Just as I expected. Cheesy, spooky ghost stories in a dark, spooky setting. The creepy cemetery visit was a very nice touch! Al can certainly tell a story!

Mark was an enthusiastic guide that knew the area and answered the majority of questions. The guide takes you into a cemetery to tell you a little about the history of the cemetery and its famous ghost.

My children (14 and 18) were hoping for a jail or dungeon. They were disappointed that it was more "friendly" ghost oriented. That was a pleasure for me!

Our guide was personable and FUNNY. We had a terrific evening!

This was the worst ghost tour I have been on. Where to start....We would go to a location and the guide would tell a story about something that happened in Mt P or Edisto. This is a tour of CHARLESTON. Why are we at a church or warehouse and you are telling a story about something completely unrelated to our location. We took a tour to learn about the ghosts in Charleston. On one stop we were behind a warehouse the guide said was haunted (very brief mention). He basically pointed at the building and said "this is reported to the haunted" and then told a story about an inn keeper in Mt P who killed her guests. So no story about the haunted building behind us and instead a story that doesn't involve ghosts. On another stop he talked about the witch trials in Salem.

Our tour guide was well informed, but had a horrible delivery. Corny jokes don't belong on a ghost tour. We are there to be scared, or at least a little creeped out. Making comments about Eastman Kodak going out of business when showing us a picture of a ghost in a book is not what I paid for. He didn't even take us close enough to look into the graveyard at St Phillips to see where the picture in the book was taken. If I wanted to look at pictures in a book, I just would have bought a book. There were people in our group that tried to get closer to the wall around the graveyard, but our guide was already walking to the next location.

Walking through the graveyard at the Unitarian church was cool, but once again the mood was ruined by poor story telling and bad jokes. Horrible pirate impressions did not impress the crowd.

Overall I was incredibly disappointed and I will not be using this tour company again. My guests were ready to just walk away and leave the group, but thankfully the tour ended. In the future when I have out of town guests we will not use Tour Charleston for anything.
