The Perfect Marriage of Haunts and History
Explore spooky and seductive Savannah, “America’s most haunted city”, as you take a 90-minute stroll through its squares – from Spanish moss to sunstroke, haints to Hoodoo, murdered masters to suicidal servants, disrespect of the dead to natural disasters, there’s a reason why we’re the hostess city with the “mostest” ghosts. Your guide, Sarah, is a true English rose with an authentic English accent, just like Savannah’s original settlers, and her intuitive gifts allow her to tap into the spiritual realm as she leads you on an adventure through a city that is an eclectic blend of southern charm and stories that will alarm.
Meet Your Guide
As a tour guide, massage therapist and translator/writer, I am sometimes described as a “Renaissance woman”. From my childhood in England, I was captivated by mythology, history and the paranormal. I was a sensitive little girl who felt and sensed things that others did not. This goes hand in hand with a natural aptitude for energy work and healing. These are skills that I am today able to use to tune in to both the living and the dead. These days, my bookshelves are lined with ghost and history books. It was perhaps this active imagination and thirst for knowledge that instilled in me a passion for storytelling and educating. I believe that history and our ancestors have much to teach us if we are only open to learning. Therefore, I strive to tell historically accurate stories in an entertaining manner for an impactful and memorable history lesson. I have always had a dramatic personality, and enjoy singing and performing, so I’m happy to say that tour guests can also benefit from these skills on my tours. As a writer and researcher, I have found that we never stop learning, and so I continuously further my education on Savannah through books, Podcasts and conversing with locals and other tour guides.

This tour combined the paranormal with the long and interesting history of the founding of Savannah. The stories were personal and engaging...and honoring of those whose lives have shaped this historic Southern port city. Sarah brings the stories and the people in them back to life with her enthusiasm, attention to detail and connection to the present. Highly recommend.

Sarah was amazing! I am from Savannah and found her to be a wealth of accurate history. We got goose bumps time after time from her historical ghost stories, she really brings the history to life! Such a gifted story teller. I loved that we chose a private tour with Sarah instead of the impersonal huge group tour buses or throngs of group ghost tours where you can’t ask questions or hear them, we could get a cocktail or snacks at bars with her and take our time, cover more in depth history at our leisure, walk to different parts of downtown and learn about the rich haunted history. I learned so much, and I’m from here! she was so lovely!!!! Highly recommend her!!!!

I would highly recommend Savannah Soul Encounters! This is totally private and very affordable compared to other private tours! Not being in a big group makes it feel more intimate and Sarah asked what our interests were so she could tailor to what we would like to experience or learn. Sarah is a wonderful storyteller, very knowledgeable about history and makes the tour fun! Sarah was flexible on dates & times and super helpful in offering recommendations for restaurants, cocktail bars and places to go! I would recommend this tour not only because it's private, but also because she will make you feel like you're a friend! Thanks Sarah!

Our guide was Sarah and she was amazing! She gave us a private tour, and it was perfect for our small group of three. She mixed equal parts of history and ghost stories, and also sprinkled in recommendations for us during our stay in Savannah. Overall we had a great time and would definitely recommend!

My daughters planned this weekend for my 50th birthday and I must say that this tour was the crème de la crème of walking tours. I say that because Sarah was soooo great at storytelling it made the facts we learned about interesting with the cool and funny haunted twists! I would say Sarah is knowledgeable about Savannah's history and experienced in delivery of all the facts!
