Spend the same money on a longer tour

For the price, it wasn't worth the 45 minute tour. Some of the history was neat, but it left a lot to be desired. At the end, our guide said he held back on some of the more gruesome stories. Why? If the audience were mainly adults (and we were), share some of the more disturbing tales. Also, our guide was dressed in flip flops and a ratty t-shirt. I'm not saying dress up like a warden to add to the element, but at least dress nice.

We did not think this was very interesting at all... the docent was un-enthusiastic and sounded like a recording. You visit 3 rooms it was boring!

The history lesson was good, but the ghost stories not so much

A good history lesson

Obviously, the chances of you seeing a ghost on any type of ghost tour are very slim, and my group and I knew this going in. However, the guide was a little too dramatic for our tastes. It was actually a little corny. He was very nice and also very educated about the jail, but his style undermined his knowledge. It would have been more interesting if he cited his findings and perhaps even provided pictures of the spirits he told us about. Otherwise, not trying to get on a soapbox here, but charleston was absolutely BRILLIANT! It was my first time there and I fell deeply in love with this gorgeous city. I think the "ghost" walking tour would have been more relevant for me... Anything to walk the streets of Charleston more!! ❤️

A great tour with a very knowledgeable and fun guide. Recommended for those who like a creepy factor to learning their history.
