My best friend of almost 40 years and I decided to come to Savannah to celebrate our 50th year of life and of course, had to book a ghost tour as one of our explorations as she loves paranormal stuff! We met Jess last night on the 13 Ghosts tour at 9 pm. It was Jess' first tour and she did such a great job! She is a great storyteller and really kept the group talking and interested in the tour. We had such a great time and came to love Savannah even more than we already did! Thank you, Jess for treating us to such a great experience. The history behind the stories was fascinating to learn about.

Usually my wife and I don't do tours but this is our 1st time to Savannah and decided to go ahead and book one. So glad we did. Dennis was our guide and he was extremely knowledgeable of local history. He talked the whole time but also had the time to answer questions. We would certainly go on another tour and would love for Dennis to be our guide.

We had Dennis for the Wormsloe and Bonaventure tours and he was absolutely wonderful! So very knowledgeable and fun, you can tell he’s been doing it for years and that his heart is in it. He was conscientious and patient with our group of 18 and I would highly recommend him!

Locations were interesting and worth the visit. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Easy pick up and drop off from Historical District for the tour.

Dennis was a wonderful tour guide!! We had a great time, thank you!
