"[the tour] was exceptionally good"
The trolley tour with savannah tours was exceptional. Was exceptionally good because the person in charge when we arrived marked our tickets to let us have two days of trolley use for the price of one day. Thanks to vacations made easy for making our vacation a bit easier.
