Explore Savannah's amazing history on a Cemetery Tour

Ghost City Tours is primarily known as a Ghost Tour Company - as expected. However, after uncovering so much interesting history while researching our Ghost tours, we decided to share that knowledge with the tourists who come to Savannah. So in 2018, we introduced our Cemetery Tours in Savannah - and they've been the most popular tours in Savannah since.

As with our other tours, our Cemetery Tours are heavily researched. You'll never look at Savannah the same way after joining our guides. The depth of knowledge our Cemeteries Tours include is amazing! But don't worry - these tours are not some history lesson. You'll still be entertained. You'll share a laugh or many along the way.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have some questions about our Cemetery Tours - and you don't really want to call. Below you can find the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our tours.

Are these walking tours?

ALL of our Cemetery Tours are Walking Tours

Here in Savannah, all of our tours are walking tours. This includes our Cemetery Tours. While we know you can go on a bus tour of Bonaventure Cemetery (not Colonial Park), we feel that the best experience is being able to walk amongst the graves, sitting on a bench, and taking in the whole feeling of being in some of the most historic cemeteries in America.

  • Walking Tours allow you to immerse yourself in the stories we tell.
  • Walking is good for you, and it is a great way to walk off that amazing dinner you just had!
  • You're not crammed into a vehicle, almost certainly squished in next to someone you'd rather not be squished up against.

Can I buy tickets for your CemeteryTours through Groupon?

We know that there are some Cemetery Tour Companies in Savannah that offer their tickets for sales on Groupon. And if you're not worried about the quality of the tour you're getting - you can certainly spend some time on Groupon or Living Social and find tickets available. However, you won't see any from Ghost City.

We know that our Cemetery Tours are of the highest quality, with thousands of reviews from tourists and locals who have enjoyed our tours. In addition, our tours often sell out - especially on the weekends and on Holidays. There is simply no reason why we'd sell our tours on Groupon.

Companies that sell on Groupon are taking a very substantial cut to their revenue. If their company was as good as they claim it was - they wouldn't have to sell $20 cemetery tour tickets for $6 on Groupon. Even if you do not choose Ghost City - do yourself a favor and stay far away from companies who offer their tours on Groupon.

Are pets allowed on your Cemetery Tours?

Pets are not permitted on the Cemetery Tours

Don't get mad at us! The rules of the Cemeteries we visit clearly state that you are not permitted to bring pets such as dogs into the Cemeteries. For this reason, Ghost City does not allow any pets on our Cemetery Tours in Savannah.

Are these tours Ghost Tours?

Our Cemetery Tours do not talk about Ghosts

While both Bonaventure Cemetery and Colonial Park Cemetery have more than their fair share of ghost stories, we do not talk about them on our Cemetery Tours. Out of respect for the families of those laid to rest, we prefer to spend our time talking our their lives and the history of the Cemetery itself.

Once I purchase tickets, can I get a refund?

All ticket sales are final. Like any other performance, and yes, our Tours are performances, we can only admit a limited number of people. Therefore, we cannot give you a refund should you decide not to attend.

However, we're not a bunch of unreasonable monsters. We allow our guests to reschedule their tickets to another date or time, as long as you do it at least 12 hours in advance.

For your family cemetery tours, what is the age of a child?

When it comes to buying tickets for our tours, the following classes of tickets are based on age.

  • Ages 0-5: We do not charge anything for anyone 5 or under. They get to attend our tours for free!
  • Ages 6-11: This is considered a child ticket as defined by the city of Savannah.
  • Ages 12+: This age range is considered an adult ticket.

What days of the week are your Cemetery Tours available for?

All of our Tours run 7 days per week. In addition, we often open up additional time slots for our tours as the original time sells out. If you want to book a tour Ghost City Tours will ensure that we are able to fit you in a tour. We still advise you to purchase your tickets as soon as you know which tour you want to take.
