I wanted to do a ghost tour to see what it was all about- my husband not so much. We didn't want anything too cheesey, or to spend an evening walking around (after we did that all day). This tour was a good compromise - the carriage ride was unique, it wasn't too expensive, and we our guide gave some good commentary- little bit of history and a little bit of the ghost legends. Overall, it was a little boring though and we won't do it again.

This is a great way to enjoy the many offerings of Old Savanah. After taking a bus tour of the area, the carriage tour retraced much of Old savannah. The guide was very knowledgeable of the area and the leisurely pace of the carriage made for a very interesting time. While picture taking was difficult on the bus, it was easy in the carriage and we brought many memories home with us. A tour of City Market after the carriage ride was a must and worthy of a day by itself.

I did not think I would enjoy the carriage tour but it was amazing. The tour guide did a very good job in explaining the history of the city. This was my first time to Savannah, and it was just beautiful.

We booked the private carriage ride to leave at 9:30 from the Hyatt. We were told that if we wanted a romantice tour to pay the extra an do the private so we did! When the carriage arrived, it was the large picnic carriage not the small two seater we were promised. The driver told us that due to the heat they had to use this one and She would call and find out what happened, She came back and said no one answered nand we were left to either take it or She would sell our spot to a wallk up couple. We sucked it up and took it even though it totally killed any romantic mood we had anticipated. We were told that with the private we could choose the type of tour, ie ghost, history ect, so about 5 minutes into the chit chat I told the guide, We wanted to hear whatever she had about the city since it was our first time. As we rode and rode I kept waiting for it to start, assuming maybe she had a place she liked to start at? She told us not a sinngle thing about the city except that all of the houses were now business due to taxes. Imagine my dissapointment when 30 minutes into a 50 minute tour, we wheeled back into the Hyatt and it was over. What a waste of time and money! Beware of this group!
