My wife and I recently visited Savannah for the first time, and a ghost tour was at the top of our list! While planning our visit, it was tough to choose between the numerous operators since there is so much competition for these types of tours. I was delighted that I chose 'The Best Savannah Tour', based on the many favorable reviews on TA. We have taken many ghost tours throughout the USA and Europe, including tours in Key West, New Orleans, York (England) and Prague. This tour was by far my personal favorite, thanks to the tour guide T.C. and his excellent presentation of the tour. As previously noted in other reviews, he provides ear buds for the tour which is a MAJOR bonus over the other tours. While on ghost tours (or any other group tours for that matter) in the past, it is often difficult to hear the guide due to city noise, other chatty guests, etc. However, with this tour, you can easily follow along with the guide at all times. T.C. has also adapted technology into his tour in other ways, by showing video clips, playing creepy music as you walk along and listen to his stories, etc. Even if you take the technology out of the tour, T.C. is clearly a naturally gifted tour guide with the perfect personality for leading a group tour. He is full of great information, humorous and you can tell that he loves what he does. I just wish we had been in town longer to take his daytime tour. Honestly, he should be the #1 spot on TA and I feel he will get there once others find out about his tours.

We couldn't be more thrilled that the two of you had such a great time on our tour. When we started The Best Savannah Tour, it was with the goal in mind to provide the very best tour experience possible to our guests - to welcome them to our city with the same enthusiasm that we would our own families. We don't see our guests as "tickets sold". We see our guests as new friends looking for a one-of-a-kind Savannah experience. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. It was a pleasure hosting you, and we're so glad you had fun with us. Best wishes for a happy new year.

TCM provided a really great tour of Savannah with interesting stories about the city, its characters and spirits. The headphones were a big plus. He even played snippets of speeches such as a Christmas greeting between Sherman and Lincoln. Top notch!

Michael!

It was a lot of fun hosting y'all and very happy you enjoyed the tour. No doubt Savannah is packed with history and stories. Sherman and Lincoln's accounts are incredibly interesting, and standing outside the home Sherman stayed in while listening to those accounts brings the history closer to us. I hope y'all enjoyed the rest of your stay in Savannah, and we greatly appreciate your review and kind words.

Had a really great time on the tour. Our guide TC was funny and very knowledgeable, had a lot of great stories about the city. The tour has headphones so everyone can hear over the crowds in Savannah. We took the daytime tour and plan to take the ghost tour before we leave!

We had a really good time, TC was very charismatic and informative. The headsets helped a lot, we didn't have to stay right next to him to hear which was nice with all the things going on around us!!
