We went on the ghost & graveyard tour and went through the dungeon. I love the way Barry speaks, slow rhythm but with special emphasis on important point. He knows his facts & stories. He's awesome!!! -JB

Went on the prison tour had a great experience. We went twice actually, both Sean and Paulette were awesome and had so much knowledge to share. We even captured pictures of orbs in our photos as well as unexplainable objects. Highly recommend this to anyone in the area!

I took the Ghost and Graveyard Tour, guided by Barry. He is a good story teller and had good knowledge of Charleston history and folklore. This was a nice overview of the city on my first night in town. I very much enjoyed it.

Right around the corner from French Quarter Inn. Took both a ghost tour and culinary tour. Both guides were excellent. The tours were lots of fun and different from anything we and ever done. Wished we had time to go on the Pub Crawl tour!

We toured on the Dark side of Charleston tour. Very entertaining and different. The guide was knowledgeable about other types of history and responded well to any questions asked. One star is knocked down without any fault of the tour company: Charleston has strict rules that disallow tour companies from entering residential areas after 6pm, or so we're told. I... More

I was in Charleston the last week of October. This was my first visit and I ended up taking four walking tours. This was the worst. The night before Halloween my husband & I thought it would be fun to take a ghost tour. We signed up for Bulldog's Ghost & Dungeon walking tour. The guide (I think his name... More

We wish you would have come into our office after the tour and told us this in person. We could have rectified the situation by giving you a refund. Larry has not received bad reviews in the past. Are you sure it was Larry? The alleys you went in are haunted and that is why he took you there. Especially... More

It was very close to Halloween when we were there & it sounded like a fun thing to do. When I called the person on the phone was not very informative or even very helpful on giving directions. In looking back, that should have been my sign When we got to the Bulldog Office there were quite a few people... More

It sounds like you liked your tour guide, but had a hard time understanding her. I'm sorry about that. Definitely let the tour guide know if you are having a hard time hearing and maybe they could speak louder or have you stand toward the front of the group. I hate that you weren't able to hear well. Also, I'm... More

Thought this may be more about the brothels\etc history. But the guide just had a few strange stories and seemed to curse just for the sake of it. Not very good. Maybe try the ghost tour? But be aware they cant go into residential areas for the tours after dark now.

I'm so sorry that you didn't enjoy the Dark Side of Charleston tour. The tour does indeed have cursing as it is a rated "R" history tour. I'm sorry if you thought the guide was just cursing for the sake of cursing. We would love to have you on one of our ghost tours. Please let us know if you... More

You have to ask for Cathy, a brash and fun lady who lead us to 7 culinary treasures. All of which we returned to during our stay. Thanks for a great time!
