Savannah is one of the most romantic cities in the United States. It's historic downtown district is filled with towering oak trees, horse-drawn carriages and dramatic antebellum mansions that survived General Sherman's fiery march to the sea during the Civil War.

Get an old-fashioned dose of Savannah’s southern charm on a horse-drawn carriage ride through the city’s historic district. Take your seat in the vintage ride and explore oak-lined avenues, grand mansions, and elegant public squares as your driver shares insight into Savannah's fascinating history, from antebellum days through the Civil War and into the modern era.

Foodies know that sampling the local fare is one of the best ways to enjoy a city’s culture. Get a feel for Savannah, known as the “Hostess City of the South”, as your tour guide connects the area’s history to the culinary scene by taking you to up to six specially selected foodie spots. Enjoy samples at eateries such as one of Savannah’s favorite seafood restaurants, an award-winning honey store, a traditional Scottish Pub, a cozy ‘20s speakeasy-style space and the oldest butcher shop in Savannah.
