We hired the Savannah Walking Tour Company to show us the Historic District. Brad was our guide. The tour was very informative, interesting and quite comprehensive. Brad shared many stories and answered our numerous questions. Savannah is a beautiful city with a rich history. We are thrilled that we decided to visit.

Get on the HOP ON HO OFF TROLLEY- It will give you a lot of History and a good lay of the land. There is so much to do and see it's just amazing. River Front, Market Square, and all the neat neighborhoods and Museums. Take your time relax. It's called sloooowvannah for a reason. Step back and enjoy!

We were stopping in for a few days. What a mistake. Next time will be much longer. Savannah is charming. Feels like your walking into another time period in the historic district. We will be back!!!!

What a beautiful place to walk around in! We arrived in the late afternoon & we departed the next day in early afternoon. Beautiful buildings and a very artsy area. Also very good restaurants! Worth going for the day.

There is so much history on this tour and it's centered around 21 "squares". You can either catch the trolley tour or the buses run from 9A-9P and stop at all the historical places. It was difficult to see everything in one day, so I would suggest two days. Also, don't miss the Riverwalk and the Market Place.

We booked our trip for Valentines Day and are so glad we did. The historic area is a fantastic mix of history, architecture, dining, and fun. We parked the car Sunday morning and didn't go near it until we left Wednesday. The whole area is completely walkable. We recommend doing at least a couple tours if you're not familiar with... More

Only spent one day here. It is totally awesome. If you love a walking city with a lot of history and dining. This is your place. Plenty of restaurants, taverns and shops. Three or four days would be the appropriate amount of time to do this area justice.

I visit Savannah at least five times a year and it is because of the historic district. I love all the history, houses, squares and culture. Each time I come I always discover something new that I did not see or know before. Can not wait till my next trip!!

This is our second time in Savannah, having returned after visiting last February. We stayed in the same apartment on one of the squares in the historic district, and are already discussing coming back next winter as we have fallen in love with the city. The homes, the squares, the overall incredible beauty and charm of this very walkable city... More
