Good tour, guide easily distracted
Sat, Oct 25  7:30 PM TCClifford7 Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
My family and I enjoyed this tour. One family member stated it was one of the better she had been on in the area. She would recommend this tour company over Bulldog. Unfortunately in our tour group there were 8 young ladies who had been drinking prior to the tour and they distracted our tour guide throughout the tour, giggling while he was trying to tell ghost stories and chatting him up as we walked between locations....feel like he would have done a better job and tour would have been more enjoyable had it not been for the distractions.

Not only did our tour guide do a great job with providing information and spooky stories, he keep our eight year old nephew highly entertained. We really enjoyed the tour.

The best ghost tour I have ever taken was this tour 5 years ago. This one was without a doubt the worst one of the 6 - 8 that I have taken in cities throughout the country. The guide, while a nice enough guy, was boring. His deliver was forced as though he had practiced it in a mirror. The ghost tales were very generic and had very little to do with the actual area of town that we were in. When you are in one of the most haunted cities in America I would have expected a lot more. I would never use this tour again.

Fun Night Walk Through Charleston
Sun, Oct 19  7:30 PM rickdonnelly Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Frank was a good guide. He seemed to be enjoying the tour as much as we did. It wasn't scary and nothing jumped out at us. But we learned local history about pirates, local legends, and took a tour through a graveyard. Frank spent a lot of time with each different story he told us. So we came away with a good understanding of the history of Charleston and how the history impacted the ghost stories we heard.

Not worth the money

A lot of walking and not so much in terms of terms of the rest of the experience. The one saving grace was that the guide took inside a grave yard. It was raining which added to the ambiance. Other than this stop, the tour was not particularly interesting.

Fun and very entertaining!

Started out at the battery fountain and great story on Blackbeard and Stede Bonnet. One I had never heard before. Route encompassed a couple restaurants and a few churches....and of course a grave yard. All in all very entertaining!

Nailed It

Austin did an excellent job. Our group was an adult and four 11-year old boys for a 7:30pm tour. He catered the tour to the audience. Timed stories to when church bells rang (very cool effect) even pointed out a black cat walking in a graveyard (boys were creeped out) . Had great enthusiasm. Displayed mindful depth and breadth of Charleston, from stories to buildings. The stories he shared were not cheesy, and were offered in a manner that allowed for personal interpretation (believers or non-believers). Used his I-Pad as a visual aid in some of the stories. The fact that this tour agency gets access to the Unitarian graveyard is HUGE. We walked past many of the other tours just standing at the gates, while we walked in. By happen chance, the church Sexton gave us a brief tour of the inside of the church as well. Kids loved it tour.

Somewhat disappointed

Tour guide was courteous and nice, but not very apt for the role. He tried to be spooky and mysterious, but it was somewhat forced. Was overall disappointed.

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
Sun, Aug 10  7:30 PM lindaduncan1 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
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.

Informative and exciting

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!

Fun tour filled with interesting stories/history

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!

There are better tours

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. :-)
