Charleston and Savannah Eyre Bus Trip

Charleston and Savannah Eyre Bus Trip

Experience true Southern Charm in Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA!

March 30 - April 4, 2019    $1299.00 per person double

 

In Charleston, tour the famous historic district and experience the true Southern Charm and romantic atmosphere of the cobblestone alleys, historic houses, churches, gardens and fascinating museums.  Spend some time exploring in the City Market area of downtown followed by a carriage tour of the area. 

For tea lovers, we promise a once in a lifetime experience at the Charleston Tea Plantation. They are the only tea plantation in North America where you can see hundreds of thousands of tea bushes stretching out acre after acre for almost as far as the eye can see. After the trolley tour, you can walk the entire length of the tea production building where you can see all the equipment it takes to make tea and make tea purchases in the gift shop. In Savannah we tour the historic district which is arranged around Spanish-moss-swathed garden squares and boasts examples of just about every architectural style of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the cobbled waterfront on the Savannah River is edged by towering old cotton warehouses. Enjoy free time along River Street and try the delicious pralines. We leave Savannah and check into our oceanfront hotel on Tybee Island for two nights. We visit Tybee Island Light Station and Museum, Georgia’s oldest and tallest lighthouse before exploring the grounds of the museum. Don't forget about the Dolphin Watch Cruise we will be taking while we are there.  We leave Tybee Island for Beaufort to tour the historic district and visit the Parris Island Marine Base and Marine Museum.  Enjoy free time on your own for lunch and browsing in Historic Downtown Beaufort before heading to Fayetteville for our overnight.
