“A good tour for first time in Savannah”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is a local owned tour group that has there own little twist. The one we did was a stop and go trolley type tour where you can get off at one of the 16 stops and get back on another trolley later on. First driver we stayed on all they way around then went back around and got off at places we thought be interesting. The driver/guide was fun and knew a lot of info about around town and was able to get this across to us is a clear manner. As we went around at some stops we had seom "guests" hop on, Forest Gump and a Pirate to name a couple. It was a cute little idea and some what informative. Next driver we had did have knowledge of the area but he seemed to have a hard time recalling it and kept bringing in personal facts that were not pertinent to the trip. Just made it seem weird. Over all from what we experienced and others we talked to that one guy might have just been an off driver and just that day. I would tell people to try them it is a very nice friendly company and good overview tour with the on and off tour. Last little thing is they have several other tours that we did not do " ghost", "Land and sea" but plan to try next time we come to town.

“Super friendly and informative”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Took trolley tour today. Was impressed from the time the shuttle picked us up at our hotel to the time we were delivered back there. Started out with Kathleen who was very welcoming and enthusiastic. Hopped off and got back on with Dennis who was a true Southern gentleman with a great sense of humor.He went the extra mile to be sure we got delivered to the front step of our hotel. Would definitely recommend this company! Great ambassadors for a lovely city!

“Great Tour of Savannah Historic District”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

I only had an afternoon to tour Savannah and took the trolley tour of the Historic District. Karen was a fantastic tour guide, never missing a beat while driving the trolley wearing a hoop skirt. Quite talented and entertaining and a wealth of information about the area. Thoroughly enjoyable.

“A Fun Ride”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We rode with four drivers on Old Savannah Tours 90 minute on/off tour on March1. Dennis was the most entertaining of the four and all gave informative history of the city. The one thing we missed is what buildings do give tours and when. During the tour, "Forrest Gu" and the pirate "Valerie Sparrow" boarded briefly and were very funny. I highly recommend this tour.

“Great tour”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

If you only have a few hours to see savannah this is a great deal. I had to cram the city in a few hours and they did a great job of showing sites and giving history.
