Already booked a ghost tour? Then don’t read the rest of this page. It’ll break your heart. But if you’re still looking around, we offer the first premium, all-inclusive, adult-only tour in Savannah. It’s for those who settle for nothing less than the best. It’s both a ghost tour (without crying children) and a haunted pub crawl (without standing in lines). So you’ll experience both ghosts and drinking, the two hallmarks of Savannah. The alcohol is free, unlimited, and truly local, plus you’ll get a nice set of gifts. Book now. You’ll get 100% of your money back if you don’t enjoy it.
Meeting location is the “Cotton Exchange”. Don’t worry, we’ll email you all the details after you book.
Welcome to the South, Suga!
Finding things to do in Savannah isn’t easy — it’s a small city — but did you know we’re actually the most haunted city in America? Opium dens. Pirates. The slave trade. Rum Runners. Brothels galore. Bareknuckle boxing. Dueling. Yellow fever. Mass murder. Those are just some of the activities that occurred here, activities that lead people to believe our city is so horrifying.
That, and the regular paranormal activity taking place around the city.
If you go to Kansas City, you’d want to eat barbecue. If you go to Orlando, you’d want to visit Disney World. If you go to Rome, you’d want to visit the Coliseum (and gorge on Pizza!). Well, here in Savannah we got ghosts and drinking laws that’ll give your head the spins! We like to say that visiting Savannah without taking a ghost tour — walking the streets with a cocktail in hand (you can do that here!) — is like making it all the way to France without seeing the Eiffel tower.
However, not all ghost tours are created equal.
If you go on a regular ghost tour in Savannah, you’ll see guides dressed in childish outfits, telling memorized stories with fixed punch-lines they hope you’ll laugh at. And just wait till you hear their voice when they get to a scary part. You’ll spend many moments looking down at your feet during awkward silences, because the guides are too inexperienced to lead a group. We’re not exaggerating. Some of them really shouldn’t be guides at all, and you may end up standing at the back of the group because everything they say makes you CRINGE.
That’s not all.
Most tours cater to families with kids and are childish by design. Meaning, your tour has been dubbed down to PG, so kids aren’t scared and moms aren’t angry. This is ridiculous, because 80% of all people who go on ghost tours are adults. Some companies do offer 18 or 21+ tours, but it’s still the same guides, doing the same routes, telling the same stories the same way.
Meeting location is the “Cotton Exchange”. Don’t worry, we’ll email you all the details after you book.
But even with all the above, the biggest of all problems is still the DREADED BAR LINE. On an average pub crawl, the guide would take you to multiple bars. Guess what? You’re not the only ones being served. There are the people already there, plus you’re in a group of 30 individuals, and there are only one or two bartenders! Of your 2 hour tour, at least an hour (half the time!) will be wasted waiting in lines, paying one at a time. Multiply that by 3 to 4 bars!
Now that’s a true nightmare.
Can you afford to risk your limited vacation time with these kinds of tours? Most people are in Savannah for just a couple days. Imagine how frustrating it would be to waste an entire night, full of expectations, only to be let down by either a childish ghost tour or a time-wasting pub crawl.
This is why we created Savannah Ghost Tours, a true premium ghost tour for adults. No waiting for everyone else to pay. No children to interrupt the flow. Our goal is to show you what Savannah truly looks like. No bullshit, just plenty of ghost activity and alcohol, because these are the pillars of our culture. We engineered this experience from scratch to give you the most thrilling adventure.
You’re going to love every second. We’re the *only* ghost tour / pub crawl in Savannah that won’t keep you standing in line. This is huge, because you effectively get another hour of tour time (otherwise spent waiting). So come and join us. You’ll hear every story about the phantoms of our city. God, maybe you’ll even see one (Miley Cyrus and many others swear they did!). Above all, you’ll come back home full of stories to tell, and photos to show (or post on Instagram!).
Meeting location is the “Cotton Exchange”. Don’t worry, we’ll email you all the details after you book.
To keep in line with the spirit of our city (pun intended!), we’ll give you unlimited, free alcohol. Yep, Savannah’s famous Southern charm is injected right into the heart of the tour. People doubted we could make such an offer profitable, but we managed to pull it off.
So drink as much as you want! There’s no limit to what you can order. Our tour will give you all the liquid courage you need to face the city’s demons. The bars we partner with offer us a complete 100% open bar. Want another drink? Just ask. And here’s the beautiful thing about Savannah… you can walk with your drink from bar to bar! That’s what you call not wasting time.
