My girlfriend and I took a ghost tour in January and were lucky to have Paul as our guide. My girlfriend had already done a couple of different ghost tours in Savannah and this one beat them all for her. Paul is an incredible tour...More

We paid our $10 each for a tour of the property. The guide was somewhat knowledgeable of the homes history, and the property is quite empty. They call it a baby museum. True. I would have been willing to pay more for a better education...More

Paul our tour guide was very enthusiastic. He didn't care about the clock. His presentation was his own and not spewed from a preplanned speech. He mixed his experience plus photos and videos from guests. Great!
