Overview

Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston! Based upon similar beer tours in Europe, we have been featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. The Pub Tour is a fun and unique tour, which includes visits to many historic pubs (some with rooftop views of the city), old taverns frequented by pirates, breweries haunted by ghosts, and a large dose of Charleston's history. Our exclusive Brewery Tours highlight Charleston's local craft beer scene and are a great way to sample a variety of local brews while hearing the fascinating story behind Charleston beer, with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of several local breweries. The Original Pub & Brewery Tours are definitely the most exciting way to experience the city and everything LOCAL! We often sell out quickly so we recommend making reservations in advance. We accommodate groups of all sizes and will customize any group/event tours to your specific needs. Cheers!

Tour was great! Wasn’t exactly what I expected although that may have been because I thought I booked the bus brewery tour vs the walking one- still were able to visit about 4 different bars- all very neat, most with a good selection of local...More

Tour guide did not have one thing planned we basically paid him 200.00 plus dollars to walk with us and then bought him drinks where WE decided to go.

No one showed for our tour. We called the # and no answer or reply. The restaurant manager also tried to call with no response. We were still charged and had to place a dispute with our credit card company to get a refund.
