Ghost & Supernatural Tour FAQ

Will I enjoy a ghost tour if I don’t believe in ghosts? Most likely, yes, though you will have to be more careful in choosing a tour. The majority of Savannah’s ghost walks are essentially folk history, recounting popular ghost and supernatural stories in a way that should appeal to believers and non-believers alike.

A few tours are specifically meant to be exercises in ghost hunting, known to its practitioners as “paranormal investigation,” where the emphasis is on using various devices to find evidence of ghostly activity yourself. If you don’t believe, it is probably best to give these a miss.

Can I take a cemetery ghost tour? No. The City of Savannah does not allow ghost tours to be conducted inside its cemeteries. The cemeteries are also closed at night. Many tours will tell ghost stories from outside the Colonial Park Cemetery gates (you will be able to see into it), but they will not enter the graveyard itself. You can, however, take daytime historical tours of Bonaventure, Laurel Grove or Colonial Park Cemeteries.

Will we go inside any haunted buildings? In most cases, no. Almost all guides will tell their stories from the street. Most of Savannah’s haunted places are privately owned and not open to the public, though there are a few exceptions. Some paranormal investigation tours (see below) and haunted pub crawls do enter properties where the presence of ghosts or other spirits is claimed. As a rule, unless the tour website specifically states you will enter any particular locations, assume that you will not.

Should I take a walking or riding ghost tour? If you are able to, taking a walking tour is generally far more atmospheric than a trolley tour. A trolley or other riding tour, on the other hand, can be a welcome break from walking after a long day of sightseeing.

Are ghost tours suitable for children? A few ghost walks are specifically intended to be family-friendly (though these may still be too frightening for very young children); more generally, earlier tours are more likely to be family-oriented than later ones. Please be aware than some tours allow alcohol (even if they are marketed as family-friendly). Tours with profanity or especially risqué content will usually only allow adults to attend.

Is alcohol permitted on tours? Savannah has an open container law, which permits the public consumption of alcohol in small cups. Many guides permit alcohol on their tours (including a few marketed as family-friendly), and some actively encourage it by beginning the tour at a drinking establishment.

Please be aware, however, that whilst public drinking is legal, your guide will most likely not tolerate overt signs of inebriation or disruption to the rest of group. Boisterous behavior will probably get you removed from the tour!

Several companies also offer guided pub crawls, which mix a few ghost stories into a visit to several reputedly-haunted local bars and pubs.
