“Very interesting tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

What a GREAT evening! John was an awesome tour guide, and really did a fantastic job with telling the various ghostly events of the past. I enjoyed every minute of the tour and learned things, that as a Charleston Native, I never even knew. I have been a Docent in some of the historic homes downtown, and had not heard any of the stories that he shared. He also shared pictures throughout the tour, and a personal experience with an actual ghost being captured on film. It was the fastest 75 minutes ever b/c we were thoroughly entertained from beginning to end! Great job!!! My mom and I enjoyed being a tourist in our own town!

“Great Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed John's tour! He wasn't cheesy & dramatic like ghost tours we've done in other cities. The tour was the perfect length and we heard a lot of interesting ghost stories. John is a Charleston native & also gave us tips on good restaurants & extra bits of Charleston history!

“Spooky but Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Very knowledgeable tour guide, very flowing tour. We were amazed and even took pictures in the cemetery which we swear are spirits.

Definitely worth the small price.

“Great tour and history lesson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

My 13 year old daughter and I went on the late Saturday night tour and had a wonderful experience. The cost is reasonable, and the guide was a local so he was able to tell us stories from having lived in Charleston first hand. So, we didn't get just legends, folklores and rumors, it was based on his knowledge of the city, the people and events. He was a great story teller and very entertaining. Although we didn't see any actual ghosts, we are still looking through our pictures and hope to find one. Even if we don't, the pictures of the streets, cemetaries, churches, restaurants and hotels are going to give us lots of good memories.

“Spooky fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We really enjoyed our Ghostwalk with John. He infused so much history with the ghost tales...we learned a bunch! In addition, he gave us some fabulous restaurant recommendations...we'll be dieting for weeks! Fun, whimsical evening activity.
