Based on images and descriptions of this tour, I was expecting many more step-on guests. The characters were entertaining but hard to understand given their overstated accents. Driver was entertaining, but I expected more civil war and civil rights history.

Giving life to history

We went around the square by ourselves prior to doing the narrated trolley tour. We were able to see the monuments up close. However, with the narrated tour, the monuments and the square and the history became alive. We were able to understand and appreciate what we saw and what’s in Savannah much better. Our guide (an older gentleman) is awesome. I would appreciate less on Hollywood trivia though but more on history trivia.

It was great to learn some of the history of the town. I would suggest the all day tour where you can hop on and off at the stops. Make a day of it and enjoy. We were just passing through and only had a couple hours. Definitely will be back. Beautiful is an understatement.

Guides we're knowledgeable and entertaining. Drivers did a great job getting us safely through the crowded streets. Parked the car when we arrived, used the trolley to get where we wanted to go, saved having to find parking.

Our narrator was good and the “characters” who boarded and told stories was fun. A lot of info to take in—probably better for adults than kids.

Need to acknowledge the enslaved people who built Savannah
Kelly_C
, Jun 2022
Although the staff is friendly, we did not enjoy the tour. There was zero mention of the contributions of the enslaved. And we all know Savannah was built on their slave labor. The enslaved are and how people gained their wealth and there was no acknowledgment of that. It felt like revisionist and whitewashed history. The hostess made this comment “The Civil War should never have happened” but did not elaborate any further. At that point, we couldn’t bear it anymore so we hopped off early.

Disappointed.

We could hear very little of the narration. The guide spoke way to fast and trailed off his sentences so that made it more difficult. People behind us were talking which added to the difficulty of hearing.
