“Visitor Center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

A busy place, but parking is FREE and there is a lot of great information to find if you haven't visited Savannah before. Lots of trolley tours leave out of here as well.

“Good place to start.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We stayed directly across the street from visitors center. Walked there to catch tour bus. Staff was very friendly. There is also a small gift shop hidden in the back corner. My son actually found it...not really any signs. It is owned by the chamber of commerce and is VERY reasonable. If you are looking for savannah trinkets ...look here for the best bargains.

“Great first stop in Savannah!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

As the official tour guide for my family and friends I have developed an itinerary of must see attractions- and the visitors center is always first! The movie about the historic district is very good, as it is told by James Olglethorpe, founder of Savannah. The museum there is also nice, and both the movie and museum are a good value at $6. Even my 12year old niece and nephew liked it! Friendly and informative staff, and clean restrooms.

“Visitors Center, bring the "nickels and dimes.."”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Found the Savannah Visitors Center to be adequate, the bathroom and gift shop are open to the public at no charge, for everything else, including the short film and attractions, bring your wallet or purse. Parking rates are ok for the Visitors Center, however, I saw very little if any foot traffic for the film and museum in the rear of the building. The primary purpose of the center is to take the trolley tours, start and end points.
