Like most things in life, it depends who you talk to. We walked in the visitors center and encountered two women eager to help us make the most of our Savannah visit. They asked about our preferences and recommended restaurants, museums, they had a variety of brochures for walking and ghost tours, there was even a small gift shop across... More

We thought that was all there was until we dug a little deeper. The guy sitting at the concession center was unfriendly and not helpful. It's not marked well that visitor center is on the upper level. Joel, (previously from Chicago) was very congenial and informative about Savannah. Wish we had longer to talk with him. Have to pay to... More

Nothing remarkable. NOT free parking. Staff is friendly. Expensive gift shop. Little snack area sells the worst tasting hot chocolate I have ever had.

We may have entered the building by the wrong door to get the most help. The lower level is not really the visitor center, I think, and the young lady at the desk was definitely unhelpful. I was a bit off balance because of that, and maybe not prepared to think highly of the rest of the center. There were... More

I was asking for help on what places to visit at this city, if I had only a shot time here. People at information desk enthusiastically recommended a local commercial tourist product, instead. I had to bring his very long speech back to my question several times and finally he kindly marked his recommended places quickly on a map. Apparently... More

The visitors center is actually very interesting and everyone is so nice. You can get food there and shop a little and get allt he info you need on Savannah or Tybee. We always like getting Christmas Ornaments here.

We visited two Visitors centers; one on the riverfront and one in the little square near the riverfront. They had numerous brochures and were staffed with friendly people. Clean restrooms also.

I gave this visitors center a 3 because I didn't go there. I did go by there, but there was a pay to park parking lot. Why do I want to go and pay money to find out where I want to spend my money in this city. The only way to go free is to ride a trolley. This... More
