On a recent short trip to Savannah, my friends and I bought the full day trolley ticket, plus the Ghosts and Graveyards trolley tour (which was nearly same price for an hour as the full day trolley tour - I think $27?). The Ghost and Graveyard tour advertises that it takes you to three locations: Graveyard, a house where triple murder took place, and a Chandlery(sp?) (in pirate times I guess it was sort of a five and dime mini mart supply store kind of thing).
Definitely not worth the money:
**Graveyard visit was basically driving past it on way to first stop, with information from day tour repeated about the graveyard (not much).
**House where triple murder occurred - guess what? NOT A HOUSE, rather a warehouse owned by the Trolley Company that happens to stand on the same block where a house used to be where a triple murder occurred 80 years ago. The warehouse is completely dark and empty except one corner where dim spotlights light up foam board posters showing the newspaper headlines from when the murder occurred. A brief recounting of the story, and a guarantee that the trolley company has documented NUMEROUS supernatural occurrences in the warehouse, is followed by trolley guests being invited to wander around the warehouse and take pictures (to pick up spirit activity) and use EMF meters supplied by trolley company).
**Finally the chandlery - a building which trolley company appears to also own, filled with lots of stuff to make it look like a thrift/supply sort of store, escorted into a room where you sit down and spend most of the tour time in the dark with an old scrappy pirate looking guy telling stories (about what I'm not certain as I couldn't understand most of what he said).
On the bright side:
**It was nice seeing Savannah in the dark (houses and buildings lit up)
**The narrator/guide was totally hilarious and an awesome story teller - she did narrate the whole drive and told various Savannah ghost stories along the way
**We heard a few different things about city/places we passed on the drive that we had not heard during day trolley tour
On the down side:
**It was basically same price as full day trolley (and ghost tour round trip lasted about one hour and 10 minutes).
**Even though I didn't expect a full on paranormal experience, I did expect more than a trip to Old Trown Trolley's warehouse for the price.
I definitely wish I had spent my money on something else! Day trolley was great though (that's in another review!)
