It's was awesome to hear the history of the city. However, one of my guests in our party kept getting scolded by our tour guide if he said anything that me quietly while the guide was talking. I really didn't appreciate that , seeing as I paid for seven people in my party.

We did the early Ghost Tour with our kids and Greg was our tour guide. He was awesome! Great stories and he was incredibly patient with our autistic son's multiple questions! Would highly recommend!

Greg was an awesome tour guide and story-teller as we wound our way thorough Charleston. His tales were based on multiple confirmed sightings of spooky things. We ended in a very creepy Unitarian Church grave yard that only this company has access to after dark. Be aware - there is a lot of walking, some of it on cobble stone... More

We took the 7:30 tour with Mr. Neil - he's a professional actor, and it showed. His stories were captivating and enthralling. It was clear that we were on the best ghost tour in Charleston. He ended the tour with a monologue of "Annabelle Lee" by Edgar Allen Poe in the Unitarian Graveyard, which was truly captivating. There was a... More

We booked this tour with ease the night before and checked in at the address without problems. Our guide, Randy, did a great job telling us about ghost stories as well as the historical significance tied to the destinations we went. The tour did end in a graveyard, so if that's a "no go" for someone, be prepared; otherwise, an... More

The locations were great, we especially enjoyed the cemetery at the end. It's nice to hear stories of individuals who lived in Charleston.

We enjoyed our tour and the stories that our guide shared. You must wear your walking shoes and be prepared to walk at a pretty fast pace. There were times when the guide would be telling information and it was difficult to hear due to the street traffic or the volume of his voice. At the conclusion of the tour,... More

We took our family of 15 on the walking tour called Lost Stories of Black Charleston. Our group ranged from 11 to 80. It was enjoyable for everyone and very educational. The guide is an adjunct history professor. He has written multiple books and is an absolute expert on the area. Damien is also an actor and can hold the... More
