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.

Miss Brenda Lee was a great guide for the 1 1/2 hour tour of the Historic District. This is the best way to introduced yourself to Savannah. Start by doing the entire tour in the morning with all the commentary & then use the trolley the rest of the day for hopping on & off at various sights you want... More

Expected more than what it was. Having been on a regular tour during the day, the ghost tour didn't offer much more. The bus made several stops to all different hotels so it was a good while before the tour actually started. To each his own.

My husband and I bought the on and off tickets for one of the days we were in Savannah. We were picked up in front of our hotel, The River Street Inn, and transported to the location to purchase tickets and begin the tour. The guided tour lasted about 90 minutes and our driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining. At... More
