What you'll do

On the Savannah Folklore Tour with Mr Bones, I’ll tell you a stretch of stories as we walk from Liberty Street to Factors Walk, back and forth, across and up Bull Street. We’ll visit 9 squares with plenty of opportunity for detours and drink stops. I’ll show you beautiful churches, historic monuments, old bars and hotels, and I’ll tell you about the history of Savannah as it unfolds before us on our stroll.
We’ll make a few drink stops along the way, but I wouldn’t call this a pub crawl: it’s more a collection of short vignettes on a guided peek behind the mossy curtain that obscures Savannah’s darkest secrets.
Lines between fact and fiction will be blurred as we tackle some challenging and grotesque ghost stories and legends, coming face to face with one of life’s burning questions: what happens when we die ?
Other things to note
The Ole Bones Colonial Park Cemetery Tour is an experience focused on fact and historic accuracy, and is suitable for all ages.
The Savannah Folklore Tour is a fictional tour loosely based on known history, and is only for adults age 18 and older. I’ll allow some mature teenagers but no children.

I’m Mr. Bones! I’ve been hosting cemetery tours in Savannah for the past year — I was born and raised here, in what some call “the most haunted city in America.” I have a Bachelors in Public Relations, and have published a book of gothic horror, nine music albums, and have had a whole mess of different jobs in this area (including work as a librarian and in radio broadcast). People like me for my Southern charm, sharp style, and spooky stories. I live just south of historic downtown with my wife and son.

A great intimate, personal tour of the city. The host was very knowledgeable about Savannah. The two hour tour flew by, we really enjoyed ourselves!

Keith was very knowledgeable about the area and it’s history. We enjoyed his story telling and how it all came back around in the end. We had a smaller group which made it so much more personable and enjoyable. Keith had a specific story to tell and I’m glad he shared it with us.

This experience didn't blow me away. Not sure what I expected. Keith was a nice guy but I didn't feel like I experienced or learned any additional bits of information that wasn't already available. This isn't meant to be a negative review ; more of a reflectionof my personality...just hoped for something 'deeper, intriguing & personal' than a tourist tour.

Unique experience and very glad we were able to partake in the tour. Keith is very knowledgeable about Savannah history and has a keen awareness of how the past intersects with the present. Would have loved to have learned more from his perspective. Thank you, Mr. Bones, for the tour.
