Savannah Tour Pass, where Time + Money – Stress = Value.
Keith Simmons had a number of good reasons to start Tour Pass in 2018. Cities like New York, Boston and Chicago had been operating with all-inclusive passes for years, he already had connections and a firm grasp on tourism in his hometown of Charleston, and travel was changing. “The way people move through the world now is different than it was even just ten years ago,” he says. The fundamental goal of Tour Pass was to simplify travel, make it stress free. “It’s easy to get overwhelmed,” he says. “Searching for ‘Savannah walking tours’ can bring up 50 pages of content, and the quality of the tour offerings are all over the place. Tour Pass eliminates that mental math by only including the top experiences. That way, no matter what you pick, you’re going to have a good time!”
So how does it work?
Tour Pass is a way to save up to 40% (and sometimes more!) when you bundle experiences. The pass itself can be for 1, 2, or 3 days and includes all your tickets, keeps track of where you are and how to get to your next stop with interactive maps and requires only a smartphone. “Everyone has a phone now, and we expect to have instant access to all the information we need. Still, there’s a lot to think about when you’re getting ready to travel. When people are in an unfamiliar city, they waste so much time trying to figure out where they are and where they’re going. And unless you’re retired, vacation time is usually limited, so why not maximize your experience with the amount of time you’ve got?”
I ask how the business, which is coming up on five years old, is going. “Great!” says Keith. “We cover Savannah, Charleston and St. Augustine, and people are really happy with the value we provide. Tour Pass pays for itself when you visit just two of the more than 30 featured attractions per day!”
Always working to improve, Tour Pass is launching a new app soon.
They keep a close eye on which experiences are getting the most buzz and the best reviews. Speaking of, Tour Pass itself has 589 5-star verified reviews on Judge.me, with customers expressing enthusiasm about the time, energy and money they saved.
Though he’s a native of nearby Charleston, Keith has glowing praise for Savannah. “The riverfront is one of my favorite parts of the city,” he says. “There’s so much to do, the food is so good and it’s such a walkable town. The trolleys and riverboats make you feel like you’re in a different time.” If you’re looking into any of Savannah’s keystone experiences, don’t miss the opportunity to tour smarter and save with a Tour Pass!
