About The Original Pub Tour of Charleston
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!

We had an absolute blast! The description of involving appetizers was a little misleading as there was only one app included at the beginning of the tour, but Paul made it 100% worthwhile for all of us! Would definitely buy again!

This was our first time in Charleston and we've taken tours like these in other cities so we thought this would be fun. The tour guide, Daniel, was really nice and had great stories to share, this tour felt a little lack luster. The website advertised "eat, drink and be merry just as the locals do" but the locations we went to didn't feel like places locals would go to. They seemed too modern, too touristy and I didn't get the sense we had found a cool, secret location that if you weren't looking for it, you wouldn't know it was there. I didn't mind having to pay for our own beers but the website also advertised appetizers/snacks and we only had one at the first place so that was a little misleading. Overall, the stories shared were really good but if you're looking to go to cool pubs or anything like that, I would just yelp some spots.

We had a great afternoon touring various unique pubs in historic Charleston. Each had a unique character and plenty of drink options. Our guide Daniel was great, and shared lots of history from the area, not only about the individual pubs and Prohibition but the history of the city in general. This was our fourth visit to Charleston, yet still saw and learned much more about this wonderful city. Definitely a tour to check out.

Daniel led a great laid back tour filled with lots of local history and lore. Enjoyed Irish nachos at the first pub and then drinks (paid for by guests) at 4 other spots. Ended up on a beautiful roof top bar that showed off highlights of Charleston. Met another nice couple and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Thanks Daniel@

Daniel was our tour guide. He was awesome and gave lots of great history lessons! Went to 4 (?) places which was over and beyond what were expecting. Thanks so much!
