Ghost historical legend tour of Charleston
Fri, Jul 25  7:30 PM williamcagla Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My wife and I enjoyed the tour given by Cody along the Charleston streets and hearing his stories and anecdotes. It was entertaining as well as educational such as hearing the stories of the pirate hangings and the photo of the woman kneeling at the gravestone with her child. if he had turned off the lights in the graveyard that would be more scary. :-)

Enjoyed the Ghost Tour by tour guide Cody. He was very knowledgable and had a very good personality. My group in all had a nice time.

A little hokey and not very entertaining
Mon, Jul 21  9:30 PM Sbarnett6 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our 13 year old thought this would be a fun, entertaining activity while visiting Charleston. My husband and I consented, thinking we'd hear some interesting local stories about perceived ghosts. We were only told 3-4 stories and they were long and drawn-out with not much connection with what we were seeing (two were related to graves that we couldn't even see in the graveyard from outside the gates). The tour guide did provide a few basic history facts that were interesting. We entered one graveyard at which the tour guide took out her phone with a "spirit detector" - she totally lost us after that. I'm not sure exactly what we were expecting but this was not worth the time or money. Even our daughter thought it was pretty unexciting.

Five of use went Saturday night with Ryan, and he could not have been more accommodating nor helpful. It was a great performance, and the best Ghost Tour ever! Thank you so much! Amy

Worst tour ever. Could do without the smart phone app the tour guide used. Similar tours being held at the same time and locations. Thought about leaving the tour midway but thought it might get better. It didn't.

A bit dull

The guide was nice. Her knowledge of Charleston history was decent (if flawed in a few spots). We stopped a great deal mosquito filled alleys where there was nothing to see. The tour consisted, pretty much, of going near cemeteries and hearing a single (or, occasionally, two) stories. I would have liked more stories and more variety in locales. Four of the group had done the same tour fifteen years and had a much better experience at that times (then, the tour had gone into Hoogan's Porch and other locales).

Austin was a fantastic tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and kept even the most skeptical people in our group intrigued.

Good variety on the tour covering a lot of different stories and events. Guide did well at pointing out other significant historical events. The 7:30 tour was perfect to fully see the places being talked about.

Not what we had expected
Sun, May 25  9:30 PM VThokieGal Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were pretty disappointed overall with this tours. Our guide only discussed three historical ghost tails in the entire hour we were on the tour. We didn't actually get to go inside any of the discussed locations. The tour ended in a cemetery where we spent 20 minutes following the guide around while she used a "Ghost Radar" app on her phone, which was less than impressive. We did other tours in Charleston, including the carriage tour and harbor tour, and this was our least favorite.

Quality, Intimate, and Informative
Sun, May 18  7:30 PM Mosquito81 Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
The ghost tour exceeded my expectation. My expectation was low and expected a pimple faced college student talking about stuff memorized from the internet with other people in the group to be drunken hooligans. I was wrong. Our guide was very educated and engaging. Our group was only my girlfriend, myself, and another couple, who were great company. Our guide was an exceptional woman who took pride in her job and had an intimate knowledge of the history of Charleston. I was blown away by the quality and fun. Well done!

Very poorly done
Fri, May 2  9:30 PM lprather Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I've taken ghost tours in many cities in the US. While they tend to vary in quality and style, this one was the worst I have ever been on. The guide seemed to be in a huge rush to get the tour over and done with. He made no attempt to take advantage of any atmosphere. The sites visited were interesting on their own, but the stories were delivered in a rush and without any theatrical skill. We felt like we were keeping him from watching the football game or from some other activity he would much rather be doing. Skip it. Not worth the money.
