We had one day to see Savannah and the Old Savannah Tours trolley was the best way to do it. Our tour guide, Tammy, was fantastic! She made us feel welcome immediately and was very fun and knowledgeable. My 11 year old son really enjoyed the tour and felt it was worthwhile. My 14 year old took lots of photos... More

We used OST our first day in Savannah. We stayed on the "bus" for the entire loop first time around to get an overview. Second time around we got on and off at various locations. The guides/drivers were excellent - especially "Hollywood". Don't forget to tip!

This was like all of the trolley tours in town but I booked it because its was a little cheaper than the others. Our guide, Tammy, was fabulous!! She personalized the tour and was animated and informative. We even had her for the ghost tour that night. The one problem with the ghost tour was that they had overbooked and... More

This was my 7th historical tour of Savannah, GA with Old Savannah Tours. It was BY FAR the best. Our guide was HOLLYWOOD, and he was enthusiastic, informative, and more engaging than any guide I've experienced. I learned more about the history of Savannah on this tour than I ever have. We especially enjoyed the element of humor he shared... More

The trolley picked us up at the hotel and provided a narrated riding tour of the city. Our driver and tour guide was great. Hollywood put on a fun review of the city's history. We enjoyed his humor and attempt to turn northerners into southerners. It's interesting that Oglethorpe, who founded the city, prohibited liquor, lawyers, and slavery in the... More

Great idea to see the city and hear about each square (22 in total). Seats were comfortable (for those of us with bigger bottoms!) and the on and off stations were placed in areas of easy access. We went on this tour on a Monday and the buses stop pick-ups by 5:00pm. Really wished they had a longer day of... More

If you really want to know about Savannah, I would highly suggest this tour. It is part of the Old Savannah Tours, but it is the Savannah Experience Tour. It is truly comprenhensive. The guide/driver of the small bus is truly outstanding, and has a world of knowledge of the city. I would NOT suggest it for small children or... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the Old Savannah Trolley Tour yesterday on our short trip to Savannah. We learned and laughed a LOT! Our tour guide, "Hollywood" entertained us the whole 100 minutes, mixing his good humor with the fascinating history of downtown Savannah.

A friend and I visited Savannah this summer, and what a delight it was! Savannah is an absolutely beautiful city with a rich and fascinating history and incredibly friendly people. We were only there for 3 days, so wanted to see as much as we could in as easy and relaxed a manner as possible, and the Land and Sea... More
