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.

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.

Our guide, Cameron, was knowledgeable, friendly and outgoing. Our tour was extensive and we enjoyed the mix of history, architecture and fun facts. We felt we knew a lot more about Savannah when we were die. We have also done Segway tours elsewhere, so this was a renewed, welcome and easy way to participate in our touring around the city.

This tour is a Savannah 'must'. Our group was celebrating my 40th birthday and this tour was on our first morning of the trip. The training was excellent. I felt confident once I got on the Segway and the experience just got better from there. Our tour guide, Chelsi, was excellent. The tour is a great overview of the city and you get to check out the city on a very fun mode of transportation. Five stars!
