Thought we'd learn of the history of Savannah. The impression that we got was it was known for bootleggers and jessibells

Wonderful overview of Savannah
MaryBeth_R, Jan 2023
CJ was a wonderful guide and the historical figures who hopped on the bus to tell their story were fun.

Haley_h, Jan 2023
This tour was well worth the price. Trolly was comfortable, and the windows had clear covers, as it was raining. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. I did not find myself bored for the entire 90 minutes! A really great overview of the city, and good jumping off point to decide what museums and sites you'd like a closer look at. Great rainy day activity too!
Loved Savannah
Christopher_C, Jan 2023

Great tour!
Donna_V, Jan 2023
The guide was very informative and took us through several areas in the historic district of Savannah.
Great!
Daksha_D, Jan 2023
We enjoyed this tour a lot! Informative and the characters who came dressed up and with information were like a bonus.
Ride Local!
Jeremiah_M, Jan 2023
The locally owned trolley company (Old Savannah Tours/the white trolleys) was definitely the right choice. The guide gave tons of interesting details about the city and her pride at living there was very apparent. It was a good way to see the city early in the trip and decide what we wanted to revisit, especially since it was so cold outside. Way better than walking!
Not pleased
JTENNARO, Jan 2023
There were none. The transport was open air & therefore cold & windy. The noise from the transport van drowned out the guides vocals. We left the tour after stop 10.
Historic tour with great benefits!
Randal_E, Jan 2023
Historic tour of Savannah was highlighted by actors playing roles and talking to the entire trolley and a wealth of information shared by the driver. Well worth the money spent and really enjoyed the whole experience.
Support locals
Vicki_C, Jan 2023
White trolley is local orange is not if you support local business. We loved white trolley our driver was fantastic maneuvering the squares, several times we had to watch her instead of listening to story it was very impressive! We had her on ghost tour as well . Sandra was great. Very informative and quite enjoyable.
Wonderful Tour!
Kaitlin_D, Jan 2023
We went on the trolly ride in January and it was great! The tour guide/bus driver Carol was so knowledgeable and entertaining. We loved our tour and wished it went longer because we loved hearing all about Savannah.
Great quick Tour
Brian_M, Jan 2023
Excellent tour guide, Abigail. She really brought the people and history of the Savannah historical district alive. This 90 minute tour gave us a good overall perspective of how Savannah was formed and the colorful pioneers that gave it life.
