Old Savannah Tours

Back to Savannah...

We decided to take a hop-on, hop-off tour in Savannah. There were many options and it was hard to choose. In the end, I chose Old Savannah Tours after reading yelp reviews. What I liked about it were the characters who hopped on to tell their story. Purchase tickets on the website to get a discount--$48 for 2 (fall/winter special).

The Old Savannah Tours ticket office is at 250 MLK Jr Blvd. They'll pick you up at your hotel if you arrange it in advance. After picking up our tickets, we walked across the street to the Savannah Visitors Information Center where the trolley picked us up.

Forrest Gump hopped on at Stop #2--Savannah Theater, near Chippewa Square. 

Rosie the Riveter hopped on at the Mansion on Forsyth Park, Stop #4.

A slave girl hopped on at Stop #12--River Street.

We stayed on the trolley for the entire tour on our first go-around--around 1 1/2 hours. The drivers have no scripts but do have a set route. There are over 20 characters and not everyone comes on every trolley. The next time we passed Stop #12, a male slave hopped on. I really wanted to see the pirate but he never got on even though we must have made the entire route 3 times. The trolleys run from 9 am to 4:30 pm every 15-20 minutes. Be ready to drop a tip in the tip jar.
