We were very pleased with the tours and the service the hop-on-hop-off trolleys provided!
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.
Tour was great. The tour guides were extremely informative.
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.
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
Our driver was a bit crabby and short with people.....he kept tapping on the window with his microphone, which was annoying-----he many times told us info before we were to the spot or after we were by and we didn't know where to look to find what he was talking about-
Though the land part of the tour was definitely worth doing, it was the sea portion that let it down. Though the old paddle boat was beautiful, it was more an education in cargo ships and other vessels than having anything pertaining to Savannah and its history. Just stick to the trolley tour.
