We took the 7:30 tour with Mr. Neil - he's a professional actor, and it showed. His stories were captivating and enthralling. It was clear that we were on the best ghost tour in Charleston. He ended the tour with a monologue of "Annabelle Lee" by Edgar Allen Poe in the Unitarian Graveyard, which was truly captivating. There was a... More

We booked this tour with ease the night before and checked in at the address without problems. Our guide, Randy, did a great job telling us about ghost stories as well as the historical significance tied to the destinations we went. The tour did end in a graveyard, so if that's a "no go" for someone, be prepared; otherwise, an... More

The locations were great, we especially enjoyed the cemetery at the end. It's nice to hear stories of individuals who lived in Charleston.

We enjoyed our tour and the stories that our guide shared. You must wear your walking shoes and be prepared to walk at a pretty fast pace. There were times when the guide would be telling information and it was difficult to hear due to the street traffic or the volume of his voice. At the conclusion of the tour,... More

We took our family of 15 on the walking tour called Lost Stories of Black Charleston. Our group ranged from 11 to 80. It was enjoyable for everyone and very educational. The guide is an adjunct history professor. He has written multiple books and is an absolute expert on the area. Damien is also an actor and can hold the... More

This was a great walking tour with a knowledgeable and entertaining guide in Damon Fordham. Learned many things that are not available on other tours.

I've done ghost tours in many different cities, but this was one of the best. Very fun and informative! Our tour guide, Mr. Neil was fantastic! He had so many stories...he filled the 80 minutes with ease. Well worth the cost, especially in comparison to similar conpetition. Was a highlight of our trip...thank you!

Tour guide was a bit arrogant. Tour was rushed. No time for photos. If you cannot, or don't, walk briskly you'll be left behind. Definitely not scary. Would rather have seen during the day, at a leisurely pace, with info.

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Charleston. Walking around at night in the streets alleys and cemetery's was awesome ! The company itself and tour guide exceptional! We had a car incident and had to be towed the afternoon of our tour and had to change nights. Not only did they change the dates for us but... More
