My wife and I love to do the ghost tours, especially ones that teach local history and add the flair of the unknown. We have been on tours from Edinburgh, Scotland to Seattle Washington and many others in the US. We enjoyed this tour as it was informative and had a little extra from Mike's personal experience. For a fun evening we would recommend taking this tour.

Never thought I’d find so many fossils !! Trip was a great guide. Bring water. Rather than a hike it’s just a long walk on the beach. Can’t wait to do again!

Looked forward to a ghost tour in Charleston. Having been on them in New Orleans, Savannah, London, etc. I had an expectation and this was not even close. The guide was long winded and not engaging. Just used his iPad and promoted his podcast. We passed by several other tours guides that seemed to have their customers engaged. We wound up leaving early. Would not recommend. Total waste of money.

Response from Michael B, Owner at Old Charleston Walking Tours
Responded 6 days ago
I am always disappointed when someone doesn't enjoy the tour. I thought that I was engaging with this customer specifically when i asked them about their tour in New Orleans and shared with them the story of The Westfield Watcher of New Jersey (I encourage you to google it) as we were walking to our first stop. The tablet is used to show pictures related to the stories and the podcast is only mentioned when it is relevant. These things are used to accentuate the presentation but are not offered as a substitution for storytelling. There is another review from the same night which offers a different perspective on the tour.

Mike is a great tour guide. Very informative and kept us all interested with his facts and stories. We will take another tour from him next time we are in town.
