We took the 90 minute tour with Wendy. This worked great for our group since it was a rainy day and we didn't want to hop off. We leaned so much and laughed a lot....Wendy was knowledgeable and funny. However, I would have preferred if the "actors" just narrated their little bits of historical information as themselves rather than trying... More

The only problem I saw was that the trolley broke down and we had to wait a little for the next one. But the people were great and very helpful. Steel is a charm.

We toured Savannah on the first leg of our trip on March 8 and 9th. I booked the Old Savannah Tour on line for the hop on and off tour. Dave was our guide. We even got off at River Street and got on and Dave was again our driver. We had a blast in Savannah. Look forward to going... More

Each driver does their own research which makes each of the guides "unique". LOVED at several stops "Characters" boarded the trolly for some additional history. Savannah is steeped in history, what a fun way to get a crash course in the cities history! Don't miss this tour! It is the only tour that is locally owned and operated, which gives... More

We did 2 tours. We did the 1.5 hour tour around town on the hop-on/hop-off trolley. We intended to use the trolley later to get around but the historic district is actually quite walkable. Our guide was funny and informative In the evening we took the haunted trolley/pirate house tour. We had another good guide. He told some of the... More

This is the only way to see Savannah. I whole heartedly recommend taking the "on and off" tour. Ride around the whole route the first time and pick out what you want to see. Then on the second round, hop off and see your favorite and get back on to go to the next one. The drivers are especially knowledgeable... More

My friend and I only had part of one day to visit Savannah, so we paid $27 each for the 90-minute tour. It allows you to get off and on at any trolley stop all day until 4:30. We opted to ride almost the whole circuit, getting off at stop 12 which was the riverfront. There, we had a delicious... More

You won't get photo opps. of most of what you pass by but you will get an overview of the history of Savannah and there is lots of it. We suggest you do the route then get off and walk everywhere you want to get a photo. Historic Savannah is easy to walk in terms of area. The cobblestones can... More
