Mr. Cody provided a very in depth and detailed trip into Charleston's history. Not only was he rich and passionate about the city he was also very polite and took great care to explain every detail of our surroundings and to every question asked. I would highly recommend anyone visiting the downtown Charleston area to share in this experience.

Historical ghost tour

The tour was interesting. Our guide was a little too dramatic for my taste but the others in our group liked it. The best part was the tour of the cemetery. Without the cemetery I would not give the tour 4 stars. The guide was entertaining.

A big shout out to Frank who was a wonderful tour guide. Not only did we have a ghost tour, but learned a lot about Charleston 's history. Meeting at the Waterfront Park was easy to find and relaxing, as we just spent a few hours dining and shopping before our 7:30 tour. Being able to enter into the Unitarian Church's graveyard just as it was getting dark added to the mystery and fun. The tour held the interest of our two teenage boys and they also liked Frank's energy and presentation. Great job!

We enjoyed the ghost tour! Our guide Cody was very informative and made it interesting. We were able to hear stories/history about places in Charleston that you wouldn't get to hear otherwise. We would definitely recommend going on the tour!

Found guide to be knowledgeable but delivery was very poor. Not very animated. Disappointed in the tour- not very spooky at all. I've been on a better tour a few years back. Not recommended.

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. :-)

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.

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.

Mon, Jul 14  7:30 PM turnermk Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
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).

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.
