Ghosts roam the earth to complete unfinished tasks, such as making peace with a loved one or picking up the dry cleaning.

Endorsed by the Georgia Ghost Society, The Savannah Walks' learned guides relate tales of local hauntings and legends on a spirited 90-minute sojourn through the old colonial portion of the city's historic district. Guests amble one leisurely mile through Savannah's squares and past stately homes, learning about house hauntings and exorcisms while searching for apparitions hiding behind mossy trees or nickels hiding in sidewalk cracks. Along the way, mystery-minded meanderers will learn why Savannah is considered one of the most haunted cities in the country, and can pose questions to the spirit-savvy guides, all of whom are well-versed in local superstitions, old Gullah traditions, and eerie whisper-speaking.
