I am currently in Charleston for a travel job assignment. So, I tried out the Pub Stroll to find out more about locations downtown. Ending up being a blast! Met some wonderful people, great bars that I will continue to venture back to and the guide was so much fun with lots of knowledge about the history and places to go. I definitely recommend going on a pub stroll to everyone that visits Charleston.

We had an awesome time at the pub crawl! More than we could have asked for. We were pleasantly surprised as we were unsure of what to expect. Mike was a brilliant guide who was very knowledgeable, fun-loving and always kept the group involved. The many stops were perfect to summarize the history of Charleston and we learned a lot and better yet had a great night. Could not have asked for more

We were really pleasantly surprised with how much fun we had on the Charles Towne Pub Stroll. We spent Thanksgiving weekend in Charleston (our first trip to that wonderful city) and wanted to have a fun way to get a little "behind the scenes" history of Charleston. I was a little skeptical when we linked up with our guide and he was fully decked out as a pirate, but he was hilarious and very knowledgeable of the city's hidden history. We hit 5 pubs, all good calls. Our guide was really personable and made the evening very memorable. Highly recommend.

Thank for taking the time to review us, and thanks for the recommendation! We're glad that you enjoyed the tour. Michael, our pirate guide for the Pub Stroll, is a virtual encyclopaedia of Charleston history and a great storyteller.

We had a great time on this tour. Alan, our guide, was wonderful. We enjoyed all the pubs he took us to and we made some great new friends. We even went back to one of pubs after the tour was over with some others from the group! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy the nightlife in Charleston.

Thank you for posting the review and for the recommendation! We're glad that you enjoyed the tour and made some new friends. Alan actually started the Pub Stroll. When he's not touring pubs, he's the director of one of the museums in Charleston.

We took this tour on Friday night. The tour guide, Alan, was humorous but also knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. We enjoyed the different pubs he took us in, but wished we weren't leaving the next day so we could go back to them! I would say this is a must-do for adults visiting Charleston!
