What a wonderful adventure! We thoroughly enjoyed the stories and mysteries of this tour. We visited many interesting sites and the walk was at a pace everyone could enjoy!
We chose well.
We had an amazing tour March 3rd @ 7:00pm. T.C. was our guide and provided personal hearing devices with ear buds so we could listen from up to 200ft and take pictures while listening to his presentation. He provided a lot of historical content and used a tablet to show historical pictures tied to the spirits that were discussed. My Daughter was able to capture two photos with faces while my wife had pictures of orbs in some of her photos. I saw a white ball of light appear from beside my wife and travel to just over her head where it disappeared. The tour lasted approximately 2 hours. One person in our group was in a motorized wheel chair and was able to participate and keep up with the group. TC made it a point to provide directions to support the power chair movement while directing the rest of the group keeping us focused on the tour. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the paranormal and the history of Savannah. In observing other groups moving through the area TC was well prepared and worth the money we spent.
Oh my goodness! This walking tour was fun! Again Our guide T.C. Made the walking tour fun and suspensful,showing pictures and telling stories the would give you chills about Historic Savannah. A must do on the Ghost Tours available.
