Heading to Savannah this October to get your spook on? The city is known for being “built on its dead”, so there's certainly no shortage of tours about paranormal activities. (Just ask any local if they've ever been stuck behind a hearse from one of the ghost tour companies, and I guarantee their answer will be a frustrated, “YES!”.) Here's a comprehensive list of the current ghost tours in Savannah GA to get you started on your spooky adventure.

Which Tour is Best?
If I had to pick my favorite? It depends on your goal. For factual tours, I'd probably select one of the Ghost City Tours. I appreciate that they don't perpetuate myths and they flat out tell you which ghost stories are legends and which have real truth behind them. Don't just take my advice, they're rated #3 out of all walking tours in Savannah on TripAdvisor (not just ghost tours). They're my top choice if you want an informative tour that separates fact from fiction. (TIP: Try to request Nicodemus on the tour, as he definitely gets into it and plays the part!)
However, if you prefer to laugh during your outing, definitely select the Hearst Ghost Tours. They're a bit kitchsy, but their hosts are definitely there to entertain. Read reviews from others on Trip Advisor to get a feel for how fun they are.
Don't forget to order your copy of the Illustrated Haunted Savannah Map before you go. It's the type of souvenir you'll keep forever because it's filled with so many fun facts! You may want to grab one for Bonaventure Cemetery, too, while your cart is open. The cemetery is beautiful and sits alongside a scenic bluff of the Wilmington River.
Finally, you can't head to Savannah without stopping by River Street, so be sure to check out my Ultimate Guide to River Street if you haven't seen it already.
