Savannah History & Haunts Candlelit Walking Ghost Tour

727 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.

The Harper-Fowlkes House has the most imposing exterior facade of any of the historic Savannah houses that are open to the public, but it has the most expensive and least interesting tour of those that I visited. The house serves as the regional headquarters of the Order of Cincinnatus, and the upstairs bedrooms have been converted into reception and meeting areas, meaning the historic tour is really only limited to four rooms on the first floor. And even these rooms have been significantly modified over the years. What's left is a short tour (about 30 minutes) that is devoted half to the woman who built the house and the Order headquartered here, and a few minutes on the historic features of the house that remain.

We were needing to kill some time and saw that they were doing tours every hour on the hour that day. Paid our $12 and it was about a 30 min tour. Maybe 40 min at a stretch. Interesting facts we learned about the property and it's owners. Mostly female owners who kept this property from ruin. Probably the best thing was learning about the Society of the Cincinnati's who now manage the historical trust of the property. Something new I never knew.

The house is amazing and very interesting. It is very well preserved for the particular period the previous owner left it in. The tour guide, I do not remember her name, was very informative and answered a lot of our questions. I would recommend this house for anyone who is interested in interior design in the early 1900s.

Hi there! We're pleased as punch you had such a good time during your visit with us! We hope to be able to add alternate tours in the future, perhaps about the architecture and the preservation movement of which Alida Harper Fowlkes was a part. So please consider a return visit in the future!
