As long as you’re visiting Georgia’s First City, why not tour her in a style in harmony with her history – a horse drawn carriage. The slow and steady pace set by old Doc takes you back to a time when ladies were elegant, men were gallant, and horses ruled.
The clip-clop sound of the horse’s shoes on cobblestones serves as the soundtrack as your driver spins tales, spreads stories, and relives the history we learned from schoolbooks.
Horse-drawn carriage companies operating in Savannah run tours that last about 50 minutes. Carriage styles range from elegant ‘Cinderella’ buggies imported from Europe to bench-style wagons with canopies.
The narrated tours cover the Historic District’s major landmarks. These tours run all day, every day, year around and usually depart from various locations around the Historic District.
Some companies also offer haunted tours that will creep you into the chilling side of the city’s eerie history. You might even have a guide dressed in era costuming. For the romantic occasion, there are private tours for two, some even offer champagne.
So let old Doc – or Harley – carry you away and see the historic South the way she is meant to be seen.
