For the past 20 years, 6th Sense World has been shedding light on Savannah’s haunted heritage.
With their six different ghost tours, finding wandering souls all around the city and exploring eerie cemeteries. Their most recent addition – The Savannah Ghosts Investigation Tour – not only takes guests throughout the streets and squares, but allows them to participate in a ghost hunt with Patrick Burns, star of “Haunting Evidence” and one of the world’s most acclaimed and respected paranormal researchers.
“The Savannah Ghosts Investigation Tour with Patrick Burns is an unprecedented kind of walking tour that utilizes paranormal investigation equipment, as well as the cityscape as the platform,” Angela Lynn, the CEO and president of 6th Sense World, said. “After years of touring the country conducting investigations, Patrick Burns has the most experience as an investigator of any storyteller in Savannah’s streets today.”
But the goal isn’t just to find ghosts.
The goal it to share the stories of spirits and unfortunate mishaps at homes around the city. 6th Sense World’s 90-minute “America’s Most Haunted City” tour guides take guests to all of the spooky spots. You will hear of the execution of Alice Riley, a known sorceress who died by hanging in 1735. The tour takes guests to the Hampton-Lillibridge Home, which has been said to be exorcised at least three times.
During the two-hour “Sixth Sense Savannah” tour, guests visit the Mercer House. A number of murders and accidental deaths have been tied to the house. It was once the home of the controversial Jim Williams from “Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil.” The Old Candler Hospital is another stop during this tour. Guests will learn about the yellow fever outbreak and discover what was an operating morgue tunnel and also an asylum. “Everyone from the common person to those with gifts don’t like being near it even if they’ve paid us to take them there,” Lynn exclaimed.
But it’s the two-hour, adults only “Original Midnight Tour” that really delves deep.
This tour explores everything from Savannah’s past ties with the occult and shadow people, as well as first hand accounts of human possession, spirit photography, exorcism, voodoo and vampyres.
“We go where the ghosts go. If there’s new happenings, new evidence, we evolve the stories and the visitor experience thusly,” Founder Shannon Scott said. “That has been the 6th Sense World credo since the beginning. We are paranormal pioneers pushing the parameters of time and space!”