There are lots of haunted pub crawls in Savannah, but none of them are all-inclusive. Being all-inclusive is not just about saving money. It also saves a tremendous amount of time:
SKIP THOSE LINES!
We have special agreements with the locations. We’ll speed through from one spot to the next, while the other groups stand in line waiting for what seems like forever to pay. All the while staring at you, their envious eyes popping out as you order freely without paying. Alas, they shouldn’t have settled for a cheap tour! When you see those good folks waiting, you’ll thank God you chose to go on our tour.
The idea is to keep you moving, to cover as much ground as possible.
Free local cocktails, beer and wine, in haunted bars and taverns, while walking the city to even more haunted locations, means we’re offering both a ghost tour and a pub crawl at the same time. We like to think of it as a ghost tour fused with a pub crawl, offering the best of both worlds, with none of the drawbacks. And it’s the only tour in all of Georgia that’s all-inclusive.
We should also mention that we take the safety of our customers very seriously. Assholes and bitchy couples who can’t hold their alcohol are not welcome. We will not tolerate any fighting or creepy behavior. If you’re concerned with how weird things might get, don’t be. Everything’s under control. Not that it happens often — the tour is expensive, so it attracts the more classy folk.
And it’s not just about alcohol.
It’s the most expensive tour in town, so you should be able to brag you were on it! Therefore, we’ll give you plenty of swag on the house! You’ll get souvenir koozies for your drinks, and plenty of Polaroid pictures of your group. All free, no added cost.
You’re now part of the Savannah Ghost Tour’s family. Head held high, you’ll soon be walking with a brand new koozie in one hand, and a Polaroid in the other, commanding attention from all directions. You took the premium Savannah tour most people assume they can’t afford (not factoring all the costs they’re actually saving!), and look at you now – all enchanted, happy, and tipsy.
This is what Southern Hospitality is all about. Life is good.
You won’t have to pay an extra dime for your alcohol, and you’ll be free to have as many drinks as you want. There’s beer from local breweries like Two Tides and Southbound. There’s house wine in many of the places we visit. And there are Southern cocktails like mint julep, chatham artillery punch, Irish mule, etc, all made with liquors made locally.
And here’s a cool thing many people don’t know:
Savannah is one of only four cities in America where you can walk around with alcohol freely. This makes our offer so much sweeter than it would be in any normal city. It means that you can drink as much as you want, 100% of the time without paying, AND take the drinks with you outside.
God, we love this place. Far more than just a city, Savannah is a symbol of what man can achieve when he lays down his weapons and turns his gaze to living the good life.
We love kids as much as anybody, but not while we’re walking around at night drinking 😉 This is an adult-only tour, so behave accordingly. By accordingly, we mean, be an adult!
There’ll be no little people or their mothers around to scold you for dropping an f-bomb. And we won’t send you to the principal’s office if you scream “I GATA PISS!”. People today are so sensitive. But you’re here to see the dark side of history. If you want selfies with Mickey Mouse, go to Orlando. You totally can, it’s just a four hour drive.
As you know, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. In tours where kids are allowed, it takes just one scared child to slow down the entire group. Well, not here. It’s an adult-only tour, and so, we’ll treat you like an adult. There’ll be no hand holding. And no coddling. But there’ll be frightening stories, and loads of booze.
Savannah is the best city in America for a ghost tour. It’s something you won’t get anywhere else in the world. And chances are you’ll never do anything similar ever again.
So, make sure you’re getting the best tour.
We already did the hard part so you can have a rare, once in a lifetime, first-person view from where all the darkness happened.
In fact, we’ve engineered our routes so that they cover all of Savannah’s Big 5:
* Ghosts and spirits.
* Drinking outside.
* Old architecture.
* Our famous squares.
* Our beautiful live oak trees.
Speaking of our trees, you’re in for a level of exquisite beauty no other city can touch.
You’ll walk the enchanted streets of Savannah, a glorious moon above as you make your way through the Southern live oak trees, with Spanish moss hanging from every branch. Believe us, Savannah’s tree moss alone is enough to awaken the dead. There’s a reason this plant (which, believe it or not, is not even moss. It’s closest relative is the pineapple!) is often associated with Southern Gothic imagery in the Deep South. At night, it’s so beautiful yet terrifying that every neuron in your brain will fire at once in a big electrical storm.
Medium oak trees. Large oak trees. Gigantic oak trees. All plush in greenery dripping with iconic Spanish moss. You will walk underneath their obsidian shadows and feel the mystery of Savannah course through your veins. Shiver in your bones, as the intricate patterns of the moss unfold before you. There’ll be enough hanging moss to drench your eyes in awe and flood your nostrils with the haunted perfume of Savannah. Prepare your camera for some delicious shots.
