Oh Historic Savannah, how can we tour thee? Let us explore the ways. Ever wonder why it is a knowledgeable local tour guide can make a high profile historic travel destination come alive unlike your own personalized adventure tour, armed with nothing more than a few travel magazines. We believe we have the answer to that question for Georgia’s Historic First City founded in 1733. It is doubtful that you will find a greater diversity of tours on virtually any tour conveyances you can think of in as concentrated an area as Savannah’s Landmark Historic District. Whether you choose to walk, ride or bike the 2.5 square mile garden square district, this top ten walking city is chock full of a wealth of scenic points of interest and historic tour attractions.
Our important port city’s role dating back to the earliest days of American pre-colonial era history has a colorful heritage story to be told that can best be imparted by the consummately professional tour guides that ply our cobblestone streets and stately garden squares. The vibrancy of these many historic icons and the stirrings they evoke speak to “The Hostess City’s” natural beauty, our hospitable southern heritage, striking architectural wonders ensconced within our well preserved antebellum era Old South Historic City.
Take a two hour climate controlled trolley tours or enclosed motor coach throughout the district. Hop off one trolley, explore a specific area, and snag the next trolley fifteen minutes later all day long. Look for a more romantic pace in the back of a pedicab or on a private buggy ride through the historic district. Take a ghost tour of America’s Most Haunted City on foot, by trolley car, horse drawn carriage, or in a hearse. If you miss one of Savannah’s Tour of Homes held twice annually, there is always other architectural treasures such as the Sorrel-Weed House, Owens-Thomas House, or The Mercer-Williams House made famous in Midnight of the Garden of Good and Evil. Speaking of movies, Savannah Movie Tours is the premier movie tour company in the district. And don’t forget everybody’s favorite source of down home cooking in the part of the country that gave America southern fried cooking, take the Paula Deen Tour or customize any of the other Culinary Arts Attractions around any of the Cooking School classes that Savannah has to offer.. Get tired of pounding our brick lined streets, tour the Savannah River on one of two stern wheel Paddle Boats from their River Street mooring.
