Old Savannah Tours
For over 35 years Old Savannah Tours has been providing visitors to Savannah an intriguing and fascinating experience of Savannah’s rich history. The tours have been created by Savannahians and refined over time by personal research and local experience which makes each tour as different and descriptive as each guide’s love for Savannah. Being Savannah’s oldest locally owned tour company is a matter of pride at Old Savannah Tours, (Established in 1979) and visitors are often reminded that it’s no accident that “Savannah” is their middle name.
In 2012, Old Savannah Tours underwent a “rebranding” effort to further set itself apart from its competition. A cast of real-life characters brings historical and other storied figures to life during trolley tours. Characters include Johnny Mercer, Florence Martus who is also known as the “Waving Girl”, Jim Williams of Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil fame, Caty Green who tells tales of her revolutionary war husband, General Nathaniel Green, and even Forrest Gump. Throw in a strikingly real visit from a pirate or two, and you have a “something to write home about” understanding of Old Savannah Tours’ theme, “We bring Savannah’s history to life”. Often, tour guides dress in historical apparel. Your tour might be led by a cotton baron from the old Cotton Exchange, Georgia founder General James Oglethorpe, or a Confederate soldier.
A variety of tour choices provide tours tailored to fit the schedules of virtually any visitor to Savannah. The Historic On/Off Tour can be an all day experience. The shorter Savannah Experience (3 hours) and Historic Overview Tour (90 minutes) bring Savannah’s history to life within a more compact time frame. At night, the Old Savannah Ghost Trolley brings Savannah’s history to life in a most memorable way, with dinner included at the historic Pirate’s House.
Old Savannah Tours also offers private group tours, transportation services for weddings, reunions, and any other event. For more information visit our website at www.oldsavannahtours.com or call 800-517-9007 or 912-234-8128.
