HISTORICAL BIKE TOUR
Historical Bike Tour
TOUR DESCRIPTION

Savannah is one of America's most beautiful towns, and we would love to help you explore it like a local. After meeting at our shop located off of Savannah's beautiful Forsyth Park, we will set everyone up with a bike based on your height, comfort, and preference to ensure an enjoyable ride around the Hostess City.

This bike tour covers the most popular sites around Savannah's Historic District over a flat, easy to enjoy route. Our experienced, local tour guides will take you to the Mercer-Williams House; the actual site of events described in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

From there, we'll see the enchanting squares of Savannah and learn about the Hamilton-Turner Home (and some of its ghostly inhabitants!). We'll also see the Green-Meldrim House, which once served as General Tecumseh Sherman's Headquarters. Finally, we'll visit Chippewa Square, site of Forrest Gump's bus stop.

These are just a few of the many sights and stories we'll share with you on our tour, with plenty photo opportunities along the way. After the tour you can sign up to rent your bikes for the rest of the day to continue exploring this beautiful city at your leisure. Your guide will offer key knowledge of where to ride and what streets to avoid in order to make the most of your time in Savannah.
