Our guides are the best in the business, with years of research and storytelling experience. They promise the kind of accuracy, insight and enthusiasm that create a delightful touring experience. Let them lead you to Charleston's hidden alleys and tell you what went on behind its closed doors.The daytime walks last approximately two hours. The ghost walks are shorter (and scarier).We go rain or shine. There are no hills. The pace is easy. Please join us. You'll be glad you did! « less

Mike Brown gave a fantastic tour! His telling of the Charleston "otherworld" was knowledgeable and believable. Would definitely recommend!

Even the skeptics among us thought that Mike Brown did a great job on the ghost tour. His stories were mesmerizing and fun, even if some of us didn't believe a word. Serious but not heavy, not at all silly, he hit just the right tone. We did the later evening tour to avoid young children and to achieve the... More

Among the many ghost tour options we chose this one based on the various reviews and were most definitely not disappointed. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a great command of the audience’s attention. He knew the stories and history inside and out and was able to wrap all the tales together while even including some fun facts... More

Denny Stiles was our tour guide -- what a knowledgeable gentleman! Even though it was only my husband and I signed up for this particular tour, he didn't try to reschedule or refund money -- he gave us the grand tour! Too many sites, too numerous to mention: St. Michael's Church, Dock Theater, Battery, view from shore of Fort Sumter.... More

Took the late night ghost tour with Mike Brown as our guide. The group was large and so we split into two groups which was very appreciated by all. Mike was an excellent guide with a great sense of humor. His stories were great and his pictures really added to our enjoyment. We didn't see any ghosts or unusual things... More

Our tour with Dennis was great. There were only 4 of us and he walked and talked the entire time, despite what was considered a hot day (did not seem so bad to me). I will definitely go back with another tour with the company the next time we are in town.

My wife and I did the ghost tour with Mike as our guide this evening and it was everything we expected and more. I think the negative reviews this tour gets are upset they "didn't see a ghost". The story telling was amazing and the 90 minutes flew by. Would highly recommended.

We met in dark park behind city hall at night...Mike was a great story teller and really pulled you into the history and ghosts of Charleston. We had a Groupon coupon, which was what steered us to this tour, but was so glad it did.