We can’t wait to see the breathless expression on your face! Go anywhere on Earth, you’ll never find such ghostly beauty. Believe us, we’ve been all across the globe ourselves —
From this moment on, forget everything you have ever heard or believed about what a tour should look like. You’re in for a tremendous surprise.
We, Chris & Reggie, the architects and pioneers behind this tour, are world travelers ourselves. We’ve been everywhere, about 100 different countries collectively! We have worked on and seen how tours operate — everywhere from Rome to Jerusalem, Ethiopia to Singapore — we’ve been on tours all around the world, and feel confident saying we know what makes a tour tick.
We adopted what was great, discarded what was not so great, and sacrificed our blood, sweat and tears polishing the tour until we felt it was perfect. Result: the best tour in the South, a terrific, outstanding, almost sensual experience you will never forget.
This company, Savannah Ghost Tours, was actually conceived to support an ongoing tech startup we’ve been operating for three years. It’s a trip planner called “Gypsy” that we believe you’re going to have installed on your phone within the next year or two. But don’t be mistaken! We’re giving Savannah Ghost Tours as much love as we give to our startup. Travel is in our blood.
Our tour will leave you spellbound.
Here’s one of the routes. Sometimes, we’ll mix things up to surprise you, but this is the general skeleton. Regardless of the route, our tour always takes at least 2 hours, usually more. Here’s how it often goes:
We’re sure you’ve been on boring tours before. We know we have. Just as a book is only as good as the narrator (did Stephen King say that?), a tour is only as good as the guide. He or she is controlling the pace, the tempo, and the storyline. When the guide sucks, the tour sucks.
We take great pride in our selection of guides. We pick them the same way good diamonds are picked in the mines. We’ll never let a bad one slip in. In fact, we stole the best guides from other tour companies simply because we treat and pay them much better.
Recently, we saw another company’s guide (we won’t mention names) leaving his group in the bar by themselves. He went outside and smoked multiple cigarettes while texting someone at length. The group looked confused, and for a good reason. It was the guide’s job to “glue” them all together, and he simply left for 15 minutes to have a smoke.
Something like that would have NEVER happened with us.
Not only that, we also limit our group size. While most companies allow 30+ persons to join, we’ll accept 18 maximum. We found this size to be optimal, and we have no problems making less money if that means you’ll have the best experience in our beloved home town.
By the way, we know some of you are still planning the trip as you’re reading this, trying to get everyone to agree. If you’re worried you’ll choose wrong, if you’re worried you’ll be scolded by your group because of a bad tour, don’t be! Our tour is awesome, we got your back.
Alcohol isn’t cheap, especially at some of the haunted bars we’ll take you to. If you went there by yourself, you’d probably spend around $50-100 just for the drinks. Add the souvenirs to the mix — the beautiful koozie, and the cool Polaroids. To that, add an actual ghost tour or pub crawl ticket (an average one would cost you about $35-45), and you can see how you’ll easily surpass the price we charge.
In short, you’re getting a great deal.
Also, remember that our guides aren’t average. We’ve picked the best of the best, and because our ticket price is higher, we can afford to pay them significantly more. As a result, the best ones flock to us. Once you realize this underlying fact, all our other claims start to make sense. Other companies have no choice but to hire amateurs with bad story-telling skills. Bless their heart!
Our guides are passionate, skilled, and upbeat (plus their Southern drawl is real!). They’re also very well paid, and show up to work happy. This makes all the difference in the world. When the guides are truly satisfied with their job, everyone enjoys — including you.
There’s also something to keep in mind. Our tour is 2+ hours long, just like other tours. The difference is that in most other tours you will spend about an entire hour collectively, 50% of your entire tour time, just waiting in line at the bar. With us, not a minute is wasted! Not so expensive now when you think about it, uh? Plus it’s a much better experience not to have to wait.
By the way, we should also mention that our souvenirs aren’t ‘cheap’ like those in the tourist shops. We selected the finest, softest materials we could get our hands on. The koozies are made of velvet covered neoprene – fancy, huh? 🙂 And the Polaroids — oh man! We love ‘em. We’re making pictures fun again! Remember when we were kids, when everybody had a Polaroid camera, and your mom would take a picture, and give you the photo to hold on to and blow on? Ah, the good ol’ days, before everyone had 5 million photos on Instagram 😉
In summary, the tour is not expensive at all when you think of it. You get double the effective tour time, a much smoother experience, plus we’re saving you all the money you’d otherwise spend on alcohol and souvenirs. It’s a tremendous deal, and a huge savings.
