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.

A must-do experience
Jeremy_V, Jun 2023
This tour is a must! Our tour guide was one of the most dynamic storytellers I’ve ever seen. He seamlessly mixed historical fact, first hand accounts, and urban myth to paint a wonderfully creepy picture of Savannah. His historical garb and lantern light were the icing on the cake to create the perfect spooky ambience.
