What to Expect
This trolley tour through haunted Savannah begins with evening hotel pickup. From there, your itinerary depends on which tour option you’ve booked. Those on the Telfair Academy tour start by exploring this spooky historic landmark known as one of the most haunted houses in the US. You might even catch sight of a ghost or two while you venture through its doorways. If you opted for dinner at the Pirate's House, you’ll start at the more than 200-year-old tavern that was frequented by seamen in its past life. After a pirate-themed dinner, head to the rum cellar for a look at where booze passed through during Prohibition. Both tour options include a trolley ride around Savannah’s Historic District. Your spirited guide tells you the stories and the history of ghost sightings as you pass through the city during the scariest time of all—night. Your tour ends in central Savannah.

We had an amazing time! Our guide had very detailed stories to tell us as we passed each area. It didn’t sound scripted, more like he had actually experienced the historical events. The TelfIair was still closed due to Covid but we were able to get off the bus and walk

Had an absolutely great time! The local knowledge of the narrator and the addition of the “ghosts” made for a memorable time. Amazed at the tour of the Telfair mansion as well. Will definitely recommend!
