Full description

Glide along the streets of Savannah on a guided tour for either 60 or 90 minutes, seeing some of the city’s most beautiful and mystifying historical sites.

Receive training on operating the Segway, get fitted with a helmet and radio, and then head out on the tour route with an experienced guide. 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. Experience the rich history of Savannah while also getting to see the fun and modern side.

See the bench where Forrest Gump shared his box of chocolates. Put yourself into the famous bus scene from Forrest Gump and learn a few Hollywood secrets that only the locals know about.

Ride around the sites from other movies including Something to Talk About, and The Conspirator.

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 their ghostly residents.

Continue on past a cemetery as your guide entertains you with stories and reveals 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, banisters, 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.

Jason was very patient and as I panicked when getting on the Segway he kindly offered that I take a bike. I felt very thankful. My husband did the Segway as planned and we both had fun on the tour while learning lots of interesting facts. A great tour when you arrive in town as it also helps you understanding the different highlights to visit downtown.

If you have never visited Savannah before do yourself a favor and take this Segway tour. It was fantastic. One of the most pleasurable experiences my wife and I have had on a vacation. The tour guide has a very good historic appreciation for the city, and you are able to see all the key sites in one hour from a ground level perspective.

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.
