Frank, our tour guide, was very enthusiastic. However there just weren't a lot of interesting stories along the tour. We expected more in this regard, especially for a city with such a rich history. Also, tour ends in a different place than it starts. This wasn't a problem for us but some people are uncomfortable with this if they don't... More

Our tour guide was Frank. He was fun, informative, and we had an absolute blast!!! Learned some great history, and ghost stories, while having lots of fun. Two thumbs up from our teenager - what better review can there be?!!! Highly recommend!!! We will go again!!!

I admit up front, I'm not a ghost tour kind of person. My friend, however, is and we were glad to join her on this little tour. We met up with our group at the Waterfront Park fountain at the end of Vendue Range. Frank was our guide and he was very fun and energetic in his telling of stories.... More

I attended one of the ghost tours to the jail house. At first I was nervous because I wasn't sure what I would experience. Once the tour started it was up hill from there. I traveled with a group of about 13 people from my job. And to be honest, I did experience some paranormal activities. My cell phone began... More

My friend, Lynn, and I travel, and we like ghost tours. Frank was our gude in Charleston, and we found his engaging manner and storytelling quite fun. Who knew all these things were occurring in the background. as a Unitarian Universalist myself, I particularly liked the graveyard portion of the tour. We have never seen a ghost, but we loved...

We chose the 7:30 tour. Ended up with a private tour, just two of us. Frank was our guide, he was wonderful. Full of interesting facts, with a little drama thrown in. This was not your typical spooky tour filled with scare tactics. The Unitarian Church Cemetery was fascinating. It was great, thanks Frank! ** Bundle up if it's winter.... More

Good history, but our guide was not very dramatic and it wasn't like a ghost hunter type of adventure.

We picked this tour among the others for its positive reviews and inclusion of the Unitarian Church Cemetery and were not disappointed. The tour began at the Waterfront Park fountain, our 7:30 group of 4 smaller than other groups encountered, which were much larger, giving us the advantage of complete mutual attention between guide and audience. Guide Cody gave local... More

We chose the late 9:30 tour, which started from the Waterfront Park. Ended up having a private tour, no one else joined us. Frank was our tour guide and he was fantastic! My 10 year old niece came home with great ghost stories. The Ghost of Charleston has exclusive privileges to the Unitarian Church Cemetery. We entered into the locked... More

Maybe it was the tour guide, Frank, but the tour was exciting from the beginning to the end. The ghost stories are nice, but you learn a lot of history in the process - and you will not be bored, either. Made me really appreciate Charleston.
