Our guide was enthusiastic about his subject matter and highly knowledgeable about pirate history. My family has done many Charleston ghost tours over the years, and we all enjoyed this one -- thought it was one of the best we’ve been on!

We were the only family on our tour and I was a little concerned at first that our kids would get bored, but Eric was fantastic and kept our kids engaged during the entire 90 minute Pirate Ghost tour. It was fascinating to learn about Charleston's history of pirates, along with some scary ghost stories when it started to get dark. Eric is so knowledgeable about the history of Charleston and it really gave us a good basis before we visited the Old Exchange Provost and Dungeon. My 7 year old soaked it all in and is still reciting facts that he learned on the tour.

We did the pirate history tour! It was very interesting and we learned a lot about Blackbeard, Bonet, and many other pirates. Really enjoyed it!

Wonderful experience for children and adults alike! Captain Sabrina did a fantastic job keeping the kids involved and excited about learning about pirates and hunting for treasure! Great way to spend a morning. You can visit the Powder Magazine for free after the treasure hunt too! My second time taking grandkids!
