Good tour but has potential to be better

We were excited to tour the old jail, but were disappointed that we only visited three rooms on the tour. Would have been better if the guide spent less time in each room to leave time to tour more of the jail. Our guide was very friendly, funny, and knowledgeable.

Although the building itself is very interesting, the tour was lacking, could have been the guide we had, but found it to be a waste. The only thing I found very interesting was that part of the old jail is used for students studying historic restoration - I thought that was very cool. Our guide pointed out the ticket $ went to their benefit, very glad about that, would have donated $ to them and skipped the boring tour...

Although we didn't get to see a ghost, our tour guide Glenn was knowledgable and enthusiastic about the history of the jail. We learned a lot about history and prisons in America in the early days and enjoyed the tour very much.

Historically informative with a little spookiness!

Highly recommend this tour. Definitely a little of Charleston's darker history. Tour guide (Shawn) did a great job. Maybe a little inappropriate for young children...just a little scary is all.

Great haunted treat

Shawn was our guide per request after we read so many good things about him. He did not disappoint! My kids and I all loved the tour. We got some great pictures and even heard some creepy noises on the tour. One lady lost all power in her phone in one room and then the power was fully restored after walking out. Definitely some paranormal stuff in there. We would do this or any of the haunted tours again.

Too short

Would be nice to have limited "free" time (supervised, of course). The rooms were pretty small, so a lot of people with flashes make picture taking difficult.
