We were recently in Savannah Ga and picked this hop on/hop off bus tour and it was terrific. We had a two day pass and one of the days our guide was called Hollywood. He was great! 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

This was our first trip to Savannah so wanted to do a tour. The tour consists of 16 stops and takes an hour and a half to make it through all the stops. We rode the entire route, and had difficulty hearing the driver so missed a lot of information. Eventually, we moved to the front of the bus as... More

We booked the tour by phone, but there were many just walking up and boarding. Our guide was very knowledgable and there were actors that got on and explained life and times to our group. They were dressed in the time period they were portraying. This really added go our tour. I would recommend the tour as an overview of... More

What a fantastic tour! Our tour guide/driver, Dave, was excellent - funny, knowledgeable, and courteous. The tour includes stops where actors dressed up as certain historical characters get on and tell a little about Savannah when they lived there. The tour I was on was visited by a Savannah youth who was a Union sympathizer and was accidentally shot by... More

Our driver Dennis was mature informative but not silly. It was great you can get off and on at interesting sites. The activity folk were all very personable and helpful. Savannah is the perfect city for this tour. Considering it is August the open sides were comfortable with sea breezes. I am going to advise all of the wonderful tour.

We had a great time learning the historic facts presented on this trolley. The on/off feature allows you to explore at your leisure...and we spent 2days doing just that. We met Forrest Gump, 2 civil war soldiers, a former slave and a pirate! History come to life! Knowledgeable drivers who seem to enjoy their jobs!
