Riding Tours In Savannah, GA

The majority of Savannah’s guided tours, numerically speaking, are of the walking variety, but probably its most popular (especially with first-time visitors) are the trolleys which tour the Historic District.

Trolley tours can offer a quick and easy way to get an overview of the city; more specialised minibus tours delving into specific areas of the city’s culture and past, such as its African-American history, are also available.

For the more adventurous, bike and segway tours of Savannah are another alternative.

Other tours that do not involve walking are available on several specialty topics: ghost stories, food and drink and Bonaventure Cemetery. See also: carriage tours
