Local Savannah Tour Guides are ready to take you on a journey through time back to the founding of our city by James Edward Oglethorpe. There are many ways to see Savannah. See many of our city's attractions on a walking tour, carriage tour, or bus tour.
Sometimes you visit a place that leaves an unforgettable impression. Savannah is one of those places. The Official Savannah Guide welcomes you to our lovely city! We’ve been a trusted resource for planning your trip to Savannah for nearly a decade.
Savannah Carriage Tours
On a carriage tour you going to have a remarkable experience. Two types are available from Savannah Tour Companies. The group tour where a dozen or so people enter a long carriage is one option. The second choice is the “private carriage” tour which provides a much more intimate experience with both the tour guide and Savannah. These generally seat four and are perfect for couples traveling together but its very common for just one couple to be seen around town in one of these horse drawn carriages that remind you so much of the past.
Savannah Walking Tours
On a Walking Tour of Savannah you’ll have a much more personal experience of how beautiful our town is and how the amazing architecture combines with the natural beauty of the trees to form a mesmerizing experience.
There are generally three types of walking tours available in Savannah.
- The first is the typical tour group in any city that can range in size from about a dozen people up to two dozen. These walking tours are fun, entertaining and the Savannah Tour guides who host these tours always have lots of trivia and very interesting stories behind the historic places. People who love to meet strangers and mingle with others will prefer this type of Savannah Tour.
- Another type of walking tour is similar but with a smaller group. These are more intimate and typically entail two or three couples (about 6 guests) on the walking tour.
- Finally, one of our favorite Savannah Tours is the private walking tour. Sometimes you are lucky and end up on a private walking tour without even planning it during the winter months when tourists -- who still come -- are visiting Savannah in less numbers. There are several Savannah Tour Guides who specialize in giving Private Walking Tours
Savannah Trolley Tours
The Trolley Tour might be one of the most familiar Savannah Tours for both locals and visitors. It’s common to see the trolleys all over downtown Savannah at all hours taking tourists around the squares that make Savannah so distinctive and pointing out famous attractions like Mercer House -- made famous in the John Berendt novel “Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil.” There are two types of Savannah Trolley Tours you can use to see the sights. The first is the Trolley Tour where you stay on the trolley during the duration of the Savannah Tour. Secondly, several companies who offer this type also allow for “on and off” priveleges” which gives you the option to get off at any of the historic attractions and then get back on the next trolley (or any later one as it conducts its Savannah Tour with another group).
Savannah Motorcoach Tours
On a motorcoach tour you have the benefit or being protected from the weather extremes in Savannah which is mostly the hot summers. Our winters are very mild and most vacationers from the north don’t even think Savannah reaches temperatures low enough to be considered cold!
It does go below freezing several times during the winter but its rare if temperatures drop into the 20s. Summer is another matter with upper 90’s the norm for several month combined with very high humidity. Tourists sensitive to weather extremes -- especially seniors -- may find a motorcoach tour of the area the best way to remain comfortable and entertained!
Savannah Tours for Couples
Savannah is among the top ten most romantic cities for couples to visit and tour together. For couples the best Savannah Tour is one by horse drawn carriage! Imagine spending time together enjoying the outdoors during the day, having a romantic dinner and then climbing into one of our horse drawn carriage tours to slowly step back in time. Your Savannah tour guide can tell you about the events that shaped history as you take in the glorious architecture.
