For an overview of sights and history in Savannah, you can ride through the 90 minute tour. But we recommend you take advantage of the ‘Hopper Pass’ and spend as much time as you like at any of the 16 stops on the tour. With either a one-day or two-day pass, you can hop off and on the trolley as you like, and see the Savannah historic sights your way.
The trolley ride itself is a treat of historic flavor, and a delightful way to travel to the many fascinating and historical stops on the tour. Its good to start at the Visitor’s Center, which is housed in an historic railway station. Hop off and on as you visit places of architectural and historical significance, such as the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, dating to 1840, built in the Antebellum Greek Revival/Regency style, the Owen Thomas House completed in 1819 and now open as a museum showcasing the English Regency design and displaying antiquities from 1750 – 1830. Learn the history of the Girl Scouts at the birthplace of Founder Julliette Gordon Lowe.
You’ll see parks and markets and the oldest theater in the US, the Historic Savannah Theater which is still producing nightly shows. There is so much to see on this tour, you will probably need two days to see it. The two-day Hopper Pass will give you plenty of time.
