Hop on and off... not so much. Our driver Joann missed the #3 stop at Ellis square. We were planning to eat breakfast and shop and make a day of it. Nope we were stuck on the trolley bc she forgot. So we ended up getting off at stop 9 45 mins later.

Fun and Informative!
Erica_C

The trolley tour was very informative and we learned a lot about Savanah! The only part that was tough was sometimes getting back on a trolley after a stop, when people didn't get off. So since it was full we had to wait for another... however, I will say that the drivers were attentive and would assure us that they were calling for another!

We enjoyed our tour around the city! The drivers were very knowledgeable and we appreciated their enthusiasm! It was also nice to get off and on the trolley to tour the city. I had unknowingly printed an old map and the driver picked our family up even though we were at a stop that was no longer being used as a stop. He did not have to do that. We appreciate that he did that for us.

Great tour guides and knowledgeable about the city! Humorous and answered all of my tourist-y questions :) Very kid- and stroller-friendly. Ease of ticket purchase and convenience was great! Bought same-day ticket coming from HHI and made the drive in the morning and was still able to fully enjoy the full tour and some fun stops for food and shopping. Buses were on station at bus stops in a timely manner and patient for those coming off and on. Whole tour is 1.5 hours so perfect to see the city quick and then go back to sites you are interested in revisiting or learning more about. The only thing that wasn’t great was the quality of your guide was different every ride so if touring with one not so good your experience may be impacted. Also, it would have been nice in the pamphlet to read facts about your stops to refer back to if you were distracted or missed something rather than all the ad junk that takes up so much space. Overall, a great experience and I am glad I did this tour.
