The Best Way To Tour Savannah Is ……

May 7, 2015 by Teresa Jacobson

The best way to tour Savannah is your way!

We’ve heard it said that the refreshingly slow pace of Savannah can be attributed to a handful of things.  The 22 squares throughout the Historic District slow the traffic down significantly.  Once you’ve slowed down, you start to look around and can’t help being mesmerized by the beauty and charm of moss draped oaks and stunning historic architecture.  Then, there are all the people walking around that the city has given the right of way to cross the street every few blocks.   And if you’ve ever gotten behind a horse and carriage, you know that you aren’t getting anywhere in a hurry, but the view sure is beautiful.  Might as well take it all in.

There are many distinctly different ways to see Savannah.  Depending on your pace or interests, a visitor can choose to see Savannah in a way that gives them the ideal experience.

Historic Savannah Carriage Tours

Historic Savannah Carriage Tours

A trolley tour is probably the most popular in the Historic District.  If you prefer to sit back and relax driving through the District, Old Savannah Tours has the most experienced tour guides that are sure to inform and entertain you.  They also offer a variety of different touring options from their Historic Overview tour, Fort tour, and Ghost tours.

Step back in time on a carriage tour through Savannah’s Historic District.  The slow pace of the horses gives you ample time to take in the sites and their stories as you make you way around Savannah’s squares.  Historic Savannah Carriage Tours has fantastic guides that bring the cities storied past to life.

The ample green space of Savannah’s squares and the shade of the oaks makes the perfect landscape for a walking tour.  There are many brilliant and experienced walking tour guides in Savannah, but the Azalea Inn picks are; Old City Walks, Historic Savannah by Foot with Jack Wray, and the always popular in seersucker, Savannah Dan.   Azalea is happy to arrange for a guide to come to the Inn to begin your tour right from our front door.

Some visitors enjoy being on the move, still having control of where they stop and go.  For that, you can pedal through history on a bicycle with Savannah Bike Tours, on a scooter with Vespa Savannah , or glide around the squares with Segway of Savannah.

 

For some, what you see is just as or more important than how you see it.   Savannah’s history, beauty, and charm pave the way for enthusiasts of all kinds to be enthralled with Savannah.  Tour Savannah’s notorious haunted past with Cobblestone Tour or Blue Orb.  Savannah is known as one of America’s most haunted cities and ghost tours around town don’t disappoint.  Capturing Savannah has tours for the budding or professional photographer.  They will guide you and your camera to capture the most stunning scenes and details of Savannah.

 

Our friend Jonathan Stalcup leads Architectural Tours of Savannah and is fantastic!!  Savannah’s historic architecture is a huge part of the city’s charm and Jonathan knows more than anyone we know!  Savannah has landed itself on the map in recent years as a destination for great food.  Savannah Taste Experience offers a unique culinary experience through bites and tastings at distinctive restaurants and specialty food stores.  Notorious for its open container policy, Savannah can happy hour with the best of them.  Savvy Savannah Tours will show you where the best martinis are all over town.  Savannah has been a Hollywood movie set many, many times.  Savvy will take you to Forrest Gump’s bench, Jim William’s home that was featured in The Garden of Good and Evil, and then treat you to ice cream at nationally known Leopold’s!
