I hate to leave bad reviews and I always try to enjoy whatever we do in a new city...but this tour was just disappointing. We went on the Saturday night, 10PM tour (which had a lot of potential.) I didn't feel the stories were "scary" at all, or were a little all over the place and hard to follow! There... More

Thank you for your feedback - I'd like to address some of the points you made. First, I have met with all of our guides to ensure they provide the pictoral proof as advertised in our brochure - this was an oversight on our part, and I appreciate you letting us know so we can correct the situation. Secondly, I'd... More

We live in Charleston and had some relatives in town who were very excited about taking a ghost tour. We chose this one because of all the great recommendations from friends and colleagues. We had a blast! Our guide was very informative, was able to answer all our questions and definitely gave us the shivers at some points. We would... More

We went on a ghost tour with Roy on a Monday night. It meets at Griffon Pub and their food is great so it's worth considering having a bite to eat there before you venture out on the tour. We ended up being the only ones on it which was awesome. Roy is a great guide and told us some... More

This tour could of been rated ok or average if the bugs were not so terrible!!!! The whole group of 20 to 25 people were swatting mosquitos for over an hour, including the tour guide. My son got over 25 bug bites, definately takes the enjoyment out of it when the bugs won't leave anyone alone. The tour itself was... More

I'm sorry to hear about the bug bites on your son. Unfortunately mosquitoes are an environmental reality that we deal with in Charleston all summer. I will take this feedback to make sure future guests are encouraged to bring bug repellant, especially in the warm humid months. I hope you and your family enjoyed your visit to Charleston. Thank you... More

I am a local here in Charleston and already have a good base knowledge of Charleston's history. We decided to take a tour as a fun family outing- I have a young son who can be hard to keep entertained. Our tour guide, Jon, was EXCELLENT and kept all of our attention throughout the tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and... More

We took this tour mainly because of the discount we received from another attraction. Meets at the Griffon, an English-style pub. Our tour guide, George, was really into story-telling and obviously enjoyed his job. Was very funny when he got done telling a story, he immediately picked up his electric lantern where he had set it on the ground and... More

This ghost tour was great! Our guide was friendly and easy to talk to. He took us to several locations where he explained the history of the building and then the ghost story associated with it. It wasn't overly ridiculous, but he didn't shove the paranormal down our throats. A fun way to walk around Charleston.

This is the second time I have taken the "Ghost Tour" with this company, and while the first tour guide I had, John (who is no longer with the company), was intriguingly "in character" and entertaining, our guide tonight, Roy, was informative and a good story teller, but not as "into" the spooky opportunities that one might expect in a...

I went on this tour in August 2007 with relatives who were in town for a visit - they wanted to do a ghost tour, but they didn't want something that was too hokey. We picked Charleston's Best Tours based on their location, price, and quality of their tour guides. Roy, who is a career tour guide in Charleston, was... More
