When groups visit beautiful Savannah, they’ll find several NTA-member offerings, from walking tours of Broughton Street to seeing the city from the water.

“Even though ours is an exquisitely preserved historical city, it’s important to know that we also have an abundance of new, interesting and interactive things for your groups to do,” says Visit Savannah’s Mindy Shea. “It’s now easier than ever to add exciting elements to your Savannah itinerary, proving that what’s old can indeed be new again!

Savannah Riverboat Cruises  Groups can get the ultimate Southern experience aboard the Georgia Queen or the Savannah River Queen. The chef will prepare beef starters and a bourbon ball dessert to accompany a selection of domestic cheeses. Passengers can enjoy a Savannah Lemonade, made with locally distilled sweet tea bourbon, or a Honeysuckle, made with Savannah honey and local bourbon. Shea says this pairs well with a visit to Chef Darin’s Cooking School, where groups can take 90-minute culinary classes.

Old Savannah Tours  Nearly 40 years of trolley tours have brought this company some of its latest specialty products, including Sip & Scavenge, an adult version of a scavenger hunt and a great team-building exercise, says the company’s Renae Scott. The Ghost in the Garden tour is an option for corporate and other tour groups with dinner at a haunted location. The trolley lets passengers off at the Owens-Thomas House and other spots after dark to hear stories from one of the city’s legendary “ghosts.”
