We are in our last night in Charleston. We have an early check out and the start of a long drive home. We booked late afternoon for a 8pm tour at one of those curb side stands at a discount rate. We thought we are good to go! They called us 90 minutes later to bump us to the 10pm... More

The tour was really interesting and I thought Austin did a great job! He even stayed with my group for 15-20 minutes afterwards to answer any additional questions and just talk. I would highly recommend going on one of these tours if you're interested in history and/or ghosts. It was definitely one of the more memorable experiences from my time... More

I have taken several ghost tours over the years when visiting Charleston. They all have somewhat of a different spin on where they take you on the tour and what stories they tell. Our first tour was scheduled with Austin. The group that was scheduled for this tour had several small children in it. This made the tour a little... More

My first encounter with Charleston Ghost Tours was a bit challenging due to a varied age group, but Austin did a great job making the experience worthwhile for everyone. The manager called me the next day during my weekend visit to Charleston, and offered another adventure. It was again a worthwhile time. Roy has a gift of presentation and a... More

We enjoyed our Ghost Tour through Charleston on Tuesday. We have been to Charleston before and always wanted to go on one. I was hoping for a little history mixed with ghost stories and I feel we got that. We brought our kids and the guide did a good job of not making it too scary for them. We hope... More

Booked this tour with high hopes of hearing some spooky ghost stories from Charleston's rich history. Instead our guide smelled very strongly of alcohol and tried to be more of a comedian (not funny) than a story teller. His phone was dead the whole time and he kept asking people in the group to borrow theirs. I feel bad leaving... More

Thank you for the feedback regarding your tour with our company. I spoke with your guide, and he did admit to accepting one drink from a group of guests on the tour immediately preceding yours as a form of gratuity. This is not standard practice, and the guide has been reminded to politely refuse any tokens of appreciation in the... More

I have been on many city ghost tours throughout the south including this one several years ago. I was so excited to go with my husband on this tour since he had never been on one. Unfortunately, we ended up with a terrible guiide- none of the great guides they advertised in their brochure... It turned into a very long... More

As one of the oldest walking tour companies in Charleston, our guides average 15+ years of experience each, and the reason we include the tour guide bios on the brochure is to demonstrate the breadth and depth of knowledge our company offers. We have received lots of feedback on our guides, but this is the first time one was described... More

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
