Awesome! We have done several different ghost tours in Savannah, so we were worried about hearing the same stories. Not with T.C.! He was very knowledgeable and has obviously spent a lot of time researching the city. The tour was informative and interesting. We would love to do

Great tour about the city that is built on its dead. We saw a different side of Savannah last night thanks to TC. We were given headsets so that we could maintain distance during the pandemic. TC also went above and beyond to make sure we made it back to our Airbnb safely.
