Not impressed
Sat, May 23  9:30 PM Marinoltz Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our guide, Frank, was a little strange and over the top in his presentation. He was overly theatrical which did not work well with the stories. We only had 3 "stories". He had us on the busy street and it was hard to hear and then when we were at St. Phillips Church, we were across the street standing next to a car. He did not take us up to the gate to look at the cemetery. This tour was not worth the money.

Disappointed and disillusioned

We were running late as there was heavy traffic leaving folly Beach. We were contacted by the tour guide and agreed to a secondary location to meet. We specified the current location we were at and the approx. time we would arrive.

We arrived at that location slightly ahead of schedule. No tour guide appeared, the guide also did not answer our return calls.

The lack of content and unenthusiastic guide combined for a decidedly disappointing experience. Would not recommend.

Awesome tour!

I would highly recommend this tour over the others. Our tour guide had so much energy and he was really comfortable to talk to and ask questions. We felt like we learned a lot and had a great time! He also was very knowledgeable about the city :)

Very informative and historical. Not necessarily very scary but that's OK. Guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Frank did a fantastic job on this - very accurate historically AND tells a great story. I would do it again just to listen to him tell the stories again!

PLEASE don't forget to tip these guys. On the tour we went on we were the only ones who tipped.

Nice non-scary, family-friendly ghost tour
Fri, Apr 17  9:30 PM jamestreee Male 30-39 Local Family With Children
Robert did a great job, and obviously has a passion for the history as well as the storytelling. He's a retired schoolteacher, and it certainly shows. My 9yr old thoroughly enjoyed herself, as did my wife and myself. If you're looking to be scared out of your skin, this isn't really the tour for you. However, if you're looking for a 'spooky' but family/kid-friendly outing in cool weather, while learning about the various haunts around town and their history, look no further.

Our whole group was a bit disappointed with this tour. Our tour guide was enthusiastic but he seemed to present the stories in a joking manner. I can't say that I myself am a believer in ghosts but I would like my tour guide to act like he believes in them and in the stories that he is presenting. We were hoping for some good, historical, creepy ghost stories but didn't feel like that's what we got. I probably would not recommend this tour to friends.

Great tour, small group!
Sun, Apr 5  7:30 PM KelleySk Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My husband, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Frank as our guide. It was not hokey, but full of history and charm of Charleston! Our daughter is 14 and loved hearing the stories of ghosts in the area, while we also enjoyed the pictures provided for reference from an ipad! Going into the Unitarian Church graveyard was really neat!

Overdramatized boredom
Sat, Apr 4  9:30 PM Nufrie Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We took a tour years ago with Julian and loved every minute. This time we were just told ridiculous stories by some hired hand that got boring after a while. The difference between a historian and a story teller was dramatic. Literally.

Frank was excellent!!
Fri, Apr 3  7:30 PM sylviafcclg Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I took a group of teenagers and they all loved it! It was the exact right amount of history and ghost story. Frank told the stories in ways that my group loved. He also filled the walking time by talking to the kids. It was great!

waste of money

This tour was not worth it. The guide was not exciting or interesting and the few stories were not great--this may have been due to the guide's inability to tell a good story, but also didn't visit many sites that are supposedly haunted. Left off Dock Street theater, City Jail, and others. Disappointed.
