Our family of 6 did this tour in August of 2019. Our tour guide was very nice but the first 30 minutes of our tour was spent listening about his own personal stories and our 4 kids quickly lost interest. There were some ghost stories shared but it really was more history based. It was also confusing on where to meet for the tour and when we needed to be there. We would not do it again for sure as we didn’t feel like we got what we signed up for.
Overbooked. Couldn’t hear the guide. Sold as a ghost tour but he immediately told us it would be a history tour. Didn’t check for tickets so I can’t even believe I paid for it. He seemed knowledgeable but standing in a bank parking lot hearing him claim some historical event happened there wasn’t working for my group...that purchased tickets to a ghost tour.
This ghost tour was so much fun! Our guide was full of lots of interesting information and history, and welcomed any and all questions we may have had. We got to learn lots of interesting tidbits of Savannah history, from the creepy to the macabre. We learned that spirits generally show themselves in three ways: orbs, mist, and apparitions, and while I wasn't lucky enough to capture an apparition, I did get an amazing picture of a ghostly mist. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to do a ghost tour.
Michelle was an excellent tour guide. She was very knowledgeable of the history and made it enjoyable. Her stories were great and the pictures she shared were intriguing. Would definitely take another tour with her when visiting again.
Where to begin? So the tour guide was low key rude. No one was allowed to talk (which to an extent was fine, but we had a 3 month old with us that chose not to go to bed on time!) we basically paid $20/each to hear corny jokes. Oh! And the best part?! No one checked that we had tickets. And at the end of an hour we stopped at a random square and our guide said “ok so tips are accepted”. Like excuse me? All of us were basically verbally abused for an hour and now you want a tip?! My husband fact checked him and everything he told us was true (yay!) but overall I would not recommend this tour. The price nor the guide was worth any of it.
