While much of Savannah’s most popular districts are fairly walkable, by far the most time-efficient way to see the entire city is booking tickets for a hop-on hop-off bus tour.

Affording you with the freedom and flexibility to board buses at designated stops at your own pace, hop-on hop-off tours are a great way to see lots of a city all in one go. If you’re planning a trip to the picturesque Georgia coastal city of Savannah and like the idea of making use of its extensive bus network at your leisure, we’ve compared the two companies offering hop-on hop-off bus tours below.

Old Town Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour

Run by Historic Tours of America, the Old Town Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley tours are available as either 1 or 2-day tickets, meaning you don’t have to squeeze your exploration into a single day. Tickets entitle you to board or disembark at a choice of 15 stops conveniently located close to many of Savannah’s main landmarks and places of interest. Along the way, you can listen to live narration by conductors filled with information about the historic city. As an extra perk, with your tickets you can also enjoy discount coupons to multiple city-wide attractions and restaurants. From $28 per person.

If you only plan to spend a single day exploring by bus, then the Hop-On Hop-Off Historic Trolley Tour is available as a full-day ticket only. Operated by Old Savannah Tours, passengers can enjoy lively and entertaining narration courtesy of costumed guides who will regale you with fun tales and facts about the city as you pass along its streets. You can board the trolley at any of 14 centrally-located stops, with buses running 7 days a week from 9am to 4.30pm and on a 15-20 minute departure schedule. From $35 per person.
