    Join Kevin as he guides his group through Charleston's haunted history. Step back in time to journey were Pirates and Patriots walked. You will be escorted to 80% of the top haunted locations in Charleston. Kevin will delight you with his intimate knowledge of haunted houses/ haunted hotels. And haunted graveyards. By most experts Charleston is considered one of the most haunted cities in the United States. The question you might have is "why is Charleston haunted"? The answerer is simple "HISTORY". Founded in 1670 by the English. And one of three walled city's in North America. The streets of Charleston have seen founding fathers and pirates walking the very cobble stone streets you will walk. See graveyards dating back to 1681. Go to the oldest brick home 1718. See were Charleston criminals were tried and executed. Charleston is a city were the dead and the living coexist. At night the streets are walked by ghosts and restless souls who are unable to cross the the other side.

My teen daughters and I loved our tour. It truly was the perfect blend of history and spooky stories. Kevin is clearly a passionate and skilled guide and story teller, it was a great way to spend out last night in Charleston. Don’t be fooled by the comparatively low priced ticket - this is a professional tour that gives you more value than you pay for.
*I am pregnant and did wonder why the tour description doesn’t recommend this tour for those who are pregnant. If you’re sensitive to less than positive stories about pregnancy/birth, than that would be a reason to skip it. But I’m not bothered by these things and was still able to enjoy the tour. Use your judgment as to how sensitive you are. The amount of walking was light and quite manageable even for someone having 3rd trimester discomforts.

We went during the daytime hours so we were able to go inside of many of the haunted places that we would not have been open had we gone at night. Kevin was our tour guide and he knew everything about the history of downtown Charleston- not just the ghost stories! We asked if he knew a great place to get pralines and he took us by a great local candy shop at the end of our tour. Full service- thanks, Kevin 😊

Absolutely loved this tour! We did the 9:30 pm walking tour which was perfect because it was dark so it was extra spooky. Our tour guide was amazing! he spoke not only of ghost stories but also told us a lot about the history of Charleston which i loved. highly recommend for families!

This was just barely ok. The tour is not s sry at all and the tour guide seemed to keep telling the same story at each stop “ just the other night I had a lady on my tour say she saw a ghost in this very spot”. It was sad storytelling. We think the guide was high! We had various stops abs he would tell a super basic story, then pull out his cell phone and search his photos for a picture of the “ghost” for what seemed like an eternity! The graveyards were neat, but our tour was not able to go into the graveyards even though there were several other tour groups walking inside. Basically we just walked up and down a few streets, listening to some less then interesting stories, then walked away feeling scammed. We got this tour free with some silly “condo share” presentation, but it was only worth the free price tag. A lady on our tour was super upset because she made reservations from some random cell number, but when she showed up at the bar for the meet up, the guy told her it was 10 bucks more per person and asked her to come back for the later tour (she refused the later time but had to pay the 30buck). Also they only take cash. So scammy. I only gave it two stars because the guide was polite and kind,. He was a nice high man.

You did not go with "Ghosts of the South" 1. We do not meet at a bar 2. We only take reservations online 3. Their is never an up-charge 4. We are not connected with time shares. And after 18 years in business none our our guides are " high". Hopefully future bookers will look at "all" of our reviews. And see how ODD your review is.

Super shady company. Based on reviews, it sounds like as long as the company does not cancel your tour, you’re fine. The company called me 2 hours before the tour to cancel because guide broke his ankle. A week later, I emailed to confirm I would receive a refund, and was assured I already had, but it takes 14 days to post. A month later, no refund and the company stopped responding to my emails. I am currently in a credit card dispute. Ghosts of the South lied to my cc company and said services were rendered. When I called the tour company yesterday, Brian from the tour company said they had issued the refund. I called my cc company and this is not the case. This has become time consuming and every minute I spending dealing with it, I can’t believe that I wasn’t issued a simple refund. It’s become a crazy tunnel of lies on their end and super shady.

We were in touch with your credit card company. And we authorized a refund. It's then up to your credit card company to get the money to you. We have no control over YOUR credit card company. If anything is SHADY it's your credit card company. We have never had a problem with credit card companies not distributing a credit.

The entire tour was just plain boring and very quiet. The tour guide Kevin is surely be voted as the worst tour operator and have zero skill and aptitude to be in this line of business. He claims of having 19+ years of experience but he is plain lazy and have no interest in doing his job. His favorite line is to insist/force the guests to take the photos so he does not have to talk or entertain. The total tour is mostly run with no talks, description or discussions during the walking and it finishes even before 1 hour with most 10 mins of narrating some boring description. Please don't sign for this tour and it is badly planned and horribly executed. It is a total waste of both time and money and directly putting a horrible shame on American showmanship.

After an investigation. We can't find your reservation. Or documentation that you attended this tour you spoke off. You might have made this review in error. Their are 15 ghost tour company's in Charleston. We are sorry you posted this in error. Comparing your review with other reviews. Your review seems VERY out of place. Please contact us and we can figure out what company you actually went with. Thank you. Brian

My husband and I take ghost tours in every city we visit, and this was very disappointing. In a city the age of Charleston, there is so much history, and human history is bound to have secrets. I’m out short - 63 minute - tour, we had about three stops…two of which were the same graveyard just different ends. The tour guide was very theatrical, which is fine if it means they’re passionate about their stories, but this guy sounded simply rehearsed as though he were reading from a script he’s read millions of times. He also got after a few people at the beginning of tour by stating, “Rule #1, no talking when I’m talking.” I completely want a tour guide to be respected by their group, but when we’re with our friends and family (and it’s a Saturday night!), there is bound to be some side discussion about the stories we’re hearing. Don’t waste your money on this tour. It’s unimpressive, the guide is rude, and the whole thing feels very commercial. Find somewhere else to hear about Charleston’s history!

You are totally off base with this review. The tour guide is PASSIONATE about his stories. He has been giving tours for 18 years. If you wanted a boring non passionate story teller, l suggest "YOU" booked the wrong tour. Their are plenty of boring tour guides in the City. And as far as the 1# rule "No talking when the tour guide is talking'. That is called RESPECT. It's common courtesy. So yes. If people who read this don't appreciate PASSION/COMMON COURTESY and RESPECT please choose a different company.

Walk to various parking lots and stand around while the leader tells way too long “ghost stories”. They stress how much they want you to write a good review. Would not recommend this to anyone.

If we ever return to Charleston, this is one activity I would not do again. It was okay, but nothing special, we weren't super impressed. Our guide told great stories but only at the places we stopped, not en route, causing a lot of silence on the tour.
