As a local resident in Savannah, I've been on numerous walking Ghost Tours. This has by far been the best tour I've taken. TC is excellent at what he does, the stories and facts are on target. I love how he incorporates his personal experiences with the stories in his tour. Living in Savannah, it's not unusual to have ghosts in your house. Yes the stories and experiences are true.
The use of the radio headsets makes a huge difference! You are able to truly enjoy the tour and take plenty of pictures, while still being able to hear what is being said, without having to be within 6 feet of the tour guide.
I highly recommend taking this tour and will do it again.

You are beyond kind Rose!

I'm so thankful for your kind words, especially knowing your experiences with Savannah's paranormal. The photos you have are incredible evidence, which are far more than orbs or shadow figures. You have actual apparitions! Also, I loved hearing the stories from y'alls home, which proves that Savannah's haunted side goes beyond the Historic District.

I sincerely thank you for taking the time to write this review.

From my family to yours, have a very Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas.

This was a really great tour!! History mixed with ghosts! We enjoyed walking around the historic district and seeing the beauty of Savannah. Our tour guide was absolutely amazing and kept my 8 yr old and 11 year old niece and nephew engaged and excited the whole time!! We stopped in Savannah on our way to Disney and both my niece and nephew had more fun on this tour and in Savannah than at Disney! I think that says something, lol!!

Hey!

I had a blast hosting y'all and so happy everyone had a great time. To say that your niece and nephew had more fun on our Ghost Encounter Tour and in Savannah than Disney is an incredible compliment and I'm grateful for your words. All four of you made the night a memorable one for me, and I love the photos that we captured, especially outside of the Mercer Williams House. You got a really good one.

From my family to yours, have a very Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas!

Truly the best! TC's knowledge, storytelling, interacting and engagement created a perfect tour of Savanah. My husband and I have taken tours in many cities and I do not believe anyone has come close to TC. He carried an iPad with audio clips, historical photos and at the appropriate location, peppered them into his presentation. It was a well thought out balance of history, architecture, and current cultural happenings! You will enjoy and be satisfied with this tour. We were 100%!

Mariann!

I had so much fun with y'all yesterday on our day tour. I enjoyed our conversations, getting to know each other, and exploring Savannah. The both of you are truly a delight, and I'm so thankful for your kind words. Hope nothing haunting happened to y'all in your hotel. Haha. If something did happen, even more great memories of your visit.

From my family to yours, may y'all have a very happy Holiday Season,
