Led by a local guide, the bone-chilling experience includes visits to several of the city’s haunted dwellings and sites of ghostly apparitions. Learn of the cloak-and-dagger exploits of 18th-century pirates at The Pirates’ House and hear of the Savannah ghosts who are doomed to spend eternity among the living.
