What’s a visit to Savannah without a trolley tour? It is an easy way to get a feel for the city in a short amount of time. Southern Belle Vacation Rentals partners with Old Savannah Trolley Tours (the white trolleys) and Old Town Trolley (the orange and green trolleys). What do you need to know? We’re glad you asked.  

Get Trolley Tickets

Book a tour online with Old Savannah Tours or Old Town Trolley. You can also buy tickets at the Savannah Visitor Center, 301 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. or a kiosk in City Market or on River Street. Tickets range from $16 (for children) to over $70, depending on the tour. 

Where You Go

The Hop On - Hop Off Trolley is the most popular of the Old Savannah Tours. Riders leave from the Old Savannah Tours Visitor’s Center, 215 W. Boundary St., and wind through the Historic District, with stops at major attractions and city squares. Old Town Trolley Tours’s one-day tour allows passengers to hop on and off. Both companies offer Ghost Tours, and Old Town Trolley recently added the Savannah for Morons tour, a 90-minute comedy show on wheels.  

Fun for Everyone

Specialty tours bring history to life with re-enactors who appear along the way to weave tales of the city and its famous inhabitants. In the case of ghost tours, expect scary tales about spooks and spirits that roam the city’s streets and squares. Kids four and under ride free. 

Knowledgeable Guides

Trolley tour guides know the Historic District inside and out. Expect to learn something new about Savannah, even if you are a frequent visitor. 

A Great Overview

A trolley tour in Savannah gets visitors to some top sites without walking the entire Historic District. You will pass attractions, restaurants, and popular shopping spots. Feel free to hop off and catch the next trolley or stay on board and return at your leisure. 

Convenient Stops

Both companies make stops at popular spots like Forsyth Park, Franklin Square, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, and River Street Marketplace. Other stops vary, but on Old Town Trolley they include City Market, the Lucas Theatre, The Waving Girl statue, Davenport House, Colonial Park Cemetery and Bull Street Corridor. Old Savannah Tour stops include Massie Heritage Center, Telfair Academy/Jepson Center, the Old City Exchange Bell, The Pirates’ House restaurant and Savannah Theatre. 

Frequent Stops

Trolleys run every 15 minutes, so you never have to wait long for the next one.

An added benefit is that some stops will be within walking distance of your Savannah vacation rental.
