Traveler Tips

There is a bit of walking involved and the paths can be bumpy.
I wish that there was an age limit for participants, or an option for an adults-only tour.
The stories were too long and the tour started too early it wasn't nightime yet.

One of the best tours I've been on! I had so much fun learning about the history of Savannah in a "spooky" sort of way. Tyler was by far the best tour guide! Very personable, knowledgeable, and friendly. He made everyone feel welcome and made sure we all had a great time. If this is the type of tour you're looking for, I highly recommend this one! And hopefully, you'll get Tyler!!
Family friendly history haunts!

The tour was amazing and our whole group had fun/ age 10 to 50. Our guide Tyler did a great job. We learned so much about Savannah and places we walked by and never suspected the secrets they carry.
This tour is an absolute must for your first time in Savannah!

History with a twist
Leeda_F, Mar 2023
This tour was one of the best things we did in Savannah. For me, it wasn’t very scary, but it also wasn’t cheesy. Our guide was very knowledgeable of history and that’s what made it so interesting. He pointed out things we had walking past the day before without any thought or knowledge of but hearing the stories of certain buildings and burial grounds (most of which are not marked cemeteries but parks/roads/buildings was fascinating.
Great fun!
Brianna_P, Mar 2023
Taylor was an awesome host - completely welcoming and engaging and made it great fun. I would recommend a ghost tour with him!
Great atmosphere,...

Fun And Spooky
Jessica_M, Mar 2023
Fun experience w great tour guide who told genuinely spooky stories. The places visited were loaded with history. Wish we could have gone into a graveyard like you do with one of the tours in Charleston but was still great.

Our tour guide was great. This was one of the best tours we have been on by far! Seriously a great tour guide.
Captivating and fun with a twist of haunts.
Azure_B, Mar 2023
The whole experience was fabulous. Dan put history and haunts together well. He knows the history of Savannah, revolutionary war, civil war, and the mysteries deaths that took place within the houses around the squares. I’m a history major and Dan captivated me with knowledge. He put the haunts well within his stories. He left you wondering what you may see or hear around the historic district. What will you see?
Wonderful ghost tour experience!
Cheryl_P, Mar 2023
