2002 American Institute of Parasitology gave a one-time gift to the city they thought most & # 39; all over America. Savannah, Georgia was awarded this trusted title, which it is an honor to consider Announcer south of town got excited about some stiff competition.
New Orleans, Charleston, St. Louis Augustine, Salem, and Gettysburg are all cities that remember spectral visions and a great opportunity to witness something out of the ordinary. However, it is the Savannah that carries the crown and stems from the multi-million dollar tourism industry. Ghost tours were the focus of rigorous historical tours, and they were placed entirely on the shoulders of the strange and macabre aura of the savannah. As such, it also created a wide gap in the types, quality, and legality of the tours offered.
This lucrative, two-edged sword created endless variety of tours to select and make from wood figures from people who were pretending to have "real history". Like any industry where big money is raised, they attract $ 200 for a business license and free web site, but have no real connection to the Savannah, no real background in tours or classic stories, no real experience of paranormal or historical research :
Finally, which is likely to increase by the time this article is published, they have had the desire to prepare 108 travel companies. “Tell You Stories That No Other Tour Will Tell You” and some even guarantee a paranormal encounter. usually about $ 20-30. It goes without saying that changing your reality for 90 minutes instead of 20 minutes would be a lot … if it were right.
When a person embarks on a ghost tour of the savannah, most people have gained a lot until they become successful. Then the fog begins. Competitors go to Competitors' web site .org, copy / paste verbiage from tour descriptions of other companies, and in one case I am aware that one company even registered the business name of another company in the Supreme Court as their own. Having a company makes it a little easier, but if you have a ghost tour in Savannah then just know that it is really competition and things like that are with the area. Many tour operators will eventually have to make threats, or actually file a lawsuit, withstand senseless hackers waiting to imitate new tourism concepts, and of course there will be false Trip Advisor reviews accusing the company of hating America. And cots. This is the price you pay for the privilege of doing business in Savannah. For those of you who are not at all interested in this cunning, cut-throat tactic who just wants a fun, quality tour, here are some points to consider when choosing one.
Beware of the concierge . When you arrive in Savannah, you will not have any information to smile & # 39; concierge & # 39; who welcomes you to your hotel, bought and paid for by the mega trolleybus company, and lo and behold, this is the tour they will be offering. This & # 39; porters & # 39; Wear hotel uniforms, but make no mistake. they have quotas to fill out on behalf of their company before they even consider offering it to anyone.
To avoid this trap, call a reminder of how you know about the tour. It was from the hotel concierge. If so, find out if they really work for the hotel and ask specific questions about how the tour will meet your needs. If the offer is valid, the concierge should be able to provide a line item explanation of why they offer a particular tour.
Also consider how long the company you want to travel with is in business. If you found them on the first page of Savannah Ghost Tours web search, they probably have some time and credibility in that area. However, they can be just as good at building web manipulation, questionable SEO tactics and low value links. So make sure you study the history of the company.
Learn what others are saying about a travel company. Locals and review sites such as Trip Advisor and Yelp are great, but please note, people who make friends, usually have friends and relatives to write reviews, and that a smiling tavern owner can offer a special tour, as they know it brings in guests during their establishment. tour: If a company has 5-30 reviews and they are all great, be suspicious. If on the other hand, they have over 300 positive reviews, you are probably safe to trust what you have read. Gimmicks, as I say, has poor quality travel companies that simply cash in on the business industry. Unfortunately, it is the guest who ends up paying the price. The lesson here is: Use multiple sources for suggestions.
Finally, and in my opinion, most importantly, The owner of the company runs a tour. At a mega corporation like a trolleybus corporation in Savannah, you don't expect a CEO to travel, but by taking a short walk (the best way to see Savannah and support small business) the owner must be present and visible. It shows a real background and not just anyone who has business license. So find out if the owner is taking a tour. Do they have media to defend their claims? "20 plus years as a paranormal researcher." ? Is there any evidence to support their marking line by quoting a historian & # 39;?
I'm & # 39; I had to & # 39; turn around & # 39; guest after guest (some stay extra night for quality tours) as I & # 39; One of the traps of m. I can say with certainty that not to notice this advice would usually mean going on a tour with an art student who needed a summer job and restoring the information he had obtained from the tape recorder they were bringing on their legal tour He was doing his homework.
Savannah is a wonderful city to visit. It is probably the best city in the world if it is weird for all the weird things. So if you travel smart and follow these simple guidelines, you will increase your chances of having a great time in America & # 39; the most hidden city & # 39; and ends on a journey that meets your needs and offers an exciting experience. Happy Tour!
