While we like our Tour Partners in both Savannah and Charleston
here at Savannah Getaways we would be remiss if we did not point you towards the burgeoning world of the self catered Walking Tour as a viable option for you do it yourselfer's. We have recently started a collaborative relationship with a local company that is offering inexpensive downloadable tours of both Sister City's Historic District for those that prefer to roll their own.
Burton Sauls and City Trex is growing their selection of touring options and if their reviewer's comments tell us anything, these tours can only grow in the months ahead in variety and scope.
CityTrex iPod tour users say:
"Keep growing. You're awesome!"
"Cool tales, solid info, loved setting my own pace"
"I made new friends because of the tour, thanks!"
The Charleston Post and Courier spoke of their "Holy City" walking tour start up operation a few years back.
Check out their City Trex website, suscribe to their podcast and get a sense of the quality tours that are yours for the asking in either city. As they say on their site above:
"CityTrex MP3 Audio Walking Tours provide Self-guided walking tours that are one more authentic way to explore
Savannah’s Landmark Historic District or the Battery in Historic Charleston. Feel the freedom in going solo. Create quality time for couples - a half-day with the grandkids or a hand-holding date for romantics (two can tour for the price of one)."
