Murder Walk: A Mystery Walking Tour in Historic Charleston

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet a small group in central Charleston, and start your 90-minute mystery tour by learning the basics of an unsolved murder. Follow a route that weaves through historic Charleston, working with the members of your group to put together the pieces of the crime.
    Charleston history is full of mysteries, murder, and mayhem, from the haunted Old Charleston Jail to highway robbers and pirates. Listen to fun, historic facts about Charleston along the way, getting the stories behind each of the suspects. Weigh clues and alibis for every one, puzzling out the truth. This is an interactive tour, but you can be as involved as you want, and you will not be asked to perform. Finish this tour at a centrally-located point in Charleston.
