Great tour - Our family of five (kids 7, 10, 13) enjoyed the tour. I would highly recommend it for families. Our tour guide was “in character” the entire time and did a great job.

Very entertaining and educational tour! - How do you kick off a week in Savannah? Two great meals, a trolley tour, and end your first day with a Walking Ghost Tour by Savannah History & Haunts! I booked my tour through Viator. The process was easy and meeting instructions were on point. Our guide, Dan, checked us in and was an amazing guide, providing us with stories that combined historical facts and ghost stories that may or may not have been factual, but were well told and fun to hear nonetheless! He was really great at changing his pace and voice tone to help emphasize key poins in his stories, as well as leading is to famous houses and Colonial Park Cemetery along the way. I tool the 9:30PM tour so it was properly dark out, and I could not be happier with my decision to book this tour and have Dan as the guide! Highly recommend!

AMAZING 🤩 - This tour is perfect!! We took the 9:30pm tour which we recommend as the stories are more fun in the dark. It was the perfect amount of time. Our guide was amazing spoke clearly, gave lots of facts and told fun spooky stories.

Dan in the man! - The tour guide, Dan, was phenomenal!! Great personality and even better knowledge of Savannah’s history. Great orator!! The walking tour was paced well. The legends and stories were incredible! I love how Dan encouraged us to do our research and not just take his word for it! 10 out of 10!! Don’t hesitate!!

Great storytelling & history! - We came to Savannah for our anniversary & something we do every trip is a local ghost tour. After reviewing all the different options, we saw that this specific ghost tour is well sought after & tends to sell out & we decided to go with the candlelit tour. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable & could really tell a great story while keeping everyone interested & engaged. It’s a walking tour so I suggest to dress accordingly :) it’s an old city so there is uneven pavement etc. also bring cash to tip your guide if you enjoyed your time! We highly suggest to take this walking tour.

Tyler was awesome! - My friends and I did our tour with Tyler not expecting much but had a great time! Tyler was knowledgeable, friendly, and the perfect amount of spooky. The information was fascinating and engaging. We booked our tour for 9:30 PM and we highly recommend the tour after dark to really get the full effect of the scary stories!