Come and see the darkness that lurks within our city, the darkness that Miley and her mom witnessed when they stayed in hotel 1790. Did this darkness change Miley… forever?
Gah-lee! Can you handle what Miley couldn’t?
Yes, we’ve discussed how fun and exciting the tour is – unlimited free alcohol, and lots of nice souvenirs. But let’s not forget that the core of this tour is ghosts, spirits, phantoms, and the unique paranormal activity that takes place in Savannah. After all, you’re in Savannah! You want to see something incredibly unique to our city, and that’s ghosts.
We’ll give you the best ghost tour money can buy, and scare the living hell out of you like it’s your first horror movie. The setup will be perfect. You’ll walk through ghostly trees and pass by haunted tombstones. Who knows, maybe you’ll even end up feeling… ‘things’ happening around you.
Is your mind strong enough for it??
Everybody knows walking is good for you. But our tour will be as good for your soul as it will be good for your body (except the alcohol). You’ll get the chance to meet new and exciting people just like you. People with a sophisticated travel taste who saw the value in paying for a high-quality, premium ghost tour / haunted pub crawl.
Throughout our haunted night, you’ll become friends with at least a few people from the group. We’ll also point you to a couple places (like restaurants) you MUST visit while you’re in Savannah. We have no financial incentive – it’s purely the places we simply love the most as locals.
It takes a special individual to fully appreciate the value of our tour. Are you that kind of person? Well, if you’re even half-interested, you may want to book your spot before it fills up. We don’t run too many tours, and our groups are absolutely limited in size. Don’t worry – there’s nothing to lose. Didn’t enjoy the tour? We’ll give you all your money back.
Our tour delivers such a consistent, premium experience that we can afford to make the most amazing guarantee in the business: If for any reason you thought our tour wasn’t worth the money, then by the end of it pull your tour guide aside, and ask for a refund.
We’ll hook it up and refund you 100% right when the tour ends, and you’ll get to keep your souvenirs. How’s that for a guarantee?! We’re the only tour in the whole state of Georgia that offers something like this.
We’re that confident you’ll love the tour we worked so hard to create.
The average tour uses average guides. With us, you get a premium tour from the best guides in the city. On other tours, there are children who panic, cry, and slow everyone down. Our tour is for adults only. On the average pub crawl, you have to pay for your drinks, and wait torturous amounts of time waiting in line at each bar. On our tour, unlimited alcohol is included, and you won’t have to use your credit card even once. So you effectively get an extra hour of tour time, instead of the waiting. Other tours will take you to haunted bars and haunted locations, but you’ll mostly be looking at those buildings from the outside. At Savannah Ghost Tours we have deals with all the locations, and you’ll get VIP treatment at each place. And don’t forget! We’ll indulge you in Southern swag for free: koozies and Polaroids. AND, you get a 100% guarantee that during your trip:
1. You’ll have the time of your life, or your full purchase cost returned.
2. You’ll drink to your heart’s content, or your full purchase cost returned.
3. You’ll feel you made the right decision, or your full purchase cost returned.
You will get:
* A premium Savannah ghost tour, walking to all haunted locations.
* Adult-only! No kids. Socialize with adults instead.
* Haunted bar hopping.
* Free, unlimited top quality booze.
* No wasting time standing around bars.
* A Savannah Ghost Tour koozie.
* Polaroid pictures with your group.
You will get to experience Savannah’s Top 5 in one tour:
2. Drinking outside.
3. Live oak trees.
4. Old architecture.
5. Famous squares.
This is your surest way to see everything Savannah has to offer, and all for $97 per person. So you can either take our tour and see the real Savannah, or skip it and leave without ever seeing the dark side of America’s most haunted city. Book now:
This is what happens when you’re doing things from the heart, with passion. We love this tour.
Yes, the Coronavirus won’t stop us.
We don’t pay the same prices the customer would pay if he went to these bars by himself. This is because of the volume of people that we bring. Because we work on scale, we get much better rates. It’s a win-win for everyone.
The concept of ghosts didn’t just appear in the 1800s. It’s been going on for thousands of years, at least since the time of the Old Testament. Ever since recorded history, human beings have told stories about ghosts and spirits. Books have been written. Movies have been made. There’s something in the human soul that craves spiritual connection. When you hear the stories and see the camera recordings we have, you’ll have to decide for yourself.
