“Loved the Hop On Hop Off”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The tour was good and the ability to hop on and hop off was great. We were able to do the 90 minute tour first and then choose which site we wanted to spend more time seeing. Plan on a whole day or you'll miss a lot of sites. The guides were good, sometimes a little hokey, but all in all good. Tina was good and so was MoJo. I can't remember some of the others, but they were all full of good information. They could can the so-called 'humor' because none of them were very funny. I did learn a lot about Savannah, though and wished I could have spent another day there. This company could be a little faster at picking up at the stops as we waited and saw two of the orange trolleys go by before one of ours came around.

“Great way to get started!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

On my recent trip to Savannah the hotel staff suggested I book an "on-off" tour with the Old Savannah Tours. They couldn't have been a nicer and more helpful tour company. First they were so accomadating they even picked me up at my hotel and drove me to the Headquarters in the city. Once there I was greeted by Emory and he showed me the way to the trolley. Our guide, Tammy, was outstanding! She was informative, humorous and very knowledgable of the city and it's history. She took her time and pointed out many landmarks that later I returned to on foot to spend more time. At one point "Forrest Gump" actually hopped on the trolley and took a seat next to me, what fun :0)! After the tour I was graciously transported back to my hotel by Levonne who was also very friendly and made sure he returned all of us back safely to where we began. This tour company knows what they are doing and do it well. There are other companies available but I don't think you will do any better than Old Savannah Tours! Ask for Tammy and I and I can guarantee it!!!

“Excellent tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

We did the 90 minute Historical Overview tour and it was fantastic. This tour would be great yo do on you first day to get familiar with the city. The tout guide was great and the shuttle to the hotels made it very convenient. I would definitely take this tour again.

“Mixed review”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We recently took the on and off tour. We initially stayed on for the entire tour. Mojo was our guide and he did a great job as our guide. This part of the tour would deserve a 5 rating. Unfortunately, we decided to ride again and get off and explore on our own for awhile. We were going to get back on at stop #15 when we were finished. We waited for about 25 minutes for a trolley. During this time there were three orange trolleys and two blue trolleys that picked up at the same location. Finally a white one showed up, and guess what..... it was full. We decided to walk back to the parking lot instead of waiting any longer for another one to come. This part of the tour would deserve a 0 rating. This left a bad taste in our mouth. Seemed like one of the other companies would be better equipped for you to truly get on and off.

“Best tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Covered just the right amount of the town for an overview. Driver good. Open windows. Too many stops.
