Full description
You’ll receive training on operating the Segway, fitted with a helmet and radio and then head out on the tour route with an experienced guide. Glide along the streets of Savannah for either 60 or 90 minutes, seeing some of the city’s most beautiful and mystifying historical sites. Visit sites where Union soldiers fought and see the home where General William T. Sherman stayed while in Savannah on his march to the sea. You’ll not only experience the rich history of Savannah but also the fun and modern side as well. You'll get to see the bench where Forrest Gump shared his box of chocolates. Ride around the sites from the movies, Forrest Gump, Something to Talk About, and The Conspirator. Stop and put yourself into the famous bus scene from Forrest Gump and learn a few Hollywood secrets that only the locals know about. See the lovely Mercer-Williams home from the famous book, and later the movie, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and hear the true story of Mr. Jim Williams. Savannah is known as one of the most haunted cities in America. Ride past some of the haunted homes and hear the stories of the homes and their ghostly residents. Continue on past a cemetery as your guide entertains you with stories related to it and hear which significant historic figure is buried there. The Segway allows you an effortless way to see the Spanish moss hanging from the majestic live oaks, and some of the ironwork found all around the city, such as iron street signs, bannisters, and even a beautiful wrought iron sunflower door. Admire the original antebellum architecture, the monuments, war cannons, and fountains that grace the beautiful squares throughout the city. The 90-minute tour option includes a visit to either the Harper Fowlkes House or the Webb Military Museum.

    We got to the meeting point early and they were very prompt to start. Everyone was extremely nice and excited to ride. If you are new to riding a Segway,, watching the included video is very helpful.. Our guide was Lisa and she made our tour fun and kept my 16 yr old engaged. If you get Lisa, you get the best! I highly recommend this outfit.

    My friend and I had the most amazing time on our tour with Neil! Since it was just the two of us, he showed us around to all the best local restaurants, bars, and shops which we later spent the rest of the day exploring! Would recommend taking this tour early in your stay in Savannah to get acquainted with the city and see as much as you can:) Absolutely one of the highlights of our trip and would recommend to anyone!

    This was a wonderful experience, we had never done segways before so they were very good at instructing us and it was so easy to operate. Our guide Carolyn was the best she was funny, excited and very informative. I would highly recommend doing this activity if you are ever visiting Savannah.
