Fantastic tour! We had Ashley and she was super knowledgeable. A mixture of Savannah history, local lore, previous guest stories, and great jokes made 2 hours fly by. The headphones make this tour easy to hear no matter the background noise, and we were given the option to sit at almost every place we stopped. This tour company is owned by Savannah locals, so if you want to support a local business then pick this tour!

FANTASTIC!! I have to agree with all the other 5-star reviews - make time for a Genteel & Bard tour while you’re in Savannah. We went on a 7:30 pm ghost tour when it was about 20 degrees out. Our guide, Jovi, was so fun and riveting that no one left the two-hour tour despite the frigid weather.

Jovi seemed to know everything about Savannah whether or not it was paranormal. In the 5 minutes we spent outside the Sorrell-Weed House, he told us more interesting stories than we learned on a 90-minute tour of the house the following day.

I’ve been on at least 15 ghost tours in the US and Europe, and this was one of the best.

Haunted walking tour, was excellent, and the tour guide was very personable. The tour guide Jovi was friendly, answered any questions, and knowledgeable about the area and history. I would absolutely and have recommended the tour to other friends already and I only went on the tour 2 days ago. I have a Great Pyranese, she is good with crowds and they welcome dogs on the walking tour, which is outstanding.

Loved walking around Savannah at night and learning haunted history. Guide shared what paranormal experiences previous customers had felt in one area and hard to imagine when we were standing in an alleyway. Maybe It was me. Using earbuds to listen to guide was a big plus. Liked the tour better than a trolley tour though.

We wanted to do a ghost tour in Savannah and I chose this company as it looked much better (and dare I say classier?!) than the others out there - I am SO glad I did! Our guide Bradford (?) was brilliant. He remembered every single persons name on the tour (which we were really impressed by) and he was very enthusiastic, entertaining, informative and just incredibly lovely. The tour is a lot of fun, we learnt a lot and really enjoyed the history and ghost stories. You also get headphones so even though our group was quite big, we could hear everything without having to squash up (or our guide having to yell). My friend and I really enjoyed ourselves - I booked it as a surprise for her and she loved it. This is a fantastic tour that I cannot recommend enough! Thank you!!

Meh. Maybe a ghost tour just isn’t my thing. It was pretty cheesy. The tour guide was a nice guy and I did learn some interesting things about the city but the whole haunted thing seemed really overplayed.

What made this ghost tour exceptional was the guide, Jovy. He was EXTREMELY enthusiastic about sharing his ghost stories and knowledge. He was very well spoken, knowledgeable, pleasant, and funny. He made the night interesting and a lot of fun. I would recommend this tour and specifically request him as your tour guide.
