When people hear Savannah lays claim to the expression, “America’s Most Haunted City®”, it leaves them asking “WTH?” (What The Haunted?) Is it true or just a wild claim? You and your family can witness for yourselves haunted Savannah with chilling stories and eerie properties that paved the road to Savannah’s infamous reputation! This 90-minute haunted walking tour bring chilling stories to life, stops by eerie properties, and shares Pre-Colonial ghost history with some tales from the 21st century. Learn about the hauntings and paranormal activity that put Savannah on the map as the ghostly city of greatness.
We can tell you its more than hype! In 2002, we were the recipients of the America’s Most Haunted City® Award on behalf of the City of Savannah, from the esteemed American Institute of Parapsychology, the world’s most respected field research group. OK, but what does it all mean?
The America’s Most Haunted City Tour is our way of taking you through the oldest and most haunted parts of Savannah’s Historic District and we cover the history of this haunted heritage and reputation by starting at the beginning. We delve into and visit the site of a witch execution, Savannah’s oldest lost and extant cemeteries, haunted 19th-century hotels, all the way to a modern day hag attack. And this walking ghost tour would not be complete without laying eyes on a house that has been exorcised four times and that Duke University called “America’s most psychically possessed house.” So yes, this Savannah tour is full fledged, full scope, and conducted by those in the know – and yet entirely family-friendly. If you’re the Addams Family that is.
