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

Our tour guide, Kyle, had lots of energy and brought the town to life with his stories from the past. He showed our group around the local watering holes and engaged in our conversations not only about Charleston, but also about other topics. He fit right in! Quality guides are priceless!

Kyle was a great guide and fun to hang out with in a Friday night! This tour took us to local bars in low country. Kyle did a great job entertaining us and educating us on the city. We had a small group of 6, which added to the fun intimacy of the tour. We stopped at 5 bars and... More

My wife and I have been on three Charleston pub tours in the last year (it's a fun way to introduce our out-of-town family members to the city), and this one was by far our favorite. The tour lasted about an hour longer than expected. Our tour guide was Brian. He suggested great beer we never heard of, told interesting... More

We booked a group tour for our Reunion group with Brian and had a great evening. While we could have navigated different pubs on our own, it was much more entertaining to have a guide and meet other participants. Brian was well versed on the history of Charleston, super friendly and extremely patient with us...a very chatty group! He customized... More

I Would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone visiting Charleston. Daniel was our guide and took us to 5 great pubs. Me and my friend did it the first night in town and this is a great way to know what you want to do the rest of your stay. This tour was a history, ghost and pub crawl... More

An evening well spent in this beautiful city! Staff was very friendly, accommodating, and most of all, knowledgeable. Learned so much about Charleston over craft beers in unique Charleston pubs. Thank you pub tours and thank you Charleston for a memorable weekend.

We did a pub tour with one other couple in our group and it was a good experience. Because the drinks aren't included in the $30 admission it became kind of expensive. I enjoyed the tour throughout downtown and liked the bits of history but would have liked perhaps a little bit more. Overall we liked it but felt that... More

My wife and I came to Charleston for a wedding. We were suprised at how beautiful the city was. A friend of mine had recommended this pub tour to us, believing we would appreciate it. We did. The tour guide took us to several pubs in the historic district of Charleston. These are the pubs that aren't populated by tourists,... More

This past spring, I decided to be a tourist in my own city for a weekend. Dismissing the light rain & dark clouds, I chose to embark on a pub tour with a company that I was somewhat familiar with, as I have seen their guides leading groups of curious tourists about the East Bay & Market St. area. I... More
