The driver/tour guide of the trolley was excellent, providing historical facts, with humor. She also engaged the passengers by having them introduce themselves, when we were at red lights. It was a great introduction to Savannah!

Bringing History to Life....

All the guides were well informed and gregarious. Since we experienced three different guides, we appreciated their varied accounts of the same locations, giving us a more rounded history. I would have given the tour a five star except for the change-over of trolleys routine. Requiring everyone on the trolley to get off at the end of the driver's shift and get in line for another trolley was extremely disruptive! Why not just change drivers and keep the tour going? We waited in broiling sun (it could have been raining!) for about 30 minutes for another trolley to pick us up. The ensuing delay caused issues with other plans made for early evening.

Using the trolley is a very good way to get around and learn some things about Savannah. Standing in the hot sun to get on the trolley wasn't the best, but it was worth it once you got on the trolley and started hearing the stories.
