This was the highlight of our trip!! Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and was very knowledgeable on what he was speaking on. This was our first ghost tour in Savannah and we are very glad we chose the walking tour instead of a trolley tour. It’s cool to be walking/standing

This was our second ghost tour while visiting Savannah and the best of the best! Our host, Jovy, was intriguing and kept us completely captivated with the stories of the city and mingled history with paranormal in a curious way. We definitely recommend this tour and can't wait

Bradford was a true Southern gentleman! His story telling was spectacular but not cheesy. He remembered each guest by name and was very interactive throughout the whole tour. It was the perfect way to learn about Savannah's history!

Bradford was amazing! The history! The story-telling! The kind, southern charm! What a fantastic experience! My whole family was riveted the entire two hours and hated that it was over. We’ve done other tours but none have compared to this one!! Highly recommend—total class act.
