We often suggest that first-time Savannah visitors take a trolly tour. These tours are designed to give you a comprehensive view of the entire historic district. All of the tour companies offer an "On/Off" experience, allowing each guest to return to specific places of interest at their leisure. Be sure to bring a pen to mark your interests along the way.
