Tours this weekend

Taking a last minute trip this weekend so just started planning!

Which tour company should we use? I have found good and bad reviews for both: Shannon Scott tours and Savannah Heritage tours.

I think Explore Savannah is the best tour company in town. It's not a big outfit but does a great job. They are nice folks. Good luck.

Are you looking for a ghost tour? Do you want a private or group tour? If you're doing a ghost tour, I suggest booking as soon as possible. I believe Blue Orb has been sold out over a month now for the 10:00 tour on Friday and Saturday nights. I'm sure Explore Savannah does a good ghost tour if he's not already full. Shannon may still have some availability. I think Shannon does a good job on a ghost tour. A ghost tour is normally a history tour with ghost stories thrown in. In all probability you won't have a paranormal experience. Most of the tour guides that I've been on will tell you about their paranormal experiences. Savannah Heritage is a motorized tour. I suggest doing a walking ghost tour if possible. This is the biggest weekend for ghost tours in Savannah and most companies will be running extra tours so the sooner you book the more likely you'll get a good tour with a great guide.

I will suggest you consider Savannah Dan. He is a very nice guy who gives a great group tour twice daily so you can book with him at the last minute. He loves being a tour guide and it shows in his reviews.

I highly recommend Savannah Rambles. I take tours in just about every location I visit and Dirk is the best guide I've ever had. Check out his website and his background working for the Savannah Historican Association -
