Very helpful friendly staff. Free maps for walking tours and free parking if you wish to take the trolley.The trolleys pour in and out of the visitors center every 5-15 min (so it seemed). There is a giftshop and restrooms.

They have everything and anything you may want to know, or go within Savannah. Great staff to teach you and answer any questions you may have! Also, they make wonderful recommendations on places to see while in town. Lets also not forget clean bathrooms!! Those are a hot commodity in Savannah!

Well, by golly, we did read the tripadvisor reviews and we did stop here first thing in the morning to visit the visitors center and to book our trolley tour on Oldtown Trolley Tours (located just outside, in the parking lot). The center has a small gift shop, where we purchased some famous Savannah cookies, the names of which I... More

The parking in Savannah is getting better, but this is still your best bet. It is a gated surface lot that is at their beautifully restored train station. Park here and then tour the visitors center and get maps, sign up for tours or just start walking the city. The visitors center has a train car that serves meals and... More

My friend and I were treated cordially and the staff took a great interest in hearing about where we were from and gave us tips on where to go and how to get there and which tours were best in value and in history telling. The shops were full of souvenirs, from cups, to spoons, to pictures and postcards. I... More

Before you get started on your Savannah adventure, stop by this center. Knowledgable welcoming staff, city maps, restrooms, and a gift shop.

Good location to begin your tour of Savannah. Multiple trolley tours leave from here and provide excellent overviews of the city. Clean restrooms, friendly staff and the museum is nice too.

THIS location is the one you want. Do not be fooled, as we were, by the smaller "welcome center" on the Rt 25 connector after you come off the bridge (that turns into Oglethorpe St.) That one is mainly a tour bus ticket center. Go 2 blocks past that one, turn right on Martin Luther King Blvd, go 2 blocks... More

I recommend this as the starting point to visiting Savannah. Lots of good information, helpful staff, clean washrooms. The visitor center is also a stop on the DOT circuit, Savannah's free tourist shuttle service. The exhibit in the museum are interesting and worth checking out, and the building itself is spectacular. Easy to walk from here to various attractions, under... More
