I have never taken a tour like this in a city but when I saw how big and historic Savannah looked, I thought it might be worth while. It definitely was. Our tour guide (Debbie, I believe) was chipper, had tons of information to share, and even told a few jokes. We couldn't stay all day so we didn't use... More

First time in Savannah booked the day tour with the on/off pass best thing we did. The 90 min tour was informative Jane our guide was funny and she made it interesting. We got of on River street to walk and eat and when we were done called the # to have a shuttle pick us up. It's worth it.

This tour advertising is incorrect. You find that out once you have been picked up and taken to stop B. The "trolley stops" are not where the trolley stops. The tour consists of approximately 80 minutes of bone rattling, constant turning, some slowing down and non stop commentary, and you can first get off at stop M. There is no... More

This tour is a great way to see Savannah and get a good overview. Our guide/driver was interesting and informative. I am hard of hearing and had no trouble hearing him. Another positive about our tour was we had a 90 minute, uninterupted tour of the historic and river districts of the city; then we were given the rest of... More

The trolley is not really 'on and off' as they advertise. If you are on a 'tour' you cannot get on and off. If you are at a stop for which a trolley is passing that is on a 'tour' you cannot get on. After your 'tour' you must call for a special shuttle to your next destination. However they... More

Greetings from Savannah! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on our tour. I apologize that you feel that we do not advertise our tour properly. In our brochure we describe the tour as "Fully narrated UNINTERRUPTED 90 minute tour with unlimited on off until 5:30 p.m." We feel that showing you Savannah first and then doing... More

After researching options for city tours of Savannah, GA, for my wife and me, I chose Oglethorpe Trolley Tours, and I am so glad that I did. For less than $80.00 I purchased a combination package for the two of us that consisted of the Historic Savannah Trolley Tour and the Haunted Trolley Tour, the former operated during the day... More

We got on the Historic Overview tour at the last minute w/Oglethorpe. We ended up in seats by a closed window, though the back few rows were open air. There was no fan and as you probably know, Savannah is HOT & HUMID in the summer. The tour itself gave us a nice overview, the guide left something to be... More

Loved the tour. Our tour guide, Max, was great. He did a really good job of giving us the lay of the land for our first day. Also, when we wanted to "hop back on" after the tour let out we were able to call and they had a trolley there to pick us up in less than 10 minutes.... More

If you are traveling with small/young children I highly suggest you use another trolley tour company! I have 2 small children and if I would have known that for you to be picked up it takes 20-25 minutes then I would have used another company. If you want to be on the first tour be sure to drive yourself to... More

Greetings from Savannah! I am glad that you enjoyed your tour with us. I apologize that you felt that you waited too long for the on off service. All trolley tour companies come by their trolley stops every 20 - 30 minutes. The longest wait you had was 25 minutes - which falls in line with the time frame we... More

We first get their and one of the lady's selling tickets is physically yelling at me on were to park. Then when I go to her to ask where we go to get on the trolley she still has a attitude.. I thought that was highly disrespectful. Overall the tour was nice but the young lady almost made my day... More
