Savannah History & Haunts Candlelit Walking Ghost Tour

690 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.

We were dragged here by an O'Connor fan, and it was somewhat interesting. Nice to know there are people who care enough about a long gone author to keep their childhood home an attraction for her aging fans!

Can't wait till this place reopens - Flannery O'Connor is arguably one of our greatest American writers - a very complex woman but to anyone who appreciates fine writing this place is Mecca...she was a complete original - her work still packs a punch that can take the wind out of you...

What an awesome experience visiting this house! Our tour guide was not only very knowledgeable about Flannery’s life, but she was visibly enthusiastic about the tour which it all the more better. The house displays objects used by Flannery throughout her life along with letters she wrote, which are quite funny. The staff was also very accommodating when I informed them that we would be running late. Would highly recommend!

If you're a literary tourist, this is a stop you don't want to miss! This is a unique opportunity to see an immaculately restored middle class home from the Depression era. The guides are well versed in the history of the home, its restoration, and the life and career of its most famous resident. We had a great time and were glad we made this stop!

The childhood home of Author Mary Flannery O'connor, interesting to see the home and the upper class way of life back in the early 1900's. The grounds and surrounding square, park were so nice.
