A trip to Savannah means you will be visiting the oldest city in the state of Georgia. Dating back to 1733, Savannah, GA, is rich with history and timeless architecture, including several points of interests regarding the American Revolution and the American Civil War. When you are looking to explore and capture the history of the city, there is no better way to do so than to experience one of the many Savannah trolley tours. Here are a few of the trolley tours that we believe will be both entertaining and educational when you make Presidents’ Quarters Inn your choice of Savannah bed and breakfast.
Old Savannah Tours
Since 1979, Old Savannah Tours has been guiding passengers through the streets of its beloved city. This is no passive tour, either, as Old Savannah Tours is able to bring the town’s history to life by encountering key figures like General James Oglethorpe or even Forrest Gump. If you are a Savannah native, there is even another bonus for you. Just bring a paying guest, and you will get a free pass (up to three free passes).
Old Savannah Tours offers a variety of exploring options, ranging from a 90-minute historic overview tour to an all-day tour where you can get on and off the trolley at your convenience throughout the day. You can also hop aboard the trolley at night and experience Trolley Tales of Historic Haunts that will show you why Savannah is plagued with its share of paranormal activity.
Oglethorpe Trolley Tours
Take a trip through Savannah, including stops at the historic squares and along the waterfront on a beautiful blue trolley. Just like the city itself, the Oglethorpe tour guides exemplify the true meaning of Southern hospitality. You will have the chance to see the Mansion on Forsyth, the Exchange Bell, and everything in between.
At Oglethorpe Trolley Tours, you can enjoy a one-day or two-day trolley pass with unlimited hop on/hop off flexibility. You can also experience two different Haunted Tour packages or mix up your tour by purchasing The Land and Sea Savannah Package. That option will allow you time in the historic district as well as time on board a replica paddle wheeler on the Savannah River.
For those looking for a more personal experience with your tour guide around the city, try to beat the crowd and plan your Savannah trolley tour between Monday and Thursday. By doing this, you will have top-notch service during the day on your tour before heading to the Presidents’ Quarters Inn for the evening.
