When you visit Savannah, you’ll want to give yourself plenty of time to see the best that the city has to offer. You can start by taking your own walking tour, starting from the front door of our historic bed and breakfast inn. We’re located in the heart of downtown Savannah, surrounded by restaurants, shops, galleries, museums, and more.
If you’d like to prefer a commercial Savannah tour, the tour company meeting locations are all less than a 10-minute walk from our bed and breakfast. Or, most (but not all) of the Savannah tour companies will come pick you up at the Foley House Inn.
