Old Savannah Tours & Olglethorpe Trolley Tours

Both of these companys offer an "on & off tour" but one is $10 and the other is $23. Does anyone know the difference between the two?

Old Savannah Tours gives a 90 minute tour of the Historic District.

Oglethorpe Tours gives a 90 minute tour of the Historic District.

Old Savannah Tours makes 14 stops along the tour route where people can climb on and off the trolley, then climb back on later on another trolley until 5:30pm.

Oglethorpe Tours - you stay on the trolley the entire 90 minutes. You don't make stops. When the tour is over, you get unlimited on-off service to 11 stops in the Historic District until 5:30pm.

Old Town Trolley is also out there - they operate their on-off service the same way Old Savannah does.

Many people don't mind paying more because they prefer getting on and off during the tour. For others, that's not so important.

The reason there is a price difference is because of the quantity of people carried. Each time Oglethorpe Tours begins a tour, all the passengers are new paying customers. Each time Old Savannah and Old Town start a tour, half the seats are filled with people who payed on an earlier tour, and are riding as part of the on-off program.

All tour guides for all companies in Savannah are licensed and provide you with the same information. No matter which company you choose, you should be happy with your tour.
