We had a really fun time on our haunted jail tour. It was historical, informative, and the jail house was amazing. However, our tour guide's information was so scripted it frequently sounded like bad acting. Keep in mind, the jail is poorly ventilated and has no AC, so it was extremely hot and stuffy. The tour was shorter than we expected and far less scary than advertised. The tour group was huge so be prepared to crowd into small hot rooms with tons of other people. Overall we enjoyed ourselves, and it was worth the 20 bucks.

A bit disappointing

We attended the Haunted Jail Tour after taking part in the Dungeon Tour. It was billed as the scarier tour, so we wanted to have that experience. While it was interesting to see the old jail, there were not as many stories and the tour only took you to a few rooms. The fact the jail is currently being used as a college takes away from the mystery and suspense of the place.

Not worth it.

We have done other ghost tours which we found more enjoyable. This tour only goes through the jail. It is extremely hot and stuffy. The tour guide was very difficult to understand. The stories told were hard to follow and not enjoyable. Save your money or try a different tour.

This tour was a great insight into Charleston's spooky history. Disclaimer: Don't bring your toddler. It won't be fun for anybody.

Enjoyed the tour with neice, her friend and their moms. Our guide was really good and informative. HOT building and tough stairs but we were warned prior. Definitely got scared at the end. Recommend for anyone.
