We traveled with my 75 year old mother and thought the trolley ride would be a good alternative from walking around the city; this was a GREAT option. It was a wonderful way to see almost all of the downtown area and hear the history/stories about the city. Definitely enjoyable and relaxing.

The trolley tours give an option of on-off stops all day long, and are worth the investment if you don't want to have to go through the challenge of finding parking in the historic district all day. (We also found a Groupon for them; so it made even more sense.) They provide a good over-all perspective of history and point... More

Free parking at the tour's base. After tour you can take on and off van until 5:30pm. Can be long wait between pick ups in historic district. Very informative. Offer discounts from advertising pamphlets.

We enjoyed this introduction to Savannah. The 90 minute tour offers maybe too much information to take in, but it's a great way to get started and see what else you want to visit in Savannah while saving your feet for other activities.

This "hop-on hop-off" tour starts with a 90 minute narrated tour of the historic district in a trolley, with 90 minutes of non-stop information. Good thing they don't make you take a test at the end :-) They pick guests up,at their hotels and take them to the tour starting point at their visitor center. After the tour, guests receive...

The trolley we boarded was old and worn. The windows in the trolley were so dirty you had to open them to see out of them. Our driver was very knowledgable. I would suggest using another service with open air trolleys.

Took a 90-minute bus tour and it was enjoyable. The tour guide knew what she was doing and made the tour fun. We got back in plenty of time to catch our dinner cruise. Recommend to anyone visiting.

One of the few tours that doesn't do hop-on, hop-off. They do the complete tour and then take you back to any stops you want to further explore. Call them and they'll come pick you up and take you to your next stop. In short, your personal taxi service. Other tours allow on-off, resulting in trolleys that get crowded and... More

The tours are the perfect way to get around the city. You can get on and off as many times as you like and they will give you a good overview of the city.

The trolley tour was not up to par. Our guide, who stated she was a college professor, gave some conflicting information based on some other tours we took. Her flower and fauna knowledge was very lacking. It was one of the cheaper tours, and it showed!
