Just ok...

Just “ok”. For a quite seasoned haunted and history tour taker I have to say we were quite disappointed. We’ve taken over a dozen tours (most recently 3 in the past month in Savannah) and over a dozen the past 2 years in New Orleans, Austin, Williamsburg, and other cities. This was not the most exciting tour and the facts a little off. It’s not that this took place during Covid, but there was definitely a lackluster to the tour. Our guide was sweet, but there something missing that could have added excitement.

It was so good and creepy! We really loved our guide. She was lovely and kept it really interesting l. I really liked the tidbits of stories she would give from other guests who had taken the tour. It’s great because the ghost stories keep continuing—it’s not just a static tale! I definitely got the goosebumps!
