Full description
For the last 100 years, Americans have kept ghosts in their place, letting them out only in October. It’s no coincidence that the most famous Christmas story is a ghost story. Charles Dickens’ "A Christmas Carol" was first published in 1843, and its story about a man tormented by a series of ghosts the night before Christmas belonged to a once-rich, now mostly forgotten tradition of telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve. Dickens’ supernatural yuletide terror was no outlier, since for much of the 19th century, the holiday was indisputably associated with ghosts and specters. Christmas in Savannah has always been a magical time of the year. However, for many of the less fortunate souls, the season brought tragedy and disaster. Grab a hot cup of cocoa and join in to resurrect the long-lost tradition of the telling of ghost stories during the holiday season. Walk through Savannah with your own paranormal sensitive and hear stories of holidays past.

My fiancé and I took the 7pm Christmas tour with Garrett and really enjoyed it. You don’t go very far, and you only stop at a few places, but our guide was very knowledgeable, well spoken, and interesting, so he made each stop worthwhile. If you get a bad guide I feel like it wouldn’t be as good, but he kept me captivated with his storytelling. The history of Savannah and all the places we stopped at were fascinating to me. As someone who struggles to hear people sometimes, I also appreciated how loudly and clearly he spoke to the whole group.

This was a typical ghost tour that was titled Ghosts of Christmas past but it had nothing to do with Christmas. Guide was knowledgeable and we enjoyed it.
