Attended with my husband, adult son and his girlfriend. We all enjoyed it. We didn't see or hear anything supernatural, unfortunately, but the stories of the jail were very interesting and our tour guide was very informative!

Very interesting tour through the Old Jail. Great for history enthusiasts. Spooky setting and lots of fun! Loved it so much we wish the tour was longer than 45 minutes!

Most anticipated tour ends up satisfying every wan

My boyfriend and I decided to take this tour over the others mainly because of the reviews. Well now after experiencing it first hand I can tell you that it is the best ghost tour. If you do only one thing in Charleston you must make it the old jail ghost tour. It was worth every penny and more because you not only get the history of the building, you get the experience you will never be able to stop talking about. Our tour guide was amazing, they all seemed really good in their own way.

Learning history and tales about the jail was very interesting. I expected more "haunting" which only came at the very end, but our group was satisfied.

Cool Building Terrible Tour Guide

This activity had a lot of potential, but the tour guide was absolutely miserable. I'm pretty sure he had a bet with one of his friends to see how quickly he could go through the script. Or maybe he's just moonlighting at this gig until his auctioneer career takes off, I don't know. All I know is he spoke 8 million words a second and did absolutely nothing to hide the fact that he was reciting a well, well practiced script. I say practiced and not rehearsed, because 'rehearsed' would imply some sort of theatrics or at least enough tonal inflections to know when he was making a statement, asking a question, or telling a joke. At one point as we were walking down the hall, I asked him to slow down his story telling, and he responded, "Gotta go, gotta go". The only reason our tour lasted until 10:45 minutes is because it started late, we stood in silence in the dark for about 10 minutes (actually a highlight of tour. Totally freaky), and afterwards I took it upon myself to do a self guided tour of the courtyard, where I found a pretty cool gallows that the guide failed to show us. So in short, don't go with our tour guide and/or don't go on the last tour of the weekend (Saturday at 10:00pm). I think his name was Glen, but again, he talked so fast that Glen could have been the name of one of the ghosts or it could have just been how he pronounced, "glad you came in".

a waste of time...

What a waste! The tour guide had an attitude problem, half of the jail was closed off for renovations, and it wasn't the least bit scary!
