“GENTEEL & BARD IS SAVANNAH’S HIGH-END WALKING GHOST TOUR.”
WHAT: Genteel & Bard’s Famous Savannah Dark History & Ghost Encounter Tour is a historical walking tour that’s too dark for daylight. You’ll experience our highly-curated, classic storytelling performance at its creepiest while hearing tales of Savannah’s dark history and the ghost lore that resulted. You’ll also hear accounts of modern day paranormal encounters. Please note: we can’t guarantee you’ll see a ghost while on our tour – we’ve tried, but they just won’t perform on demand.
YOUR HOST: At Genteel & Bard we are proud to boast the most talented, well-read, and passionate historians and performers. Each of the guides on our staff has a long resume, as in years, of storytelling performance as well as months of ghost tour training specific to our Genteel & Bard production. No matter your host, you can rest assured you’ll be walking Savannah’s haunted streets with a talented, passionate, and knowledgable storytelling professional. You can read more about our individual guides here.
WHERE: On our ghost tour you’ll see famously haunted Savannah locations, including the infamous Sorrel-Weed House; Savannah’s Colonial “Hanging Square”; the mysterious Foley House Inn; Colonial Park Cemetery; and more. Please note that none of Savannah’s walking ghost tour companies go inside of these haunted locations as most of them are private residences, working businesses, or museums. The entirety of your tour will take place outside. Lucky for us, the streets of Savannah are just as haunted (some say even more haunted). Savannah is a necropolis – a city built over its dead – so most of the things that go bump in the night around here, often do so outside. Including the zombies – no we’re not kidding.
DISTANCE / DURATION: Genteel & Bard’s Savannah Dark History & Ghost Encounter Tour is apprx 2 hrs long, and covers about 3/4 of a mile of Savannah’s Historic District.
TECH: At the start of your tour you’ll be given a small wireless receiver and a set of souvenir earbuds. Your host speaks into a wireless microphone throughout your tour experience, allowing you to easily hear your guide from up to 100 feet away.
