I would highly recommend the Ghost and Graveyard tour and this touring company! Our guide, Jeff, was great! He was knowledgeable and encouraged us to ask questions. He was a great guide and was able to get keep everyone's attention. i would definitely take another tour with this company again. My husband and I took the Ghost and Graveyard tour... More

My wife & I did 2 tours with this company - the graveyard/dungeon & old city jail. As history buffs we soaked it all in - both tour guides were very good and told lots of history and ghost stores. Although we didnt end up having an supernatural encounters we still enjoyed ourselves very much - got some interesting pictures!

Of all the evening tours, this was the only one for which tickets were available by the time we started looking in mid-afternoon. After taking the trolley, we walked a very long way (the suggested 10 minute walk took us more than 1/2 hour) and gathered outside the old jail for the first tour of the evening. A polite young...

Our guide Barry was fantastic! He was a great story teller and kept us all engaged. This is a great way to learn about Charleston whether you are a local or a visitor. Highly recommended and worth the money!!

Had a great tourguide she told very interesting stories about brothels, prohibition & gangsters. She let us wander around a graveyard which was very cool. I think next time Id opt for a scarier tour, such as the ghost tour. Was a good value for $20 per person. Easy to buy online & reserve a spot.

I went on the Darkside tour of Charleston with the same group that went a few reviews down. I assume it was the same tour, I could be wrong, but it was on the same date. I wasn't going to write a review but then I saw that review and felt compelled to. The tour is advertised as R rated... More

We took the Ghost and Graveyard Tour with a guide named either Barry or Benny (sorry, sir, my memory escapes me). My husband and I like taking the ghost tours whenever we travel, because we are very interested in history and we get to hear the history that isn't told on the traditional tours; this gives us a different perspective...

Regarding the Charleston Old Jail Tour: Meeting outside the jail at night was a fun experience. The anticipation of looking at the darkened building and knowing you will soon be going was probably the most frightening part. Our tour guide was excellent. He was very knowledgable and respectful of the history of the building and the horrors that occurred within.... More

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, the history of the jail is very interesting. I agree that going for the history is better than thinking that you will be terrified on the tour. I'm very glad you enjoyed the tour, but I'm sorry that you weren't satisfied with how long it was and that you didn't think there was much... More

We did the Charleston Stroll and the Darkside of Charleston Tours with Bulldog and overall enjoyed both tours. The tour guides were great and very knowledgeable, although the tour guide we had for the Darkside tour has a little bit more personality than the Charleston Stroll tour guide. If you want a good walking tour, and a quick comprehensive history... More

We went on a tour dungeons/ghosts. Our tour guide was called david, brilliant story teller, but we feel the tour was a little over priced! We would recommend.

Sorry to hear that you felt your tour was overpriced, but I am glad that you enjoyed it. I will tell you that our tours are competitive with the other attractions in the city. The carriage tours are over $20 and so are the harbor tours. Our tours are right at $20. Thank you for the feedback. More
