What people are saying about Madison Square

It was a most enjoyable experience riding the trolley. The stops were very convenient for us to get on and hop off to explore the different areas. The first time on the trolley we rode it all the way around to all the stops. We then had a better idea of where we wanted to start our exploring.

Cindy our driver was so knowledgeable and friendly. She greeted each passenger when arrived and ascertained their destinations. She was attentive to reminding each passenger as arriving at each destination. I learned a lot fir my first visit to Savannah.

Crew was amazing including Big Scott. Made something that could be boring into something hysterical. Worth the $$.

Our guide was very knowledgeable; offered fun facts about the sites; and allowed visitors to ask questions.

Super fun and the family loved it. Easy to do for ALL ages! The guide was great!!
