Departing from Telfair Square, two-hour historical strolls cover up to 1.5 miles as visitors hear tales of famous areas and historical homes while passing sites such as The Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist and Chippewa Square, where portions of Forrest Gump were filmed. Meanwhile, the Savannah Spirits tours spends 90 minutes exploring haunted locales such as Colonial Park Cemetery as guides relay tales of voodoo, ghost sightings and demons exorcised from peaches. Lastly, 90-minute Savannah Haunted Pubs excursions traipse through story-clad drinking establishments such as Molly MacPherson's Scottish Pubs, where patrons 21 and older can down spirits before learning about the other kind.

    Local author Robert Edgerly is a virtual storybook as he spins old tales of Savannah on his walking tours. He waxes both historical and folklorical on subjects from the evolution of the city's 19th-century ironwork and architecture to the verifiable histories of its many ghosts. He carefully constructs his stories without non-historical padding. Each tale is the product of his extensive research, even tracking down eyewitnesses to local supernatural happenings to lend credence and color to his stories.

  • Savannah Bike Tours
    Mounted atop a fleet of two-wheeled city seers, Savannah Bike Tours' groups glide past scenery on two-hour guided tours. Cruising at an easy pace through Savannah's quiet side streets, broad boulevards, and picturesque historic district, city-licensed guides answer questions and expound upon architecture, botany, local history, and glory tales of the bicycle's predecessor—the gravy train with biscuit wheels. As the tour rolls by points of interest, such as the emerald landscape of Forsyth Park, stops are made to accommodate the numerous photo opportunities that present themselves. Helmets and bicycles are included in the cost of the tour, though tourers can choose to bring their own pedal-powered two-wheeler and hollowed-out coconut shell.

  • Capturing Savannah
    As charmingly anachronistic as trolleys may be, they move too fast for Pablo Aguilar, one of Capturing Savannah’s co-founders. So to capture the colors, lines, and ornamentation of Savannah’s 19th-century architectural wonders, he prefers to walk, leading groups on tours that blend the historical entertainment of a city tour with the skill set of a photography safari. While ducking into 200-year-old nooks along Factors Walk, a onetime commerce area, Pablo and co-founder Brittany Nelson teach aspiring shutterbugs to take photos with “a clear purpose behind the shot.” The pair coach tour members to find aesthetically pleasing angles and to thoughtfully compose their images before shooting. Along with technique, they try to instill “a sense of nostalgia” in each photographer. “It’s all about the feeling,” Pablo says, “expressing the same feeling they felt [when they took] the photograph.” Pablo and Britt previously lived in New York, Chicago, Austin, New England, and the Middle East, but both have fallen for the vibrancy and artistry Savannah draws from its history. For a glimpse of the city as seen through a lens at foot-speed, Capturing Savannah offers a gallery of Pablo and Britt’s tour photos.

  • Amphibian Air
    The FAA–certified Cygnet II–powered hang glider bearing the Amphibian Air stamp gives riders a bird's-eye view of Savannah and the outlying Low Country as they zip about during guided lessons. An FAA–certified instructor takes the front seat in the trike's open-air cockpit directly ahead of the student and demonstrates the basics of flying before allowing his pupil to take the controls if conditions permit. A certificate of training documents the flight for the student, which can be used toward a sport-pilot license. Amphibian Air recommends wearing comfortable clothing and making reservations for sunrise or sunset any day of the week, as those are some of the best times for a smooth flight.
