This was nothing more than a guy telling ghost stories with a flashlight in dark! I would not recommend.

Purchasing tickets was easy. Located the jail with no difficulties. Guide was knowledgeable about the location and passionate about the subject matter. I didn't see any ghosts.....wait until dark for the best effect

Best ghost tour

I went on a few different ghost tours while in Charleston and this one was by far the best. The guide was very knowledgable about what happened inside the jail and was very open to questions. Highly recommend.

The tour guide was great. He knew his facts and was a good story teller. I wish we would have seen more of the jail as we only saw the outside and three or four inner rooms. It says that its is not meant for children as it can be quite frightening. I scare easily and I was not scared or frightened at all. It could have been ramped up a bit.

Paulette, our guide, was very good and enthusiastic. She was a great storyteller! However, the tour was nothing more than a hot, sticky,uneventful story hour!

My husband and I went on the haunted jail tour, and had a great time. The stories told about some of the prisoners were all very interesting, and knowing that there are several shows that have been done on the jail makes it more believable that there very well could be some ghostly activity going on in there. However, after reading several chapters of a book mentioned during the tour by our guide ("Abode of Misery" available in Kindle edition fyi) I am finding several discrepancies between the information provided on the tour vs the book. Perhaps that would be simply because the tour is for entertainment purposes, and the stories told during the visit to the jail are a lot more interesting than the ones (that have been researched) in the book. Tales that have been passed down for generations and can make the hair on the back of ones neck stand up while hearing them while in a dark room with a small group of people are a lot more interesting. Regardless of what I have now read, I definitely recommend going on this tour; you won't be disappointed, and who knows, maybe you or someone in your group will have a ghostly encounter to share with us in a review. :)

This was one of the best haunted jail tours we've taken. Our tour guide, Sean, was wonderful. He knew his stuff and told the stories very well. He made the jail seem even creepier with the stories he told.

Great fun and worth every penny!

The darkest parts of history often involve terrible deaths and restless souls. Here, we learned about the awful conditions that prisoners at the jail had to endure, as well as some notable inmates and their stories of life, capture, and execution. Fun stuff!

One of the female prisoners there loved jewelry. There was a lady in our group who's bracelet came unhooked multiple times. Tour guides are very informative.
