Overview
Put a fun twist on a traditional history tour with this Charleston ghost tour, which takes you through the Holy City and to its spookiest attractions. As you walk through the streets, your guide tells macabre tales of generals, murderers, and thieves who played a role in Charleston's past—and whose spirits just might still linger in haunted locations around the city.

What to Expect
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.

Adam was great! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. We were able to get a private tour due to the rainy weather and others canceling their reservations. Would definitely recommend!
