Great way to get acquainted with Savannah. The tour guides are well informed, pleasant, and have a sense of humor. The ability to hop on and off at points of interest is a real plus. The boarding times are convenient and they run on time with very little wait.

It had been almost twelve years since our first visit to this uniquely designed city, so we took the trolley tour as we had done the first time. Bari was an excellent guide, and I understood more, appreciated the city more, as I retained more information than I had before. It all started with a wonderful lady we met at... More

As you probably know this is a off and on self guided tour. I am amazed at the knowledge of the drivers - they make the tour an experience! When in Savannah and on an Old Town Trolley I can only hope you get on Denise's trolley. The best way to describe how she tells you about the area is... More

We got our tickets at the hotel and saved a couple dollars. Easy on and off. Excellent guides. We got off about 5 times and each time got right back on quickly. During peak season it might not be as easy. Only flaw was some had the plastic "windows" down so it was like looking through smeared glasses. Couldn't take... More

This was our first visit to Savannah and we wanted an overview of the city. We chose Old Town Trolley Tours because of the off-on option. Trolleys came by each stop every 15 minutes throughout the day, which made it easy to hop off, take some photos or visit an attraction, and hop back on. The tour guides were knowledgeable... More

We liked the tour guide "Cindy" she was polite, knew the town and was interesting to interact with. We needed an overall tour to get acclimated. This tour was good for that. This company has lots of extra tours to sell, beware, they try. Free parking in the visitors center lot but be out by six in the evening or... More

It was interesting to see the city at large and know where things I relationship to other places. We used it more as a way to get around the city. It turns out there is a free dot bus that takes you to the same places In the city . We got a map at Ellis square

My family and I were only in Savannah for one day. We assumed that a trolley tour would be a great option to see the city in such a short period of time. Being from Boston, another city where Old Town operates, we recognized their vehicles and, subsequently, chose them over the other trolley company. The parking was free and... More

We enjoyed the tour. Our driver, Chris, was great. when we exited at one of the stops I left my coat on the trolley. We immediately called the company. When Chris returned to the visitors center he had my coat and it was kept safe until we arrived on a later trolley

Let me start by saying we've always had positive experiences using the Old Town Trolley company in other cities across the US. This time it was not so good. After we paid and were waiting for the trolley to start, the driver informed us the "Founder's Day" parade was going on so some of the stops were not avaiable. Some...... More

First of all, please except my sincere apologies for your frustration and our failure to meet your expectations. When parades occur in our historic district, we take extra measures to ensure that our tour can still operate outside of the tour route. Parades can sometimes bring traffic and street closures in places that weren't for-warned about. For this again, we... More
