We enjoyed our pirate tour very much! Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging. Not only to us, but to those passing by as well. He did a fantastic job of telling you the history and tying up the loose ends by the end of the tour. A delightful experience! Would definitely recommend to others!!!

The fabric and personality of Charles town are unique and acclimating to the beginnings of this important port city through this tour.... prepares and explains the founding elements, the burgeoning culture, and the lusty intrigue of Charleston's early years. The necessary romance with legendary pirates... More

This was one of the best tours we have ever done. Our guide (dressed as a pirate with a live parrot) was soooo knowledgable that it was overwhelming! He knows so much abut the history of the pirate trade in this area, details, stories, and will back it up with references if you want to know. This tour added a... More

First time for my wife and I to visit Charleston and there is plenty to do. I'm always one for history and ghost adventures and this fitted the bill to a tee. Called and had a no hassle reservation, the lady in which ended up being our host for the evening was very cool and great to talk to. Answered... More

Sabrina is super knowledgeable and very friendly. We ended up being the only two people on the tour, and got to go at our own pace and ask a ton of questions (we were there in the middle of the week). Definitely recommend this!

The tour was great. Eric is a great story teller and knows Pirates. My daughter and myself attended and she really enjoyed hearing about all of the different pirate stories. She even bought a book about the South Carolina Pirates afterwards. It was very warm, but Eric did his best to keep us in the shade and we were able... More

Eric our guide is clearly an expert in pirate history. He described pirate culture, traditions and the histories of several of the more notorious pirates associated with Charleston. He kept the tour light with periodic jokes and ironic observations. Would recommend this tour. He also responded to an emailed question after the tour which I had failed to ask during... More

My 9 year old grandson chose this tour as part of his birthday celebration. We first visited the Provost Dungeon then met the guide Eric for the evening tour.. He loved the way Eric was dressed like a real pirate and enjoyed this stories. Although we walked a lot, the pace was good and it was so interesting even in... More

We took the Children's Treasure Hunt tour. My girls are 4 and 7 and really enjoyed following the map to find the treasure. Sabrina our Pirate guide was fantastic! Adults and Children were very entertained and also educated by her stories. I highly recommend this tour.
