We love some Pookie!!! I am so glad we made the choice to do this first. We didn't even check into the place we where staying to call Oglethorpe. We parked, called for a pick up, I applied my lipstick and they where there. Pookie was so informative. We appreciate the time she allowed us at St. John's Cathedral. I... More

We got the two day pass so we took the historic ride twice and I am so glad we did as there were things we missed the first time around. We learned so much about Savannah and its place in American History and we saw so many great and beautiful old homes. Like getting a glimpse into colonial life.

This summer we spent a wonderful week in Hilton Head with my parents. They were interested in a day trip to Savannah, a place they've never visited. I've only been there once, so I was happy to take them. First of all--Savannah is such a great destination--you just can't do it in a day. However, if you are pressed for... More

Took the full 90 minute tour the first day...Pookie was full with information about the city...but has to speak a little slower. She stopped at the Cathedral so we could go in to see it, which was very nice. We had about 15 minutes time there. However, for the second day I phoned for,the trolley which had a stop right... More

This was a very good tour. The lady at the Turner Ave location was very nice. Our Guide, Pookie, was super. She gave lots of details and was funny too. She answered questions before and after the tour. I would definitely recommend the tour. My only complaint was it seemed to take a long time to get started.

First impressions can sometimes really set the tone: When we arrived at the ticket site, there was another family waiting. When they heard we were told that a trolley would "be coming in ten minutes" they complained they had been told the same thing, and had waited already almost an hour. Needless to say, we were worried. In about 15... More

My family and I (ages ranged from 60 to 13) enjoyed the 90 minute Oglethorpe Trolley Tour of Savannah, Georgia. This was my first trip to Savannah and being totally new to the area, the tour was a great way to see the various squares and gain my bearings. The tour guide provided interesting facts surrounding the local history and... More

We decided to take the tour in the afternoon to miss the hustle and man were we wrong. We had 4 trolleys stop at the station and leave without picking us up. They weren't full just weren't taking us. Really??? I brought out of town guest and had to wait over an hour. How embarrassing! Never again

Not my first trip to Savannah or my first trolley tour. I selected this company because they had a groupon, bad decision. They were 15 minutes late picking us up from our hotel, not a huge big deal. Once we arrived at the station we had to wait to get our tickets because they only had 1 person able to... More
