites. Our family has visited Savannah several times in the last few years. We have tried different tour lines and Old Savannah Tours is our favorite. The guy named Hollywood is great! Very friendly and informative drivers. Very... More

Our tour guide, Julie, was knowledgeable, projected well, and was made the each POI interesting, fun, and enjoyable. From time to time, some Savanna related character (e.g., Forest Gump in costume) would jump on board on entertain or provide a capsule bio. Highly recommended!

Took the entire tour the first go around to see the whole city and then come back to the places mentioned that we thought we would enjoy. Then we would get off and on at the different locations. Never had to wait long for the next bus. At some stops there were actors that got on-board and explained some of... More
