“We even caught a ghost on film...”
Reviewed May 31, 2010

My husband and I took several tours on our recent trip to Savannah and this one was our favorite. Our tour guide, Mike was very enthusiastic about about the history of the city and I did not feel like he was reciting a script. He stopped at several points, got out of the car and pointed out exactly what he wanted us to see. It was so much more than just a narrated drive!
The cost was very reasonable and even cheaper than the walking tour we took.
The coolest thing though, is that while we were stopped at the monument to Oglethorpe from the Jewish community, we took a picture of the monument that upon closer inspection revealed a man in Colonial clothing. No one was anywhere near the monument when we took the picture and certainly no one in Colonial clothing.
We would recommend this tour to anyone taking a trip to Savannah.

“History with a side of Chilly Bumps”
Reviewed May 30, 2010

We took the last tour at 10:45pm and were picked up by a converted hearse (open air) that holds about eight passengers. We climbed up into the back of the hearse and sat on these swivelly seats. Probably the only time we'll travel in a hearse sitting up. Our tour guide Brett told us ghostly history while traveling through the historic district. He also peppered in his own personal experiences through the tour. Late night gave us the bonus of drunk patrons from the river walk bars feeling the need to interact. They waved, shouted errie warnings and scarry noises at us. Best was peeking in the windows of the Pirate's House restaurant while Brett told us about the different ghostly encounters the staff and patrons have had. Also circling the dimly lit square where a woman was hung. She was hung at night so as not to disturb the public's sensibilities(!?!).
Reasonably priced tour. Brett was a great tour guide. Picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Encouraged to bring our own libation (legal in Savannah). Not your straight-laced tour.

“Hearse Ghost Tours”
Reviewed May 23, 2010

My friends and I just visited Savannah GA to celebrate a 50th birthday. Savannah is awesome in itsself, however, the highlight of our trip was a ride in the hearse from Hearse Ghost Tours. Laura, our guide was so much fun and informative. We will definitely do this again and can highly recommend this activity. It was not so scary that you lose sleep, but just enough that made you think twice about walking down that alley after dinner. Love ya Laura! Porter - Party of Three - Birthday Celebration!!

“Ride of your life”
Reviewed May 19, 2010

Wes was the driver or our hearse. He was funny, educated, as well as very nice. The tour is exciting with so much history, many stories about old Savannah and the Ghost that are still lingering there. I would go again any day. It is a MUST for anyone that loves a little excitement.

“Spooky Fun!!!”
Reviewed May 10, 2010

While searching for something to do in Savannah, I came across the Hearse Tours. It was just a trip for my daughter and I. Being that my daughter is in funeral directing, we HAD to try this. Our tour guide, Louis, is amazing! He actually lept onto AND over the hearse!!! There were many different ghost stories and we enjoyed it thoroughly. In fact, we loved it so much, we are going again with more family! We are driving from Eastern NC to do ONLY this! You should definitely call the Hearse Tour and go on a spooky tour of the city. Also, be sure to ask for Louis. Jackie, the lady that does the reservations, is very helpful and offers other interesting sites around town. Highly recommend this, definitely worth it!!!
