Make your way to a centrally-located trolley stop, where you can climb aboard for a tour of the historic city. The guide helps bring 270 years of Savannah history to life, following a carefully-chosen route through Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District, one of the largest in the United States.

See some of the city’s elegant pre-war mansions, and ride along cobblestone streets in the shade of moss-draped oak trees. Take in some of Savannah’s most beautiful squares, then head to the Savannah River for views along the water.

Throughout the tour, the guide shares scenes from life in the historic South, and sets a fun, easy-going pace that’s the perfect way to experience Savannah. This trolley tour concludes at the original departure point.

Traveler Tips

Wooden benches with a non-existent pad riding on brick and cobblestone roads is not the most comfortable way to spend 2 hours - RETHINK the bench pads, PLEASE!
This trolley tour is certainly worth your time to explore.

Wonderful experience from start to finish. The guides steered us to easy access parking to begin. The ticket agents were efficient and friendly and the "local citizens" provided an insight into historical Savannah we would never have known without them. They truly enriched the tour. Not enough nice things to say about our tour guide - very personable, amazing details about the sites, and the most remarkable driving skills! Our heartfelt thanks to all involved.

Savannah, Georgia…History Like You’ve Never Heard It!
Sydney_I, Sep 2023
The combination of our driver’s vast knowledge of Georgia/Savannah history plus his singing, jokes and book and movie references made for a very interesting, funny and enjoyable tour!
Definitely memorable day

We were on the trolley tour. Our first encounter was a very snippy parking attendant. OK, I will give her some props for standing out in the heat! We were told where to park and proceeded to walk across the street. The tour was just average. We had read many things and some of the "facts" were incorrect but that is not a big deal. Then the rain started to pour down in buckets. The tour guide, Charlie Brown, told us as we approached the Visitor's Center that he would drive us across the street to our parking spot. Several of us were parked there. Not only did he NOT do this he stopped and we all had to get out with lightning flashing all around. We couldn't use umbrellas because of the lightning. We were all drenched to the bone. It certainly was not his fault for the weather but we were NOT the only ones who heard he was going to drop us off closer to parking. We had on rain gear and it was raining so hard we still got soaked to the bone. We had to buy new shoes because ours were saturated with water. I would never do this tour again!! Very disappointed!!!

The tour guide and driver both did a very nice job of informing and navigating the streets of Savannah. So full of history. I never realized just how much. I would like to visit again.

Great way to see Savannah whilst learning about its history. Characters provided a unique story telling experience.
Savannah Bus Tour
Carol_B, Sep 2023
The driver was very knowledgeable, and I enjoyed the "characters" that showed up during the tour. The driver was very experienced in driving through the Savannah streets. There were some places that I wasn't sure he would be able to make it through, but he did. If you like history, then this is the tour for you.
My first Savannah visit

While I love the Savannah Trolley Company, I missed the hop on historical figures that used to come on board at various stops. Please bring them back!
Nice tour learned a lot

Savannah itself - it’s a beautiful city with its many squares & parks. We appreciated the guided tour to see so much of the city
Nice time
Robert_L, Sep 2023
Learning about historical atteibutes of Savannah Tour guide was terrific. The only suggestion would be adding a/c to the tour bus….or even fans to circulate air - it got hot.
