Itinerary
Meet your guide at a central location in downtown Charleston and prepare to walk the streets of this historic and haunted city.

Follow your guide down cobbled alleyways and past spooky sites that played a role in Charleston’s past. As you walk, your guide tells obscure stories from Charleston’s early days as a colony, through the Civil War, and up to the present that most history tours skip. Hear about restless souls, paranormal activity, and plans gone awry that make the Holy City one of the most haunted places in the South.

Please note that you do not enter any buildings or graveyards on this tour, and it is not recommend for children 6 and younger.

Awesome and so so scary

We loved it, but be prepared. Charleson is a city of ghosts and even if you are non believer, the ghost tour is psychologically terrifying. It's AMAZING
