I had the pleasure of joining on a ghost tour led by Tyler. He was very animated in his storytelling and kept the attention of this fully booked tour group. It was nice to stroll around after dark and the walking distance was not bad at all.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I had never been to Savannah before, but had been on a few history and ghost tours in other cities, and this by far was one of my favorites. I highly recommend not only this company, but our guide Tyler did such a fantastic job mixing Savannah’s history and supernatural with a fantastic air of creative story telling. You can tell he enjoys not only his job, but this city and the immense history it has to offer. His passion and story telling ability is top notch, and he’s a super genuine and good natured guy all around. I love that he kept things very historic, and told us some of the most prevalent ghost and haunting stories of Savannah without taking away from the history and beauty of this city. He kept us enthralled and throughly enjoying every minute of this tour. We highly recommend Savannah History and Haunts Candlelit Walking Ghost Tour and Tyler is impeccable!

It takes a lot of energy (and passion) to guide tours and our guide, Tyler, displayed both. My friend and I were reluctant to take a 90 minute walking tour as there are so many types of ghost tours. As soon as we arrived at the meeting location though, we immediately saw that Tyler was very animated and knowledgeable. This was a tour worth the time as well as money.
The only con is the meeting location as it was a bit confusing for us. It would be easier to just meet in the square.

My wife and I registered for Ghost Tour based on overwhelmingly positive reviews, but I would not recommend this tour to friends. First of all, the tour group had 29 people which is great money for the company, but limited locations we could go, made questions impractical, and ensured the tour was impersonal. The guide walked us to about 8 locations and told scripted stories that were not creepy and were only mildly interested. And many seemed simply fabricated for the tour. We didn't enter any buildings which could've added a lot to the tour.

I don't think our view of the tour was unique as the rest of our tour group appeared to be as underwhelmed as we were.

We loved the tour! Allie was our guide and she absolutely nailed it. She's funny and has great stories to tell while also providing the necessary spooks; she's done her research. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you don't have a lot of time for the 3-4 hour tours. Carry your drinks with you!

My group of 4 had a wonderful time on our tour! All together our tour had roughly 15 people but our guide made it feel very intimate. I unfortunately did not catch our guides name but he was very knowledgeable about the factual history AND the folklore of Savannah. Nothing but good things to say here!

This is a must do for to fully appreciate the rich history of Savannah. Dan's knowledge of the city, historical facts, and crowd engagenent really brought the experience to life. My family simply raved about how much they enjoyed the detail. Dan is truly passionate about his craft. This was a most wonderful experience for our family. We highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Savannah!

Very enjoyable tour of Savannah led by the spooky Tyler. Learned a lot about the local lore and the urban legends that haunts Savannah. Would def recommend on the first night of your stay in order to understand the lay out and the history of the city (and to be freaked out by any noise you hear in your hotel room the rest of your stay).

Dave, our tour guide, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and did a phenomenal job of weaving the legends and stories with historical facts. I loved that he wasn't just going for a cheap thrill but was still able to create an atmosphere of spookiness through his storytelling. The only issue we had was at the time of booking, we were under the impression we would only have a group of about a dozen (due to Covid); we were surprised to see a much larger group of 25 or so. Since the tour was completely outdoors and Dave did advise that we all wear our masks, we felt comfortable to continue. Since we tried to spread out, it was difficult to hear Dave sometimes, but it didn't take away from the entire experience.

Enjoyed the experience. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. Not scary at all but a great overview of the early history of Savannah. Guide had a very strong voice that enabled you to hear him in our large group. It also kept you riveted on what he was saying. Strongly recommend this tour.
