It’s no secret that Savannah is brimming with spirits.
When sunlight gives way to the glow of old street lamps and an iridescent moon, the city transforms. “Nightfall in Savannah works like a black light, revealing all of the moving pieces you won’t perceive in the daylight,” says Heather Szeder, owner and operator of Ghostown Tours.
“The experiences we offer were made possible by the birth in the 1970s of three paranormal-sensitive sisters, who dedicated their lives to the search for truth and evidence of the world beyond,” Szeder continues. One of Ghostown’s most popular tours seeks to lift the veil that separates the living and the dead, affording visitors a glimpse into the supernatural realm. The 13 Ghosts Haunted Savannah Tour is an adventure in paranormal research and history, led by your very own paranormal-sensitive guide. The stories you will hear are the intersection of meticulous investigation, personal experience and local oral history.
But don’t let the name Ghostown fool you, as their tours also cross into the land of the lively.
If it’s Savannah’s nightlife you seek, look no further than the Yes, Queen! Pub Crawl, the only drag queen-guided tour of its kind in the world. Szeder explains, “This pub crawl and sing-a-long takes the party to the streets,” where you will sing, dance, tap into your inner fabulous and gain entry to Savannah’s celebrated cabaret, the legendary Club One.
Yes, Queen! takes off at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. The Six Feet Under Tour, a bona fide experience in using paranormal equipment, starts at 8 p.m. nightly, and the 13 Ghosts of Haunted Savannah tours get underway each night at 5 p.m., 7 p.m., 9 p.m., and 11 p.m. For the earlier birds, Ghostown offers a Morning Walk Ghost and History Tour that kicks off at 10 a.m.
Ghostown Tour experiences last from 2 to 2½ hours. Whether you’re tiptoeing past tombs or parading through the streets, you will want your camera! Most of all, be prepared for anything to happen.
Whether you’re a believer or a skeptic, you will discover the unforgettable with Ghostown Tours.
“We combine two key aspects of Savannah,” enthuses Szeder, “nightlife and rich paranormal history. Ultimately, what we’re offering are experiences. Our goal is to blow your mind!”
