Overview
More
Stroll with our pirates & colonial rogues to Charleston's favorite taverns. Hear unusual stories of the scandalous and bizarre. This is not your run-of-the-mill history tour. Discover why Charleston is not only steeped in history, but also steeped in spirits. Your period-dressed guide will regale you with stories of early drinking, Prohibition-era criminals, and the historical oddities of the Holy City. Along the narrated route, the tour will stop at three to five pubs and taverns, where guests may purchase a sample of Charleston's finest brews and spirits. If time allows, typically at least one location will allow for the purchase of appetizers.

Mike is the best. Very knowledgeable of Charleston history, great stories and of course, great taverns. Plenty of time to eat and drink at most places we stopped. Highly recommended.