It’s really hot during the day from June through September, but once the sun sets it feels really nice, and that’s when we run the tours. Overall, the weather is great here. Perfect during the spring and fall, and winters are incredibly mild.
Just join us and see. Worst case, you can ask for a 100% refund. We won’t ask any questions.
We’ve never had anybody possessed, traumatized or hurt in any way. We’ll give you so many spirits, the spirits won’t bother to mess with you. Get it? 😉
Don’t worry, you’ll still have other things to do by yourself later on. We’ll even show you all the nice things you can do afterwords, and point you where to go. As for the question, of course the tour is constricting — you’re part of a group. But think of it like a movie, where the director has engineered a dream for you to follow. If the movie is good, you don’t care about the lack of your freedom in deciding the characters’ fate, or how long it takes. You happily follow along, your heart beating in suspense and wonder as the plot continues.
You won’t. Remember, these are people just like you — paying top dollar for a ghost tour. People usually get along very well on our tours.
Not at all. Unlike other companies, we are not a chain operating in multiple cities. We focus on Savannah, and on one tour only. In other words, we’re not KFC, we’re Ms. Wilkes (you gotta try her fried chicken when you come to Savannah!!!). And there won’t be any sucking taking place by the guides. It’s as raw, real, and as authentic as a tour can get.
Every month has its own magic. Every season comes with a tremendous new burst of unique growth. The plants look a bit different, the atmosphere changes a little. But it’s always great.
We’ll lend you umbrellas (ghost-branded!) for the tour.
We expect you to know how much alcohol you can handle. We won’t tolerate any obnoxious behavior. If someone starts harassing people, that will be the end of his or her tour.
It’s not! While it’s true that you’ll pay double the ticket price with us, don’t forget what you’re getting: a premium tour guide, exclusive access to haunted locations, free souvenirs, and most important: free, unlimited, top-quality alcohol. If you did all that separately, you’d have easily spent about twice as much as what we charge.
The most dangerous part of the tour is when we walk on the cobblestones on River Street, from Bayou Cafe to Factors Walk. Not a big deal though — it’s just a short patch of cobblestones — and will take less than 30 seconds to cross. Just be careful.
It depends on your level of mobility. Everything except for one location is handicap friendly. Even there, some folks can easily do it with enough will. We just mean that it’s not technically handicap-friendly. It’s an old building, about 200 years old, with a narrow passage at the entrance to go through (not large enough for a wheelchair). If needed, we are happy to help.
Of course. Just email or call us at least 24 hours in advance, and we’ll cancel your tickets and refund you.
If you don’t drink, the “normal” ghost tours in Savannah will be a better deal (since you’re not going to spend money on alcohol anyway). Also, if you’re looking to do a tour with your children, we’re not a fit. This is an adult-only (21+) premium tour, with free, unlimited alcohol.
We’re protecting them by not allowing them to come on a dark, scary tour 🙂 Nah, the truth is that all the other tours already accept kids. But 80% of all ghost tours are made of adults! These people want an adult experience, free of interruptions. This is the niche our tour has carved for itself. An adult-only, premium, all-inclusive Savannah ghost tour. We believe businesses that chase everything stand for nothing.
To make up for your drinks, we’ll give you free entrance tickets to Webb’s Military Museum and the Bonaventure Cemetery Tour.
Our payment system is 100% secure and encrypted. Don’t worry, it’s not the 1990’s.
Curious about the tour? You should be! Come join us — you have nothing to lose. If you didn’t like it (won’t happen!), you’ll get 100% of your money back. And you’ll get to finish the tour smarter, truly knowing what the real Savannah is. Plus you’ll keep the koozie and Polaroid pictures. How’s that?
We may not be the cheapest. And we may not allow children on the tour. But if you can live with that, you’ll get the most premium tour the South has to offer, with free, unlimited alcohol, an interruption-free experience, and with the best tour guides in the entire state.
Before we stepped in, your only options were cheap tours with long lines. But not anymore. You won’t have to wait in lines, and there’ll be no kids to kill the flow. We’re confident you’ll enjoy the tour at least as much as we enjoyed creating it.
So come and join us on a euphoric adventure among the ghosts of the past. When you’re ready for the real thing, when you’re ready for a ghost tour that won’t waste your time, a tour that will entertain the living hell out of you, we’ve got it for ya. We’ll load you with alcohol, as much as you want, and we promise you’ll have the time of your life with either your friends, family, or strangers.
So don’t leave Savannah before you see her dark side in style. What excuse do you have for coming all the way down here without experiencing the absolute best? Don’t go on a cheap, boring tour. Come join us. Book now:
