I just wanted to let those of you visiting Savannah know to take some of the posts about tours you read on here with a grain of salt. It seems there is quite a lot of self promotion going on in disguise. I notice one particular poster here that likes to talk ugly towards a couple of the more popular tours in town while pushing one particular company- although subtly she still pushes it- I think you can figure it out if you pay attention. I'm not sure what her association is with it but even the owner of that company is on here- it's easy to figure out her id=email. One of her posts claims she "took the tour with friends"- but she runs it.
I am not a ghost tour fan- but through my work I have associations with several of the bed and breakfast and hotels in town. I can say from the people I know there the one she promotes is not one of the top recommended ones in town. I don't know why- but most of the hotel workers- that are not employees of the trolley groups- want to recommend the best so they might get tips back for the recommendation. I had never heard of hers until I got on here and started seeing it posted several times- that's when I started checking the posts they seemed fishy to me.
I want to point out I have not taken any of the tours here so I do not have personal experience. I'm just sharing what I do know in hopes of helping those looking for good recommendations.
I travel a lot with work and I like to get the best advice I can about the places I'm going. I got a lot of good advise on here last summer. My travels are starting up again so I jumped back on- so I could plan my trips better this year.
I recommend waiting until you get here and ask around about the tours. I feel most people on here are legit. It's just these two or three ladies- with multiple ids- that seem to be in question.
I hope you won't think that everyone in Savannah is like them.
Enjoy Savannah and if you like pizza you might run into me at vinny's one night :-)
