Old Town Trolley's Holiday Lights and Sights Tour

Down here in Savannah, southern hospitality and a neighborly disposition come naturally to us. As a visitor to Georgia’s First City, don’t be surprised if a stranger wishes you a ‘good one’ as you stroll down our cobblestone streets. And when the holidays roll around, we really turn on the charm! For a feel-good holiday romp through Savannah you’ll never forget, celebrate with us on Old Town Trolley’s Holiday Lights & Sights Tour!

We’ll whisk you away to the city’s historic homes and city squares dressed in their holiday best as carolers enliven the night with songs. Time-travel back to the 1820s to the Davenport House and see how Savannah’s earliest residents experienced the spirit of the season. Santa Claus will also be making a special appearance and you can even check out his other toy workshop firsthand!

A special stop at the historic Massie Heritage Center for some holiday treats rounds out a wonderful night out on the town!
