Based upon similar pub tours in Europe, it has been featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. The Pub Tour is a fun and unique tour, which includes visits to many historic pubs (some with rooftop views of the city), old taverns frequented by pirates, breweries haunted by ghosts, a dose of history, and a chance to sample some of the area’s tasty micro-brews on tap. The Pub Tour is definitely the most exciting way to see the city of Charleston (and most popular), and it often sells out quickly. Buy tickets now so you don’t miss out on such a cool tour! « less

We really enjoyed our tour! It was 2 couples with our 2 sons (ages 21 & 23). There was so much detail with good drinks and good food, we recommend this to EVERYONE who like to try new beers!

My husband and I ended up with a private tour and it was perfect! We heard all about Charleston in colonial/revolutionary/prohibition/modern times. We learned about the burgeoning craft beer business in the area. We also heard a few ghost stories - can not be helped in Charleston! Lots of tasty snacks along the way to help soak up the beverages... More

This was an excellent experience on our first day in Charleston. Went to five pubs and all had local brews available to purchase and appetizers that were included in the tour with a little bit or Charleston history mixed in. The tour guide was very knowledgable as he is a native to Charleston.

I've lived in Charleston for over 10 years and was entertaining friends in town for the weekend. This was a great way to mix in some history with the vibrant night scene of this great city. Guides were knowledgable and friendly, and very accomodating. I'd recommend this to visitors and locals alike...

My husband and I took this pub tour on July 5, 2014. I had taken the tour once before and knew my husband would love it. Our guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable about Charleston, its history, and speaking "Chawlston-ese"! He took us to several cool bars and provided a delicious snack at each stop! We had a blast and will... More
