Savannah's guides can make or break the tours, and Joby was no exception. His knowledge and enthusiasm made for a memorable tour that was both creepy and historically informative. We took the 10 p.m. tour and enjoyed it so much that we considered going back...More

Great creepy tour of house and walking tour. Loved the stories and all the evidence to back the proof of hauntings. The history was also very interesting. It left me wanting to come back for more!

Very informative and knowledgeable tour through this amazing home. The second owner was a single lady who managed to purchase it for a small amount of money and then left it to the city of Savannah for prosperity. Definitely worth a visit!

I've toured this beautiful Savannah home during the day and at night on a ghost tour. The home itself is beautiful and the history is fascinating. Our group had a very interesting experience at night. Not to be missed.
