Nick limits the tours to 10 people so it's not too crowded to do some good investigating of haunted locations with paranormal tools that he lets the customers use. He gives background information at each location without giving away too much before the hunt begins and then follows up and finishes the story to see if any of the evidence matches up with the known events at the sites. It's a very unique and welcome addition to ghost tours in Charleston. I would highly recommend this tour for novice to experienced paranormal investigators. Nick worked with us to re-schedule after he had a medical emergency and toughed it out on the re-scheduled date. He provides you with all the evidence and notes from the night after the investigation is over.

This review is amazing. I couldn't have described the interactive ghost hunting experience any better than this. Thank you for being so flexible on your tour time, Charleston weather can be very unpredictable.

Nick was very entertaining, knowledgeable about the local history and provided all the tools to have a strong investigation in several of the off the beaten path locations. He has done the research on the history and it shows in his passion and eduction of those on the tour. If you want to have the paranormal tools to learn and work with, Nick’s tour is the one you want to choose.

Stories in the Cemetery is not your normal/average ghost tour! Nick went to great lengths before, during, and after the tour to ensure a unique experience. I am amazed at how knowledgeable he is, and how much work he puts into planning these experiences. Our tour included the use of high tech equipment to capture data as part of a ghost investigation. Nick took time to ensure all of us knew exactly how to use our equipment. He provided plenty of factual background at each stop along the way, supplemented by his findings and research. It was refreshing and much appreciated to take a unique tour like this that utilized factual information about each stop along the tour, and did not rely on retelling some old ghost tales. Oh and the best part - the next day, Nick reviews and sends you all of the data collected by every person on your tour - video, audio, etc - and provides historical reference links to further substantiate the findings! This tour was the highlight of our trip to Charleston, and we most certainly will experience this tour again on our next trip back to this area.

Casey, thanks for leaving your review on this platform as well as on Google. That is VERY much appreciated and keeps more ghost hunters coming our way. I'm floored and humbled by your takeaways from your experience. This lengthy review says it all, as does this pictures you posted from the thermal imaging camera that found a very unique anomaly in temperature drops. Thanks again for sharing your opinion, your passion written here shows your appreciation for the experience that we designed for all those curious about this odd fieldwork that we are growing to understand more about. Thank you for this review, truly and honestly, thank you.

Nick was an amazing guide. Although technically we are tourists in Charleston, we tend to stay away from tourist traps. We hate feeling like we are being herded like cattle, insincere and canned lines, etc. This tour was the opposite of all of that. Nick is extremely down to earth, knowledgeable, engaging, warm, and genuinely interested in your experience. The tour itself was an adventure, you never know what may happen! He even goes through his equipment and emails you links of what he picked up along the way that may have been missed. This isn’t just a 1 1/2 hour tourism tour, he puts so much into making sure you have all the info and decide from there. We loved it, and our 9 year old was on CLOUD 9 and will be for weeks. Thank you so much Nick and London!

Apologies for the delayed response to this fantastic review, but I wanted to make sure your 9 year old was still on cloud 9 from learning true paranormal tactics? And you are correct, this is not your touristy trap type experience and I'm so glad the extra efforts we put into your data collection is appreciated. Looking forward to having you on a ghost hunt in the future.

Nick did a great job with the stories that the other ghost tours don’t tell. Working with the ghost equipment was very cool and has been something I wanted to do for a long time. Really enjoyed the tour and would do it again. Highly recommended for ghost seekers!

A great experience! Nick was an awesome guide and teacher giving us insight on some of Charleston’s most haunted locations while using real ghost hunting equipment! Not only was he was super down-to-earth and professional and keeps his tour group sizes under 10 people. Which unlike other ghost tours that are crammed with lots of people makes for a more personal experience! Nick even goes above and beyond by recording entire sessions and then reviewing the footage/recordings for any further evidence. He then sends you what he found from your session. Definitely unlike anything I’ve ever experienced! I’m so happy I chose this interactive ghost hunting experience it was well worth it! If you’re looking for a ghost tour I recommend Nick 100%!!

So glad you found the returned data with evidence of the paranormal exciting. The goal for Stories in the Cemetery is to create an experience unlike any other "ghost tour" in the country. What's so great is that each ghost hunt is different! I'm also glad that you appreciated the smaller group of 10. Making the ghost hunts a more personal experience is a top priority. Thank you for this review, it literally made my day...

I was never really familiar with ghost tours or paranormal investigating before this. My girlfriend has been on multiple ghost tours and is more familiar with it than myself. Since she’s had experience with going on ghost tours and my curiosity screaming to go on one, she booked this tour/investigation for me to experience what ghost hunting is really about. With that being said, this was a truly awesome experience. Unlike the tours that seemed more corporate or disconnected, Stories in the Cemetery doesn’t just tell stories and walk you around. You’re investigating the story while working with your group, learning about how the tools work, what you're looking for, and learning the art. Not only are you learning about how the tools work and what to look for, but it is also absolutely hands-on. I guarantee you will have a device doing an investigation yourself with some assistance, of course. Nick, the owner, really made it a learning experience for me, where I finished the tour with such a more significant understanding after almost knowing absolutely nothing about ghost hunting. I will definitely book another tour in the future. 10/10 recommend Thanks, Nick!

Howard, this lengthy review is very much appreciated. Teaching folks what ghost Hunting really is instead of what is portrayed on television is exhilarating and quite honestly, it can be hard to tell when people are disappointed by the realism of this craft. Ghost Hunting doesn't have to be a scary event. It's about fact finding and putting clues together. So glad you enjoyed this and that your experience exceeded your expectations of just another tourist trap. Glad to have met you... thanks again for this rave review!

Nick is intelligent, passionate and educated on paranormal investigations and sightings. This is not your standard ghost tour with scary stories. Actually the intent is not to scare at all. It’s to get solid readings or evidence of activity in known places around Charleston. And Nick is the first one challenging readings. You see something or hear something- he’s quick to show you that “no, that’s a branch moving or a song coming thru the receiver”. His first effort is to debunk - but not everything can be debunked. There are connections that cannot be explained. We heard them. And if you don’t believe check out his website. All the evidence. It’s all up there for scrutiny and amazement. He’s the real deal and a genuinely nice guy to boot. This ‘tour’ was worth every penny. I want to do it again on a new moon!

What fun! I've never done this before and Nick made it interesting and fun. My interest in paranormal activity was heightened because of this experience. My respect for the process (the super interesting tools) left me in awe! I gained new insight for the dead (they don't hang in graveyards necessarily!). I learned a ton about the area and overall had an experience that I will recommend to my friend visiting. I'll be back!

Thank you so much for leaving your very awe-stricken review. It means the world to us. As much you appreciated being part of the process of a paranormal investigation, we appreciate you in return. And no, spirits aren't always just found in graveyards and cemeteries....

Absolutely fantastic time. Nick knows his stuff; both the history and paranormal. He’s incredibly friendly and keeps the entire investigation entertaining, educational and interesting. We went to varied locations at a relaxed pace and were fully engaged the whole time. You won’t get any hoaxes, jumpscares, or any cheesy tourist traps. It’s the real deal and I’d recommended this to paranormal enthusiasts and non-believers alike. Even if you’re a non believer, you’ll still have a great time and learn a ton about each location and the history behind them. Nick won’t try to pressure or convert you. You’ll have a blast utilizing his investigation tools to record data (thermal imaging, spirit boxes, evp etc) and getting to review the footage whenever you want later on his extensive website. You will get to download all the data , video and evp collected by the group to keep for yourself. We will 100% be returning for another investigation with him the next time we are down here.
