I visited Charleston over the 4th of July and went on a haunted graveyard tour through Bulldog Tours based on the recommendation of a friend. It was such a fun way to see the city! Our guide, Janice, seemed to know everything there is to know about Charleston. She had lots of fun and creepy stories and facts to share.... More

Sean was our guide for the 10pm Haunted Jail Tour. Very informative. Lots of stories, definitely a creepy tour. Unfortunately, we didn't have any supernatural experiences on the tour, which isn't such a bad thing, since I might've peed myself...or worse. We had a group of about 12-14 people, and after visiting the first room, a woman in our group... More

A creepy place to begin with! The tour guide was very knowledgable and passionate about his job. Guide did a great job of keeping everyones attention and entertained while giving historical information about the jail. I would recommend that this tour be taken in the winter as there is no air conditioning or ventilation in this place. WOW was it... More

Our tour guide, Paulette, tells a great story of history about Charleston and it's ghosts and graveyards. Can't wait for my next visit. Will be requesting Paulette again.

We have been on several ghost tours in other cities, so were comparing this mentally to those. This was ok, nothing memorable. Would have enjoyed stopping at more sites and/or hearing more stories. The stories we heard were a little too long with a little too much commentary after each story along the lines of general "who knows?" type of... More

I'm sorry you didn't have a good time on the tour. Sounds like you found it to be a bit boring and I'm sorry about that. Maybe you didn't like your tour guide? We would have been happy to have refunded you. Did you call us after the tour? Please let us know if there is anything we can do... More

Not as creepy as i expected it to be. History was good, but I am guessing the Jail has no lights cause thats the only creepy element of the tour. Other than that it wasnt all that great. Guide was good, knew his stuff and gave us good info.

Members of my family took the jail tour this evening, and really enjoyed it. Our guide, Paulette was extremely informative regarding the jail's history as well as some of its more colorful inmates. I must admit, I was a little creeped out when I was in there. We were all relieved when we stepped back outside and the tour concluded.... More

Our tour guide was Barry and he was a delight! Very knowledgeable, funny and patient with us taking photos of everything. The tour was great. We walked past Philadelphia alley, St. Phillip's, the Circular Church Graveyard, and ended on the 4 Laws Corner. Great stories and worth the money! It is a walking tour and lasts about 1.5 hours, so... More

Paulette was our tour guide and she did a wonderful job. She made it fun and exciting and she definitely knows what she is doing. I will definitely ask for her the next time I want a tour

My husband and I took the jail tour. It was ok, but we expected to see more of the jail itself. The guide was good but just sounded very rehearsed.

Thank you for the feedback. I'm sorry if you felt like the guide was rehearsed. We do not want the tour to come across that way. We do tour most of the rooms. Was there a particular place in the building you wanted to see, but didn't? There are some rooms used as offices by the American College of Building... More
