Savannah History & Haunts Candlelit Walking Ghost Tour

723 reviews
Though charmingly romantic by day, Savannah becomes altogether spookier after sundown. Discover the city’s macabre side when you embark on a nighttime, ghostly walking tour, illuminated by candlelight. Meet your costumed guide in central Savannah after dark, and discover its historical squares, cobblestone streets, moss-draped trees, and even its cemeteries. As you go, learn about the city’s scariest ghost stories, unexplained happenings, and chilling characters.

This was my first trip to Savannah and so I watched the movie “midnight in the garden of good and evil” the week before traveling there. It was good but not the “great” I had heard about so I got the book and binge read over several days. The book is Awesome! Then I couldn’t WAIT to tour the house! It is an absolutely beautiful house and grounds. I wish we could see more than just the first floor and gardens but understand the extra liability with people going up and down staircases, etc. the guide was very informative and always ready for questions from the group.

We have not read “the book”or seen the movie before the tour. 2 days ago we toured a few of the Savannah mansions. We are accustom to paying the fees to visit the beautiful homes. I mean- have you checked the crazy High property tax rates these owners have to pay?? Maintenance of these type of historical home is crazy. We enjoyed the toured. We walked back to a place for dinner and chatted about how this home had stood up in the 100 plus years. Then tonight, I watched the movie on my iPad. How intriguing.... I am glad we toured. I am glad I watched the movie. I pray that peace has been given to all involved in the real life story.

WOW is how I will start this review. Having been to Savannah before I was not all into each square as much as individual houses and events. One such thing being the Mercer-Williams house. I read the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil following my last trip and before this trip. That book really brought me into a deeper love for the city, historic district and specifically the Mercer house. The history here is amazing. The house itself has seen much change but still keeps its charm and appeal. The tour is very informing and allows you to see the 1st floor. The place is packed with Mr. Williams antiques and purchases through the years and are an awesome sight to see. This is a lived in house so the 2nd floor is off limits, but one can get the true real deal feel from the tour. The guide I had was a bald man who was amazing. Very knowledgable and willing to talk and answer questions. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. The current owner has my upmost gratitude and thanks for allowing me to tour the house! I do suggest reading the book before a visit to get a real-deal back story before visiting but it is not a requirement. Do yourself a favor and visit the Mercer-Williams house.
