Walking backward while talking is useful for leading a tour, demonstrating a moonwalk, or retreating from a room full of ominously staring toddlers. See the reverse saunter put to good use with today's Groupon: for $9, you get an adult ticket for a history, ghost, or pub walking tour (an $18 value) from C Savannah.
C Savannah quenches curiosities with illuminating walking tours that sate sightseers with revealing nuggets of Savannah's historical lore. Follow the Remembering Savannah history tour as garrulous guides share anecdotes from the city's almost 300-year-old narrative. Walkers learn about the lives of past Savannah citizens, including original settlers and Civil War soldiers, while viewing buildings and fountains built with funds earned betting on Aaron Burr's dueling skills.
Paranormal pioneers embark on an eerie evening with the A Haunting Good Time ghost tour, which lets journeyers hear tales of pirates, cotton barons, and riverboat croupiers who are rumored to haunt Factors Walk. The haunted pub tour leads tippling tourists on a trip to some of the city’s best-known pubs and cocktail bars where alcohol, like health insurance at a rodeo, is encouraged but not provided or required.
All tours meet by the winged-griffin fountain at 42 East Bay Street. A city and area map with attraction highlights are included to aid in supplementary exploration and make sure tourists don't waste their money on unaccredited street cartographers. Check each tour's online schedule for available dates and times.
