We came across this tour and saw the outstanding reviews so we decided to give it a try. The guide, Mike, is extremely knowledgeable and is a fantastic storyteller. He easily captures the group’s attention with his haunted/creepy stories which are supported by pictures that he shows. Overall, I highly recommend this tour if you’re into ghost tours as he is an excellent tour guide.

What a fun way to spend an evening in beautiful Charleston!! Mike is a wonderful storyteller! He has some creepy and spooky pictures to go along with his tales of the paranormal. The locations on the tour are first gorgeous and then eerie after hearing about all the strange goings on. Mike offered bug repellent and did a great job keeping everyone together and out of walkways for other pedestrians. I would 100 percent do this again when visiting Charleston.

Our tour with Mike Brown was exceptional. Mike met our family of 8 (plus 2 well behaved dogs) in the park behind City Hall. Mike then promptly proceed to enlighten us and the rest of the group with his endless knowledge of Charleston history intermixed with some delightful ghostly tales of facts and maybe some fiction.Mike is a terrific storyteller with a great sense of humor, as well as visual aids to help enhance his stories of ghostly Charleston lore. Mike made an easy 90 minute walk through downtown Charleston on a beautiful evening with family and new friends( everyone loved the dogs) a great way to learn a little bit more history ghastly or not of this great southern city.

This tour was great! Mike is a fantastic story teller and gives you a glimpse into some of Charleston’s more spooky history. You can feel his passion on the tour and it keeps you engaged and eager to learn more.

Would definitely recommend this tour if you’re into ghost stories and learning about some of Charleston’s history in a different way!

Incredibly pleased by the Pleasing Terrors Ghost Tour of Charleston! As a long-time fan of Mike Brown's Pleasing Terrors podcast, I was stoked to have him lead us around the most haunted sites in Charleston, and he did not disappoint! He is a master storyteller, with an entrancing voice, full of passion and intensity. He had the tour group enthralled as he led us around side streets, alleys, and desolate locales, regaling us with some of Charleston's greatest scandals and deepest history. He never stammered, stuttered or missed a beat as he spoke, despite the sometimes busy streets and loud music from cars passing by. He shared awesome ghost pics with us taken inside the buildings we visited, and they were SPOOKY! If you want a true ghost tour, Pleasing Terrors won't disappoint. I heard several other groups as we passed them on the way to our destination, and their presentations sounded super rehearsed and fake, with lots of "likes," "ums", etc. There was not real talent in their presentation, and Mike Brown has that storyteller talent in spades!! Choose this tour, folks!

This ghost tour was very well organized and informative. You can tell Mike is passionate about his ghost tours and wants his group to feel the same. I would recommend this tour to others, however, if you have difficulty walking distances or on uneven surfaces, it may not be for you. This is no fault of the tour, just how the streets of Charleston are made.

Mike's Ghost Tour was the highlight of our trip! My younger sister said it was her favorite part of our week-long trip to Charleston during which time we spent at various museums, art galleries, the ocean and the aquarium. Mike was so knowledgable and explained the history of Charleston in an engaging and interesting way that was spooky but not too scary. The walk seemed much shorter because Mike is such a good story teller. We had been on a horse drawn carriage ride a few days before Mike's tour and it pales in comparison. If we could pick only one tour we would definitely go on another tour with Mike again.

I really really liked this tour. We were staying outside of Charleston in November for a few days and we took this tour with this specific guide because of the reviews. Mike was a great fluid story teller and his history as a Charleston resident created a well rounded tour. He would tell a story and then show evidence that was captured. He showed photos on his ipad and honestly, one of them was so scary i woke up thinking about it several times throughout the night. It was a great way to see parts of the city and to see some sites that we wanted to come back to the next day. I highly recommend it. It was so much fun and spooky and my group and I laughed alot.

Mike Brown was an outstanding tour guide and told each story at each stop in a very captivating way - I can not recommend this tour enough! He used pictures to further illustrate each story and it all felt very genuine. Our entire group was just us 11 close friends and we all really enjoyed it. Definitely check out this tour while in Charleston!
