AboutExplore Savannah offers several tour options.
HISTORY & HOUSE TOUR - the best of both worlds. This is a great overview tour covering almost 300 years of history, and a tour of the Green-Meldrim House, used as Sherman's Headquarters on his March to the Sea. This house was completed in 1853, and is a beautiful example of Southern Gothic architecture in the south. One of our favorite parts about this tour, is you can have a seat in any of the period furniture. The rooms are not roped off and there isn't the 'no-touch' rule. This house has furniture dating back 1,000 years, and yes, you can sit in it!
HISTORIC WOMEN OF SAVANNAH TOUR - Let’s hear it for the Girls! Grab a to-go cup, expose those ankles, lose the corset and discover the sisters of yesterday, who paved the way. On this tour you will learn about the independent, strong-willed ladies of Savannah who rose above status-quo of what was ‘expected’ of them, those women who truly made a difference.
As for the men that you are enticing to bring on this tour — no worries, there is enough information and history to keep them intrigued as well.
As we end this tour in Washington Square, pop into the Pacci, during Happy Hour for a “Mary Musgrove,” created exclusively for this tour. (Drinks are $5, and not included in the price of the tour).
HISTORIC SAVANNAH TOUR - Begins in Wright Square and takes you on a stroll down Bull St. to Forsyth Park. This tour covers the history of Savannah, beginning back when General Oglethorpe first stepped off the boat to establish our beautiful city. I wonder if he dreamed it would become what she has today!
