When planning your trip to Georgia’s first city, be sure to plan for transportation to and from all the attractions and sights. Here’s a guide to the top ways to get around Savannah.
The Old Town Trolley Tour is the ideal way to see the best of the city without the hassle of finding a taxi, taking a bus or searching for parking. This fully narrated tour offers you unlimited hop-on and hop-off opportunities, making it easy to see all the sights at your own pace. They also give you the flexibility to stretch your tour out over two days, so there’s no need to rush through all the beauty and history of Savannah.
Aboard the trolley, you can relax as you’re transported to more than 100 points of interest.
