Unique Tours in Savannah
Hop On/Hop Off
A trolley tour is the classic way to see the Historic District of Savannah. Hop on board with Old Savannah Tours, voted the best trolley tour each year since 2003. Or, book with Old Town Trolley Tours, which offers one or two day unlimited re-boarding at 15 stops. A trolley tour is a great chance to get the feel of the city while getting transportation to top tourist destinations.
Cruise the River
Cool off onboard a Savannah Riverboat Cruise. Since 1991, the company has taken visitors on the paddle-driven riverboats for a look at Savannah from the river. They offer an array of cruises including dinner, brunch, lunch, Gospel music, moonlight and sunsets. Enjoy the evening breeze on the open-air top deck patio. Some cruises offer dancing or entertainment.
Take a spirited pub tour for a taste of Savannah nightlife combined with tales of its history and ghosts. Explore the city’s shadowy past on the Haunted Savannah Pub Crawl or the Original Creepy Crawl Haunted Pub Tour. Both are sure to get your heart pumping.
Take It Easy
If you prefer a more active pub crawl, or in this case, ride, check out one of the multi-person bike tours. Savannah Slow Ride Pub Crawl and Savannah Pedals each offer two-hour adventures to some of Savannah’s classic watering holes on a 15-person bike. Participants must be 21 and over.
Take a Segway tour of the Historic District, Tybee Island, Savannah’s cemeteries or our famous movie sites with Adventure Tours in Motion. The 60-minute tour around the Historic District is an exhilarating way to travel through the beautiful squares. The company also offers e-bike tours and rentals.
Go by Sea
Get out of the city and onto the water with Moon River Kayak Tours. You’ll see the area from a completely different viewpoint while paddling through a beautiful Lowcountry estuary. The guided tour explores the marshes of Skidaway Narros and Moon River and includes a walk on an uninhabited island. Paddlers have been known to spot dolphins, so keep an eye open.
While the pub tours are adult-only, the other tours are family-friendly activities. So whether you’re taking a summer vacation with kids or a weekend trip with friends, you’ll enjoy these unique tours in Savannah.
