In a city that was founded in 1732 that is so rich is history and culture, what better way to experience her 22 beautiful historic squares and iconic River Street than from an open-air trolley tour. Sit back and relax as you tour Savannah’s famous historic district and hear captivating facts and tales of momentous legends and wars. Expert tour guides will take you by magnificent mansions, spectacular squares, historic churches and down the world famous River Street. You will be engulfed in the city’s founding, its wars, burial rituals and regrowth. Everywhere you turn is another intriguing story that’s just as fascinating as the last. One trolley may excite you with bringing history to life during the tour and you could encounter a costumed historic character aboard your trolley.
A full tour around the historic district lasts 90 minutes, but most trolley companies offer an “on-off” ticket option that gives you privileges to exit the trolley at any of their pre-designated historic stops to tour or explore the area. Trolleys operate on a 15-20 minute pick-up schedule for each stop and will continue on the tour route to complete the full tour. Trolley companies also offer complimentary pick-up services that can be arranged at inns and hotels in the historic district and surrounding areas. You can also get on a trolley at the Savannah Visitors Center or various locations throughout the historic district.
