Daily Itinerary


You’ll depart on the bus for your trip. The bus should arrive 15 minutes prior to this departure time.

You will meet your tour manager.

Once you arrive in Savannah, you’ll have free time to  explore Broughton Street, a quaint section of town that provides a multitude of shops, restaurants and scenery.

You will take a break for lunch (not included).

You’ll hop on board a trolley for a tour of Savannah. Known for its impressive 18th and 19th century architecture, Savannah boasts over 1,700 restored buildings, each with its own story to tell. Travel back to the Civil War era as you visit the Green-Meldrim House, a Gothic revival style building which once served as General Sherman’s headquarters. You’ll also see the beautiful Mercer-Williams House, the Andrew Low House (home to the founder of Girl Scouts USA), and the Flannery O’Connor House.

Then you’ll visit the Savannah History Museum, located within the historic Central of Georgia Railway train shed, for a glimpse into Savannah’s past. The story starts in 1733 and covers the American Revolution, the Civil War, the Industrial Revolution and beyond. The exhibits also highlight the City’s musical, cultural, and artistic contributions.

Finally, enjoy an evening of food, entertainment, and an unforgettable view of Savannah on a Riverboat cruise!

You’ll arrive at your hotel and check in.


You’ll have breakfast.

You’ll take a guided tour of Old Fort Jackson. Named after Revolutionary War hero James Jackson, the fort was built to defend the port of Savannah from attack from the river. During the administration of President Thomas Jefferson, the United States began building a series of coastal fortifications, including Fort Jackson, to provide for the defense of major rivers and harbors along the East Coast.

You’ll take a guided tour of Bonaventure Cemetery. Though not Savannah’s oldest cemetery, the Bonaventure Cemetery is certainly the most famous in Savannah. Quintessentially Southern Gothic, its haunting beauty has captured the imaginations of writers, poets, naturalists, photographers, and filmmakers for more than 150 years. Part natural cathedral, part sculptural garden, you transcend time on this Bonaventure Cemetery Tour.

You will take a break for lunch (not included).

You’ll visit the Massie Heritage Center, which strives to create a greater appreciation of Savannah’s rich cultural heritage through preservation of the historic Massie School. The Center has been converted into an interactive exhibit space and educational facility where both students and the general public can participate in interpretive programs that are designed to stimulate curiosity and to help achieve academic goals.

Next you’ll visit Forsyth Park, the largest park in historic Savannah and a hub of social interaction in the city. Perhaps the most well known feature of Forsyth Park is the large fountain that sits at the north end.

You’ll enjoy a buffet dinner at Vics On The River.

This evening you’ll head out for a fun and enlightening walking ghost tour to explore the haunting legends and creepy tales of Savannah. Even the skeptics in your group will enjoy this tour!

You’ll return to your hotel for the evening.


You’ll have breakfast.

You’ll visit Fort Pulaski, where you’ll follow in the footsteps of revolutionary thinkers, great engineering minds, and fearless commanders on a guided tour.

You’ll visit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center, which is devoted to cultivating a responsible stewardship of coastal Georgia’s natural resources through education, conservation, and research.

You will take a break for lunch (not included).

You’ll have the amazing opportunity to take a guided beach ecology tour with marine biologist, Dr. Joe Richardson, who has over 30 years of experience in teaching about the animals and ecology of coastal Georgia.

Your final stop in Savannah will be the Tybee Island Light Station. Built by order of General James Oglethorpe in 1732, the Tybee Island Light Station has been guiding mariners safely into the Savannah River for over 270 years. One of America’s best-preserved light stations, it features 178 stairs and a First Order Fresnel Lens (nine feet tall).

You’ll board your bus and begin the return trip home.
