We boarded this tour at the Savannah Visitors Center. The tour was approximately 90 minutes and covered the historic district and Victorian district.

We got out of the trolley by the Colonial Park Cemetery. During the trolley ride, Gail showed us photographs of the people that "haunt" the area. It was an interesting twist to hear about a ghost story and then get to see a picture of who supposedly does the haunting! The trolley was equipped with flat-screen monitors. The tour lasted about 90 minutes. The Oglethorpe BLUE Trolley is the one we will always look for when we go back to Savannah.
