" I highly recommend Old Savannah tours when visiting"
We really enjoyed our tour of savannah. We chose to do the on/off tour and are glad that we did. We got off at a couple of different places and explored, shopped, and ate and then got on the next trolley that came by. Our longest wait for a trolley was about 10 minutes. Getting on and off we experienced several different drivers, but all were very knowledgeable. At several stops they had an actor get on board that was playing the role of some significant person from savannah history, that was quite enjoyable. Our favorite part was a forrest gump impersonator that got on at one of the stops. It was very unexpected and very funny. I think it's really cool that the tour company adds this type of entertainment to their tours. Overall we were very pleased. We were able to learn how to navigate the town and learned a lot about the town as well. I highly recommend old savannah tours when visiting.
