We booked an evening ghost tour with Southern Strolls on the advice of another tour guide and we really enjoyed it. There are a ton of ghost tour vendors in Savannah and we wanted one that wouldn't have the cheesy costumes and gimmicks so this one was perfect. We learned more about Savannah's history while hearing some of its more infamous ghost stories. It was just us and another family with small children so it was very family friendly and a nice small group. Of course, our son wouldn't sleep alone that night but I won't hold that against them :) Overall it was a great tour and I would highly recommend this touring company.

Scott was awesome! The tour was very informative and engaging for our whole family. All five of our kids (ages 8-13) had a great time. The tour was just the right mix of historical info, humor and spookiness.

The walking ghost and history tour was excellent. It was easy to book the tour and we had no problem finding the group. Scott was very friendly and easy going. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Savannah.

Our guide was friendly and always engaged the members of our party. He even made the kids feel welcome and excited when they were nervous about "ghosts". I highly recommend.

We booked the tour easily through the Southern Strolls website after hearing rave reviews from one of Savannah's' top tour providers. The communications leading up to the tour were clear and we had no problem finding the group. The night we went there was a good size group, but the guide, Scott, made sure to include everyone in the tour.

Scott was friendly and easy going and clearly had a grasp on the haunted events he was sharing with the us. We felt he was very honest and while the events he shared we not of shock and awe variety, they were well delivered and believable. He also has a great comedic sense. Scotts knowledge of the history of Savannah was vast and his ability to answer questions was faultless. While on the tour, he recommended a tour of the Owens Thomas House which we did the next day and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Savannah.

As an aside, Scott also recommended several great restaurants for us to try and they were all fantastic.

Overall, a great value and a memorable tour! Would recommend for anyone looking for a fun walking ghost tour!

Will definitely take another tour with Scott if we visit Savannah again.
