Had a great tour of Savanna for our 15 year wedding anniversary thanks to Stu our tour guide/trolley driver. He is very knowledgeable as should be expected and kept us entertained between the many sights. And when we said we were insulted (lol) about his South Carolina jokes he quickly apologized and change the target of his humor to insulting New Jersey for which we were very grateful.
Upon departing his trolley we left him an appropriate tip for which he commented with a smile "Thanks New Jersey" LOL

Thank Dennis B

Visited with the family for the weekend and took the tour. We ended up staying on the same bus for the whole tour. It was a great way to see the city without having to walk the whole time. I thought our two kids (11,13) would be bored but they actually enjoyed it. We ended up eating lunch at the pirate house after the tour. If you want to see the city and hear about the history this is a great way to do it. Bought my tickets online at a discounted price.

Dennis our tour guide was just a wealth of knowledge and fun facts about Savannah. We had previously done this tour and luckily, we got Dennis again. The tour is fun and historically informative. I had just finished reading "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" so was extremely excited to see some of the places referenced in the book.

When in Savannah, this is definitely a tour to ride on and the on/off tour is even better, you can get off and shop or have lunch and hop on again to finish tour circuit.

Went on the tour with our kids, fearing that it was not going be a success, however with all of the things to see as well as the ability to get on and off, it proved to be a success! Julie was our tour guide for the morning and she was great. Her knowledge and commentary was fantastic! Worth the time and money.

It was great to ride around on the trolly, getting a lay of the land and a history lesson. The history lesson included the scandalous stories associated with various people and landmarks, as well. I would have probably gotten more out of it if I had a list of all of the stops written down and a pen in hand to add notes along the way. A lot of the content was information overload for me!

I appreciated that the driver commented on his favorite restaurants and we used his recommendations to select a dining spot later that day.

I didn't appreciate the driver telling us that his paycheck was small and he really depended on tips. A "tips welcome" sign is sufficient, but a direct request for tips is tacky, in my opinion.
