Frequently Asked Questions

Many of our frequently asked questions are on this page. If you have other questions NOT mentioned here, please email us at info@hearseghosttours.com

What time are your tours?

6, 8, and 10pm nightly.

Are you only open during the summer?

We offer tours almost every night of the year. Whenever you’re in Savannah, we’d love to take you on a tour.

Can we do an 8:30 (or any other off-time) tour?

Unfortunately not. Our times are set.

Can we do an afternoon tour?

We can see if any of our drivers are available to do a 4 o’clock or earlier tour, but we can’t guarantee it.

Can we bring alcoholic beverages with us?

Yes, if you're 21 or older. We do not provide drinks, but you're welcome to bring some, and/or ask your driver to make a bar stop.

Do you require reservations?

Yes. They're first-come, first-served.

Do you require payment when you make your reservation?

Yes.

What’s your cancellation policy?

You have until 24 hours prior to your tour to reschedule (availability permitting), alter the number of people in your party, or cancel and receive a refund. After that 24-hour deadline you can still reschedule, but you'll have to pay for your tour a second time, and you can still remove people from your party or cancel altogether, but you won't get a refund.

What’s your pricing?

It's $25 per person plus tax, due at time of booking. We ask that you bring cash the evening of your tour to tip your driver.

My friend is getting married and wants to include a hearse tour as part of her bachelorette party. Are you guys ok with that?

Absolutely! We happily take bachelorette parties on tours. We only book bachelorette parties as private tours, so plan accordingly when you're looking to book your tour. (Bachelor parties are welcome, too. Also only private.)

What’s this about private tours?

A private tour ensures that your group is the only group on the hearse. The cost is $200 plus tax, and we ask that you bring cash the evening of your tour to tip your driver.

How many people can I bring on a tour?

Each hearse seats 8 people, and we have multiple hearses. So if you have more than 8 people, we can take your group, but they’ll be in more than one hearse. Please bear in mind, though, that the city doesn't allow the hearses to follow each other, so you'll get two entirely separate tours. If you've booked a private tour and show up with more than 8 people, the additional people you bring will not have seats on the hearse. If you have a public tour and show up with more people than you reserved for, and didn't call in advance to see if we had room for them, they may not have seats on the hearse.

Can you pick me up at my Airbnb/VRBO?

No. There are limited locations in Savannah's Historic District where we can legally load passengers aboard our hearses. Private residences/rental homes are not included in these locations.

Well, where can you pick me up?

Our pick up locations are:

  • Reynolds Square (corner of Abercorn and E Bryan St) – around the corner from the Old Pink House Restaurant.
  • Oglethorpe Square (corner of Abercorn and E President) – outside the Owens Thomas House Museum
  • Telfair Square (corner of Barnard and W President)


You’ll also want to leave plenty of time to find parking, as parking in the Historic District can be…problematic.


Are my kids welcome?

Absolutely! Keep in mind, though, that we can't secure car seats, so for really young children you'll need to hold them in your lap.

Is my dog welcome?

Your dogs are absolutely welcome on Private Viewings.

Is my dog welcome only on Private Viewings?

Yes.

Do you visit any cemeteries?

All the cemeteries in the area are closed by the time we start our tours for the evening.

So we don’t go out to Bonaventure Cemetery?

We only operate in Savannah’s Historic District.

Do we get to go in any places?

The places you’ll see on our tours are private homes and businesses we don’t own. So plan on being in the hearse for your whole tour. 

So where do we go during the tour?

You’ll go to many places in the Historic District, but since each driver scripts their own tour we can’t be more specific than that. Each driver has their own route and stories, and many of the drivers vary their tour from week to week or even night to night.

Can I make a reservation and ride with someone who already has a reservation of their own?

Probably.  Seats on the hearses are on a first-come, first-served basis.  If we have the capability of letting you ride on the same hearse as your friend who has their own reservation, we'll be happy to set that up for you.  You need to call us (912-695-1578) to let us know, however.  If you don't call us, we'll have no clue that you want us to put you together, if it's even possible.  If you're trying to ride with someone who already has a reservation, the easiest way to ensure you're all together – if we have the seats available – is to have the person who's already booked a Viewing call us and add however many people are in your group to their reservation.

I want to let my kids go on a tour while I hit a restaurant for dinner and drinks. Would that be ok?

Each group that makes a reservation for one of our Viewings must contain a member who is eighteen years old or older. We cannot and will not take minors unaccompanied by an adult – an adult who is legally responsible for them – on one of our vehicles.
