The best way to communicate with spirits is to find them at their favorite pub, where they're likely trapped for an eternity due to pending vengeance and unpaid bar tabs. Share a paranormal pitcher with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one ticket to The Pubs and Taverns of Old Savannah Tour or The Haunted Ghost Tour with The Savannah Walks (up to a $16 value). The pub tour meets near the winged lion fountain on Bay Street every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at 8 p.m., with each outing lasting about two hours. The ghost tour departs from Johnson Square daily at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., and lasts 90 minutes.
On The Pubs and Taverns of Old Savannah Tour, survivors and witnesses of the city's bar-going banshees guide ghastly groups on a spooky stroll through the haunted and spirited spaces resting amid Savannah's historic district. Tour goers can imbibe a pint or stay dry as a whittled femur whistle as the knowledgeable guide recants the tales of scandal and specter that surround each pub. Walking explorers can expect to learn about a slew of local legends including the spirits of Savannah's pirates, who are known to reveal their X-marked booty in exchange for the next round.
The Haunted Ghost Tour experience enables omen-seeking on-lookers to explore paranormalities similar to the pub and tavern tour, but also ups accessibility by allowing all ages to scare themselves smart via fact snackery. Similarly knowledgeable locals lead brave bunches through shadow-laden spaces, exploring moss-covered landscapes marked by aging Arbor Day focal points. Because the tour involves no alcoholic consumption, families and folks who fear fermentation are always welcome to attend.
