I'm a native of Savannah, and have lived/worked in the historic district for several years. When my in-laws came to visit, I could think of only one trolley tour that I wanted to take them on, Old Savannah Tours. Our tour guide, Kathleen, was animated, engaging, and informative, giving us a great history lesson with some colorful anecdotes in between... More

We did the off and on tour and loved it. We started late on Saturday afternoon and did the first seven stops and then completed the tour the following afternoon. This was a great way to see the city and learn about its rich history. We discovered things that we did not even realize existed from walking around. Both Carole... More

This was our first time visiting Savannah and we weren't sure how to explore. We ended up doing the old Savannah tours and it was really fun and very educational. Our tour guide was really good. You get to ride the trolley to various stops and see all these different types of historical places. I wish we had stayed for... More

A good overview of the city, easy transportation for those with physical limitations, but still want to see the city. If your capable of reading a guide book, map, and walking, I wouldn't waste my money. However if your looking for an easy city overview, buy a ticket and jump onboard. "Visitors" at various stops give you a historic perspective... More

Our guide was Anna who was fantastic in both educating and entertaining us. If you can ride this trolly more than once, and hop on and hop off, do so! Take time to sit in the squares and gaze at the beautiful homes. The stops where the costumed characters come on board were fun! If you go later in the... More

We spent the day off and on the tour. The best way to see it, I think, is to go the 90 minute tour first. As you tour and make the rounds, make note of the places you want to stop and see. Hop back on and off and see what is of interest to you. We enjoyed it immensely.... More

Visited Savannah this past weekend and decided to do the Old Savannah hop on hop off tour to really get a feel for Savannah. Really glad we chose this company as we learned it's locally owned and operated featuring tour guides from Savannah, and also features several "characters" that hop on the buses at certain stops to tell additional stories...

We really enjoyed our 90 minute tour of the city with Julie. She narrated as she drove, telling stories and giving information about the sights. It gave us a good overview of places we wanted to return to on our own. The second shuttle we rode on had a separate guide from the driver. She was dressed in character and... More

We did the 90 min stay-on tour, but for a little more $$, most people opted for the hop off, hop on for the numerous points of interest. Anna was our driver and guide, a real character.. made the tour a lot of fun. Free parking at the departure lot / official visitors center.

Great tour of the city and all of its history. Their guides are local people and have their own stories to tell. Big Scott was our guide and he was the best. Forrest Gump even hopped on at one point.
