Full description
After meeting your guide at Savannah’s visitor center, hop into the convertible van to begin your 90-minute tour through the historic center. The wind in your hair, admire the lush foliage and victorian mansions as you cruise around town. With an expert guide to take you through the cultural significance of each sight, you’ll gain priceless local insight into the city’s history, stretching back to the 18th century.

Afterwards, you’ll hop onto a riverboat for a 90-minute venture down the Savannah River to experience the river that was — and remains — the lifeblood of Savannah. Hear the Captain’s intriguing tales and historic facts about Savannah’s modern port and the ships that visit from all over the world. Then head down to Old Fort Jackson, the oldest standing brick fort in Georgia, which holds one of the largest and oldest original artillery pieces in the country.

With the city’s skyline spread before you, don’t miss out on innumerable photo-ops. If you need a snack or something to wet your whistle, pick up something from the well appointed riverboat snack shop. After the tour, you’ll cruise back to the dock, enriched by the wide range of beautiful and historical sights that Savannah has to offer. Additionally, the tour has drop-off options to suit your needs, with transportation available to Historic District hotels, City Market, or the Savannah Visitor's Center.

The land tour was great, our tour guide really new her history and it was very educational. The bus was perfect as it wasn't too big so we all could see the sights. We then took the riverboat cruise which was an enjoyable boat ride but if I had a choice, would skip next time. Overall it was a good experience and Savannah is a beautiful city!
