Great tour - My favorite part not goes related where the headphones… I absolutely loved being able to hear every word the guide was saying without having to stand right next to him. The discussion about Colonial Park Cemetery. It was very interesting because there are so few headstones and we found out there are thousands more buried there than it appears

Loved this experience! - We researched a lot of ghost tours before choosing this one, and we are so glad we went with Genteel and Bards. Julianna was our guide and she was fantastic. We also loved that they had headphones and receivers for us so that we could hear everything she said. Perfect! Walking through Savannah historic district at night hearing ghost stories with a guide who clearly loves what she does was a really cool experience.
