Owner description: Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston! Based upon similar beer tours in Europe, we have been featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. The Pub Tour is a fun and unique tour, which includes visits to many historic pubs (some with rooftop views of the city), old taverns frequented by pirates, breweries haunted by ghosts, and a large dose of Charleston's history. Our exclusive Brewery Tours highlight Charleston's local craft beer scene and are a great way to sample a variety of local brews while hearing the fascinating story behind Charleston beer, with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of several local breweries. The Original Pub & Brewery Tours are definitely the most exciting way to experience the city and everything LOCAL! We often sell out quickly so we recommend making reservations in advance. We accommodate groups of all sizes and will customize any group/event tours to your specific needs. Cheers!

It was a cold rainy day that turned into a wonderful evening. My group's tour guide Daniel showed my group around a bit of Charleston through a eventful pub crawl. Daniel was informative, professional, incredibly personable and charming. There was history, delicious appetizers, and local brews. Daniel knows his beers. It was a great time and if I am ever in Charleston again I would return!

It’s always fun to come across someone who loves their job. This happened recently when I took this tour! Mind you, if you’re looking for an in-depth history of Charleston & its earliest beginnings, the psychology of those who were there first, etc., go look somewhere else. But if you’re looking for a casual afternoon or evening guided pub crawl with Charleston’s overall history, this is the tour for you. Kyle, the tour operator & transplanted Texan, obviously loves the city. He was very knowledgeable, reciting, yes, a memorized script, but he was a wealth of information about our favorite subject: pubs! Or bars, nightclubs, whatever you want to call them. His irreverent humor & knowledge made this tour enjoyable. He truly wants to make his customers happy. I appreciate this attentiveness & dedication to customer service. I would recommend Kyle to anyone planning to travel to the area.

Good beer, good company - just the two of us and a couple from Washington plus Daniel the knowledgeable guide. Eclectic choice of pubs and beers and a couple of good appetizers to boot! Want to spend a afternoon that gets better as the beers go down. Try this. Book hotel room or taxi for afterwards.

My husband and I and our friends took the pub tour on a chilly afternoon in Charleston. Daniel, who led the tour, was very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston and certainly knew some great bars. We sampled local beers and enjoyed the different atmosphere in each location. Don't plan on eating dinner right after the tour. If the beer doesn't fill you up, the wonderful appetizers will!

Daniel did a fantastic job touring the five people in my group around, which ended up being a private tour as no one else had signed up this time of year. He was very knowledgeable of the local history, as well as the local craft beers, which made for a great combination. We loved the tour and would absolutely recommend it.
