The "Welcome to savannah!" tour

For now, SAV Tours For Tips offers one standard general tour - the “Welcome to Savannah!” tour. This tour aims to provide an entertaining and educational introduction to the rich history of our beautiful city. Along our simple loop route through the very heart of the historic district you’ll get the inside story on five beautiful downtown squares and the old colonial cemetery. See several notable monuments and a few historic homes and learn the stories of the people who, in years past, walked these very streets. The route covers about 1.2 miles in total and the whole thing typically lasts approximately 1hr 45min.
