The next time you stay with us, get to know our beautiful city by taking a ride on a Savannah trolley. 

The Best Savannah Trolley Tours

Old Town Trolley: Originally started in Key West, FL, in the 1980s, this sightseeing tour company has expanded to several other amazing cities like Boston, St. Augustine, Nashville, and of course, Savannah.

Old Savannah Tours: If you enjoy live entertainment, this is the tour for you! Old Savannah Tours is one of the most unique tours in the area and was created by Savannah natives. Guests can enjoy reenactments of important moments of the city’s history as well as visits from iconic figures like Forrest Gump, James Oglethorpe, and even a pirate.

Oglethorpe Gray Line Trolley Tours: Named after Georgia’s beloved founder, this tour will take you on a journey through time as you explore districts laced with old stories, the gorgeous waterfront, historic squares, and other popular locations. The Oglethorpe Gray Line offers wonderful southern hospitality and warmly invites you to fall in love with the city!

Savannah Trolley Ghost Tours

Although beautiful, Savannah is one of America’s most haunted cities and still houses the spirits of previous residents. Taking a bone-chilling ghost tour is a great way to explore some of the spookiest locations, and most of the trolley tour companies host excursions throughout the year that will send a shiver down your spine! Here are a few of the best. 

Trolley Tales of Historic Haunts: Not for the faint of heart, this tour gives guests the opportunity to walk through the two most haunted buildings in the entire city – the Rum Cellar at the Pirate’s House and the Sorrel-Weed House. The Infrared Room at the Sorrel-Weed House is occupied by so many spirits of the deceased that it was featured on SyFy Channel’s “Ghost Hunters” and has been ranked in the top 10 Most Creepy Places in America!

Evening Haunted Trolley Tour: This fully-narrated ghost tour is another scary way to see the city and takes you through Savannah’s historic district. You’ll listen to the tales of the restless spirits who still lurk in the area and learn about why they haven’t found rest.

Ghosts and Gravestones Frightseeing Tour: Swallow your screams aboard the trolley that winds through Savannah’s most haunted cobblestone streets! On this comical and informative tour, guests will learn all about the darker side of the city’s history – including a few ghoulish mysteries that have yet to be solved.
