We have always talked about taking the walking ghost tour while in Charleston but could never quite convince ourselves that it would be of much interest. We were so wrong. Mike gave us more history of the city and documented events that occurred centuries ago in such an interesting way that some of that information will be with us forever.... More

This is a great tour for those interested in the dark history of Charleston! It's important to note that this is a historical tour with local legend sprinkled in, rather than a ghost hunting tour. I really enjoyed this tour: it was just the right balance of spooky and informative. Roy, the tour guide, made us feel like we were... More

we had a great time on the ghost tour in Charleston. We learn lots of good history about the city and the people in it. Our guide mike was very knowledgeable and professional and we really enjoyed ourselves on the tour.

We moved to the Charleston area a year ago and had explored the area a lot on our own and thought we knew a bit of the area history already, but we decided to go on a ghost tour just to see what it was like. We were glad we did! Our tour guide Roy walked us around areas we... More

I am a local in this town, I grew up in the Charleston area, but I didn't really pay too much attention to the history of this town, up until recently. I decided to take the Ghost tour with my daughter on Friday night for some family fun. Our guide,Roy was really informative, & I learned stuff I didn't even... More

Went on this ghost tour with two friends. There were only 3 of us in the group- we went on a Monday night so there weren't a lot of people around. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Charleston. The biggest drawback, as previous reviewers have mentioned, is that we didn't actually go to a lot of places. Most of... More

Of all the tours I took on a recent trip -- five in total -- this one was my favorite. We did a ghost tour with Jon and he was so great with his approach to telling stories, it didn't feel hokey at all. It was just me and my girlfriend on the tour because we visited in the low... More

The guide was wonderful and the tour interesting and historical. However, I haven't experience such poor customer service in a very long time. The person answering phones was rude, aggressive and I felt like I was talking to a teenager - completely unprofessional and not acceptable. It is unfortunate because the guide and tour were so great!

Thank you for your input- i would like address the nature of the phone call you referenced: Your group of 4 was asked to arrive at 9:45pm to check in for the 10:00pm tour (along with 10+ other participants). You called at 9:58p to say you were "on the way" but weren't able to disclose your exact location--we explained that... More

A reluctant activity for half of our party, the skeptic. Tour was very good, though. Humorous, and a lot of history as well as the ghost lore. A nice walk through some of the side streets and alleys in Charleston. If you want to do a ghost tour this is a good one, especially if someone in your group is... More
