Both of these tours were wonderful! The River Cruise captain was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to while crusing. The bus tour guide was Max and he was great because he knew all the history and some good stories too. I cannot say enough good things about Oglethorpe. Larry greeted us and was the sweetest guy. He gave us really good information about making sure we took the River Boat cruise first because of the time constraints since we did not know it only was available at 2 pm that day. He called for a free shuttle for us and he told us if we ran out of time and did not get to do the Hop on Hop off Trolley tour that day to come back and see Joey who would take care of us. I felt so welcomed and Larry was so kind and sincere- the best customer service ever!
River tour fascinating. Hop-on Hop-off tour group was professional, helpful and guide was knowledgeable. Viator booked us for a river cruise on a day they weren't running - so we had to do lots of re-negotiating travel stay, etc. but the company was very good.
We really enjoyed the insight that the Trolley driver had into the city. We could have just driven around ourselves but we would have missed out on all the tidbits that we learned. The River Cruise was also insightful. Please do not expect to be touring the canals in Venice but the Savannah River history from the Boat Captain's perspective was an added benefit.
Great! Trolley tour very informative, great driver, and Savannah was so beautiful!! Really enjoyed stop at the Catholic cathedral, gorgeous. We also thoroughly enjoyed the ferry ride, very informative. The whole experience was great!!!
The "Hop on Hop off" experience was superb. It was run differently than traditional tours of this type. Instead of waiting for a bus to come by, we called and they came to pick us up. There was little wait for the pick up and they took us right to our destination, with only a few stops when other passengers were there. It was like having a private driver!
We really enjoyed both the Trolley and River Cruise and found it very informative and loaded with local and historic information. We will use the Hop on and Off Trolleys in other cities that we visit in the future.
We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the start of the tour. Very helpful info given there. From there we boarded our trolley for a 1-1/2 hour tour of the city. Very knowledgeable guide and great tour. We then went to get our tickets for the river cruise which was great. Captain was great and trip was very interesting. When we were ready to go back to our hotel all we had to do was make a phone call and we were picked up and taken back. Everyone very professional, helpful and friendly.
Nice overview of Savannah history and culture. A good way to get the "overall" tour. The river cruise was very enjoyable and informative. A nice combination.
cool was great. We had to skip the river cruise because we had other plans.
The river is not particularly scenic but the commentary was interesting and it was a relaxing way to spend a couple of hours.
The 'land' portion which was a tour of Savannah was great. The driver was knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining overall. The 'sea' portion was a short trip up and down the Savannah River. I was a little disappointed that it wasn't a little further down river to the ocean, but the captain did explain at length the huge shipping industry in Savannah.

Trolley tour through Savannah was about an hour and gave good information. Riverboat was unable to depart dock, so no comment on that portion of tour.
The trolly tour was really great, although the seats are pretty uncomfortable..it was packed and we had to share seats. Our tour guide Micki was very knowledgable and easy to understand and she really could wheel that big trolly around easily. The RiverCruise was pretty lame and somewhat disappointing, but it was such a beautiful day, we didn't much care. The hop on hop off part was not very convenient and the designated stops were difficult to find. Signs only faced one way and if you were walking the opposite direction it was easy to pass them by.
Not enough information as to where and when
GUIDE was good once the trip started...knowledgeable
Traveling around Savannah was not as easy as stated by guides
Boat trip was one star...poor sound system....minimal information related to boat and river....
riverboat cruise was a waste of time--very short travel distance
