Full description

Embark on a multi-day trip to Charleston and Savannah for a treat of Southern charm and hospitality. Over 3 nights in Charleston and 2 nights in Savannah, you’ll tour Fort Sumter and Boone Hall Plantation, catch a scenic evening train to Savannah, and visit all the main sights on a city bus tour.

Begin your trip in Charleston by spending some time shopping in one of the largest historical districts in the US. See why the city is dubbed the "Holy City" and a "living museum" by noticing the tall church spires and gothic architecture that make the streets unique.

On day 2, board the ferry at Charleston Harbor for a guided tour of Fort Sumter. Walk around the man-made island and learn about its role in the civil war. Return to the mainland for a carriage tour of the historic district and a walking tour to Patriots Point, Rainbow Row, Colonial Lake, and more.

Day three takes you through 300 years of living history with a tour of Boone Hall Plantation. Discover the region's colonial history and see how life has changed through the centuries.

Enjoy some free time on day 4 to return to your favorite sites and relax in the public parks, before catching an Amtrak train in the evening to Savannah, Georgia.

Ride the hop-on hop-off bus around Savannah City on day 5 to see all the top landmarks and beautiful tree-lined streets. Learn about the importance of River Street, City Market, Forsyth Park, Waving Girl, and the churches and Synagogue to locals and tourists alike.

Use your free time on the final day to find the famous park bench from "Forest Gump" and scenes from "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil". See moss-draped oaks, spectacular fountains, cobblestoned streets by the river, and colorful public squares that earned Savannah the title of “Garden City”.

With transport and accommodation all taken care of, all that’s left for you to do is make some memories.
