About

Join Old Town Trolley Tour's newest comedy tour – “Savannah for Morons”, a comedy show on wheels that roasts nearly 300 years of Savannah lore in 90 fun-filled minutes. A quirky, saucy and eccentric history lesson, perfect for morons and their (supposedly) smarter-ish friends, this tour features outrageously entertaining comedy skits, musical numbers, costume changes, a few absurd appearances, and loads of Savannah history.
Hosted by the infamous Moron Twins, Dannie and Danny Moron, this frolic around Savannah will give you all the inside gossip on practically every important moment that has transpired throughout Savannah’s deep, complex, and intoxicating (and intoxicated) past and present; from the founding of the colony of Georgia to the Civil War; from little known Paula Deen trivia to why every tourist must take a selfie on the Forrest Gump bench.
*Please Note: This tour is NOT recommended for children under the age of 13.

Itinerary

Beautiful Historic Downtown Savannah
The Independent Presbyterian Church of Savannah, on Bull Street in Savannah, Georgia, is the first Presbyterian church in Georgia, founded in 1755. Land for its first building was deeded by King George II of Great Britain for use by colonial adherents of the Church of Scotland. The Steeple of the Independent Presbyterian Church was where the feather was launched in the movie Forrest Gump.
Made Famous for movies filmed here
Wesley Monumental United Methodist Church has the distinction of being Savannah's first Methodist church. It was originally established in 1807.
The opening scene of the 1994 film Forrest Gump was filmed from the rooftop of the Sorrel–Weed House and is a popular tourist stop. It represents one of the finest examples of Greek Revival and Regency architecture in Savannah and was one of the first two homes in the State of Georgia to be made a State Landmark in 1954. At 16,000 square feet, it is also one of the largest houses in the city.
The house was the scene of the 1981 shooting death of Danny Hansford by the home's owner, Jim Williams, a story that is retold in the 1994 John Berendt book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The house is also featured in the movie adaptation of the book, released three years later.
The Green–Meldrim House is a historic house at 14 West Macon Street, on the northwest corner of Madison Square, in Savannah, Georgia. Built in 1853, it was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1976 as one of the American South's finest and most lavish examples of Gothic Revival architecture.

Famous Water fountain
The Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist is a Roman Catholic cathedral and minor basilica in Lafayette Square at 222 East Harris Street, Savannah, Georgia, in the United States. It is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Savannah.
