More impressive, is this is the ghost tour that saw Blue Orb named, in separate articles by Conde Nast Traveler and Trip Advisor as one of the Top 10 Ghost Tours in the World in 2014.
The 18 and older only Uncensored Zombie Tour is truly a premium adult Savannah pleasure.The most common question people ask about this tour is: "Why is it called the zombie tour? Is it about zombies?" Classic Western representation of zombies was made popular in 1929 by a book called The Magic Island by William Seabrook. However, the concept of the undead walking among us both spiritually and physically is originally a Voodoo concept and Blue Orb was zombie, before zombie was cool because of our strong commitment to researching the Conjuring communities in the low country. Savannah, Georgia is home to many large communities comprised of hoodoo and voodoo practitioners, also known as Conjurers. This tour focuses on the Conjurers view of ghosts, spirits and the undead as well as the Colonial viewpoints. So, when Blue Orb says zombie, we are referring to the spiritually undead-ghosts. We just use the Conjurers word for it.
This tour was ranked as the #1 Things to do in Savannah for Singles/Nightlife on multiple local websites. The cities open container law allows guests taking ghost tours in Savannah to “get one to go” and Blue Orb's starting location is conveniently located next to several stylish pubs. Restroom access is also available before and after the tour at Gallery Espresso, McDonough’s Pub or Parker’s Market.
The tours success is attributed to guests knowing they will always tour with other adults only, hear the material uncensored and have access to a late night option with alcohol available, minus the bar scene.
