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.

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!

We recently did the Grave Encounters Tours w/ Telfair Academy and it was a waste of money. The tour started off great well at least I thought it was going to be when we were greeted with the first “ghost” character. She was amazing and full of energy and really set the tone

Thought we would get some history and ghost stories but only got boring quick snippets of a tale that had no real start or finish. No one on bus laughed. Everyone looked as bored as i felt. I am fine with made up rumors but these were not even good stories and terrible story

Very disappointed in the Grave Encounters Tour with Telfair Museum. The windows on the trolley were covered with plastic so you could not see the tour of the streets clearly. A lot of money to pay for something you couldn't see what the tour guide was talking about. WILL NEVER
