This Tour's Itinerary
Board your spacious, video and restroom equipped Motorcoach and head toward beautiful Savannah, Georgia for a four-night stay! This evening, enjoy a leisurely Dinner and check into a Savannah area hotel.
After a Continental Breakfast you will start your journey with a GUIDED TROLLEY TOUR OF SAVANNAH, the “Belle of Georgia.” You'll see extraordinary architectural marvels, beautiful oak-lined streets and lovely “town squares.” You will then have Hop-On/Hop-Off Privileges on the TROLLEY for the rest of the day. Enjoy free time on historic River Street, featuring unique 18th century “ballast stone” streets and 19th century cotton warehouses that are now home to fine eateries, unusual shops and antique galleries. You'll also visit the FIRST AFRICAN BAPTIST CHURCH. Constituted in 1777, it is the oldest African American Church in North America. See historic elements that have allowed the congregation to preserve much of its rich history. Tonight, you'll enjoy Dinner with Entertainment before returning to your hotel for the evening.
After enjoying a Continental Breakfast, you will depart for a GUIDED TOUR OF ST. SIMONS ISLAND. Take a stroll among moss-draped oaks or shop at the interesting boutiques and specialty shops in the historic area. Later, you'll take a GUIDED TRAM TOUR OF JEKYLL ISLAND.
See how the nation's wealthiest citizens like J.P. Morgan and William Rockefeller lived and played – including a stop at what was once the exclusive “Millionaires Club.” After Dinner, you'll enjoy an evening show at the FAMOUS SAVANNAH THEATRE, then return to your hotel to rest for the next fun-filled day.
Today, after a Continental Breakfast, enjoy a GUIDED TOUR OF MAGNIFICENT BEAUFORT, SC - “Queen of the Carolina Sea Islands”. Beaufort's history dates as far back as the 1500's. Its striking mansions and scenery served as the backdrop for several major motion pictures including “The Big Chill” and “Forrest Gump”.
You'll also visit historic Penn Center (the site of one of the country's first schools for freed slaves) on St. Helena Island and learn the history of "Gullah", a Creole form of English. Tonight, enjoy a nice Dinner before returning to your hotel for the evening.
Today, after enjoying a Continental Breakfast, you will depart for home... a perfect time to chat with your friends about all the fun things you've done, the great sights you've seen, and where your next group trip will take you!
