Crime impacting late night tourism?

Could Savannah’s crime problem be whittling away at the city’s tourism industry? Some tour companies are worried that a souring reputation could start to convince tourists and their money to go somewhere else. Many tours in Savannah, like the Hearse Ghost Tours, often run late at night. And many tours, like the hearse tour, drop people off at their hotels after the tour is completed. But walking tours present a unique challenge. “I do tell them if they’re walking back to their hotels or back to their cars, if it’s a few blocks away, I tell them on certain roads only. On lighted streets where there’s more traffic on that road, avoid certain areas of town of course, because I am afraid for their safety on their way back to the hotels,” said Chris Allen, owner of Haunted Savannah Tours.
