USA Travel: Sights from Old Savannah Historic Overview Trolley Tour in Savannah, Georgia

Reading Time: 3 minutes

In this post we share photos from our time on the Old Savannah Historic Overview Trolley Tour. This locally owned-and-operated tour company has been voted Best Trolley Tour every year since 2003.

Savannah’s heat and humidity makes it difficult to walk all day, so this ride offers a 90-minute snapshot of the city’s best sights and historical markers. The trolley brings you to 16 stops through the heart of downtown Savannah, with a lively driver and period actors providing historical details set against beautiful squares, architecture and streets.
