Traveler Tips

His name began with a J but I can’t exatly remember it (sorry) definitely worth the money
We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a genuine, cerebral, and spine-chilling ghostly adventure.
There were a couple of kids on the tour that seemed a little young, but I suppose that's up to the parents, not the tour company.

Robert's Savannah education!
Phyllis_N, Jun 2023
Robert made our tour enjoyable and educational. We viewed these areas in a new light the following day making our trip to Savannah that much more fun.
Great experience
Chris_F, May 2023
Ashley was very knowledgeable, she knew the history, but also kept it light and funny! I would highly recommend her tour too anyone, history buff or paranormal inthusiast or a combination like we are! 👍👍
Informative and Engaging!
Callista_A, May 2023
Bradford was super knowledgable and very engaging throughout the entire tour, especially with the weather being less than ideal! Bradford took the time to learn about each guest and incorporate them into the tour as well, which made it feel very personable. Very-well organized and thought out walking tour. We felt we got a great historical as well as spooky tour and were able to cross out many sites we had on our "must-see" Savannah list. Would absolutely recommend to a friend.
Entertaining and informative
Geri_R, May 2023
Loved the historical insights behind the haunting. Bradford made you feel like you were experiencing the events as they happened.
Fun Time
Barbara_T, May 2023
TC is a great energetic story teller! Enjoyed our Tour. Would have like more stories about haunting and why some buildings are haunted
Amazing guide, fun ghost stories
Eleanor_C, May 2023
Our guide, TC, was the best part. He is very entertaining to listen to, and knows the city and it’s people so personally. You can tell how much he cares about its history! I would definitely recommend this over a ghost bus tour.
This was a great overview...

This was a great overview of the city of Savannah and it’s history. The guide was very informative and friendly. He also gave us a bonus talk about freemasonry.
It was great!!
Daphnee_J, May 2023
Ashley was fantastic!! She was very informative and had some jokes that had us all laughing. It was nice that she offered a bathroom break throughout.
10/10 Would Recommend
Kate_S, May 2023
TC did a fantastic job with this tour! I definitely recommend this tour to anyone who’s looking for a history lesson but also some entertainment. It had just the right amount of spook, even for the biggest skeptic!
Beautiful scary night
Jeff_S, May 2023
We enjoyed all the scary history of Savannah and the beautiful, dark cool evening. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
highly recommend and would encourage anyone visiting Savannah to Genteel and Bard
Deb_H, May 2023
Our guide was Ashley. She was FABULOUS! Loved her description, energy, and overall tour! Loved it all!
Loved the experience
Valarie_M, May 2023
Had a great ghost walking tour with Bradford on May 12. After one introduction of names and where we were from, he addressed us by name or called out things from “Ohio” throughout the tour - really felt like valued guests. Bradford was a MOST excellent tour guide - amazing storyteller with lots of animation, thoughtful to all the guest needs (someone was in a wheelchair so he made sure there was a place for them when there were curbs etc), and a true historian on all things Savannah. I will also add that Bradford was also very mindful of people’s time and money, making sure we started the tour on time - even calling those who didn’t show up at the 10-15 minutes early requested by the tour company. The tour itself was great, lots of strange and macabre stories, probably best for those over 13. The tour was great but the experience was so much better thanks to Bradford. Honestly wished we could have had another opportunity to tour with him - he was just that great.
A Great way to spend an evening!
Susan_A, May 2023
This was a great tour and our guide, Brad was amazing! He really threw himself into the stories and bought them all to life (?!) You need to be willing to take the stories with a pinch of salt but we found it all to be thoroughly enjoyable. (Be aware that this is a two hour walk.)
Best Ghost Tour Ever
Rose_L, May 2023

Very entertaining walk
Michael_J, May 2023
Our guide Bradford was very engaging and animated and it was an entertaining walk. We have been on the haunted tour walks before in Savannah but Bradford put an entertaining twist on all the stories and engaged all the participants.

Jesama_R, May 2023
Getting to know the history of those areas in Savannah. Interesting to hear the theory about why the moss doesn't grow in square on specific trees.
Good time
Don_F, May 2023
We did the hop on hop off trolley tour and your ghost tour finished a nice day. It really gave us a more personal experience.

Bradley's storytelling. He has a way of weaving a story of history. Very entertaining, his ability to remember names was impressive
Spooky fun
Tour guide,Robert was excellent. The tour was at night and that added a great deal of spookiness to it. Fun and informative.
Interesting tour
Janice_L, May 2023
Interesting to hear the history of Savannah & learning about the early settlers; walking the city at night is really cool; beautiful architecture
A big disappointment.
Jacqueline_T, Apr 2023
My friend and I were expecting more. Very disappointed. Just a bunch of silly stories that I guess children or teenagers might find interesting. The tour guide kept making references to movies that my friend and I had never seen. I also didn’t like that he compared a musket to an AK 47. In this day and age that is unnecessary and irresponsible. We left half way through the tour and were disappointed that we had spent 143.00. Save your money and do another tour.
Excellent storyteller!
Scott_M, Apr 2023
Bradford was an excellent storyteller complete with a theatrical flair. Great history of Savannah on a beautiful evening. The technology was very helpful!
Great Haunted Walking tour!

Guide was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to when asking questions. We liked how in depth he spoke about local history.
Fantastic ghost tour
Melanie_K, Apr 2023
Robert was a fantastic ghost guide! His knowledge of Savannah’s most haunted places kept us interested the entire tour. It was an extra bonus to have head sets. We never felt like we were missing out on hearing anything. We had multiple spots we wanted to return to the next day knowing more of the history behind them. Definitely worth the money!
