      About this trip

      "One more day please" is what I usually hear with my two day trips to Savannah so here, it is - three days in Savannah!  
      You could spend a lifetime in historic Savannah and still not discover all of its secrets but this trip gives you an opportunity to try through a combination of planned activities and tours as well as "free lance" time.  

       One of the trip highlights is a night of hilarity from the famous and entertaining Savannah Bananas baseball team.   It is impossible to get tickets to this highly popular event but by golly, I got them!  You're guaranteed a good time whether or not you are a Baseball fan.  It's a sporting, cirque style, New Orleans vibe event that is so much fun!  The Bananas have become such a phenomena and have been featured on  ESPN, Fox Sports, CBS Sunday Morning or Access Hollywood to mention a few.  And you won't want to miss the cheerleaders "the Savannah Nana's"!     But if you are more inclined to enjoy a banana for breakfast rather than at a baseball game, the cost of the game will be deducted and the trip organizer will provide you with other evening alternatives.  

      Other plans include  a narrated trolley tour of the Historic District and a 2-Day Unlimted trolley shuttle so that you can explore on your own.   After all, there are only 22 historic squares to visit, each unique but home to beautiful southern homes, museums, historic churches and one of my favorites, the Prohibition Museum!  The tour also includes a stop at a Savannah "must see", The Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist 

      Our hotel, The Historic River Street Inn, not only provides wonderful riverfront views of the huge lumbering international cargo ships, but is situated in the heart of the Historic District for optimizing your visit.  

      By the second day,  you will really have a good idea of what you will want to enjoy before we go to the "sport's greatest show on earth" that evening.  The shuttle is at your disposal and you can get on and off at any of the 10 stops.     Your trip host will be your concierge with suggestions, maps and Visitor Guides.  A stroll down the famous Bull Street, a visit to the City Market, exploration of the Design District, an impressive art collection inside the walls of a southern mansion, the unique Prohibition Museum  or even a riverboat cruise are a few of the options.  You can even begin the day with an optional  two hour walking tour led by a storyteller of the famous Bonaventure Cemetery.    This has been voted one of the top 10 most beautiful cemeteries in the world and the subject of author John Berendt's book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil". 

      Plus food is always a fun part of travel and you will find no shortage of restaurants for all budgets within walking distance of the hotel.  

      Night owls take note too - Savannah has vibrant music venues close to the hotel!

      Payment Policy

      Please note that you have payment options.  1.  Credit card but there is a fee. 2.  ACH bank draft - no fee or 3.  Venmo or 4.  You can send Patty a check.  If you choose to do this, please email me at or call 404-791-3166.  A $300 deposit is required at time of registration and final payment is due on April 25.

      Cancellation Policy

      If you need to cancel, a full refund is available up until 30 days prior to departure.  After that time, refunds are dependent on the ability to rebook the reservation.  

      What if it rains?

      Savannah does experience "pop-up" storms but it is rare that the entire game is cancelled.  The philosophy is that the "show must go on" even if the Banana Ball entertainment is shortened or delayed.  Our "open seating" tickets offer seating under cover.

      I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!


      Super trip! Patty and her bus driver Donny are wonderful! Patty always gives us a great time with snacks on the way, water bottles throughout the day to keep us hydrated. The homes, gardens and historic sites we saw were well worth it. A great day trip. Be sure to see Beaufort, NC.

      Patty always runs a first class trip. Luxury coach, snack and water; rest area stops on longer trips. Patty provides tons of information in advance on the trip itself and area. Always enjoy her trips!

      We had a wonderful time. Met some great people from other communities and enjoyed the bus ride, as well as the accommodations, tours and eateries. Patty is a great host with lots of helpful advice, attention to our needs, and tips for travel. We look forward to another trip with Patty in the future!! Deb & Mark Delekto
