    Miss Joan was an amazing tour guide! She was a great storyteller and really brought the Secrets of Savannah to life on my Illuminations tour with a touch of sass and humor that was entertaining and very engaging. She was very knowledgeable and there was never a dull moment!

    Based on the other reviews, the tour company has taken the feedback to heart and really cranked up the spooky stories. In fact, the majority of the stories and information given tonight were ghostly. We really enjoyed it, and it is definitely eerie to ride around at night

    We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. Unfortunately, our drivers are only allowed to park in certain locations for a limited time per city ordinances, which may explain some of the circling for longer stories. Our tour guides share unique and historical stories that may give you chills, but the tour itself is not meant to be a ghost tour. We will take your comments into consideration as we review our website description moving forward.
