USD 29.00
2 travellers
Experience the chills of Charleston's only on-site graveyard tour. You will get an exclusive opportunity to walk inside the gates of Charleston's oldest graveyard after dark. Walk through Charleston's haunted Historic District, and hear stories of ghosts, haunted houses, voodoo and Low-country superstitions.
  • Gain special after-hours access to one of Charleston’s oldest cemeteries
  • Hear spooky stories and local legends from your guide, an area native
  • Your guide makes sure you don’t get lost in the city at night
  • Two departure times offered for your convenience
What to Expect
This ghost-and-graveyard tour meets in a central Charleston location. Your guide will lead your group on foot to Charleston’s oldest cemetery for special after-hours access. At the graveyard, hear stories of local legends such as Sue Howard, who’s been known to haunt her child’s grave—your guide even has a photo to show you. You’ll hear other stories to make your skin crawl, including a tale about people being buried alive in the very spot you’re standing. You’ll even hear a few lesser-known stories about voodoo in Charleston. The nighttime darkness adds to the creepy ambiance, and it’s recommended you bring a pocket flashlight with you if you’re easily scared. Both tour times end early enough, so you can continue on to enjoy the city’s nightlife on your own.

I was so excited about being shown some of the darker history of Charleston, but this tour missed the mark entirely. Maybe it was just our guide, but aside from a couple of interesting stories and being in the graveyard at night, this stunk. "Spooky"...More

That's some tough love, Melissa, and we're grateful for it. What we're hearing from you is that the tour wasn't scary enough, that the atmosphere wasn't solemn enough, that it wasn't sufficiently "spooky" for you. We're sorry about that, so we're following up with your...More

Cemeteries are fascinating, day or night. Learning the history of some Charleston residents gone by was educational and fun. Adam really has a good passion for the subject and his enthusiasm really made the tour fun.More
