  • Such a fun tour! We scheduled the Thursday night tour, but dinner ran late, so they let us jump in on the Friday night tour, no problem! Such a fun tour and our guide was such a nice, Charleston Nativ...  more »

  • We knew we wanted to take a "ghost" tour of the city as it was our first time there and Charleston is rich with history. I'll start out by saying I'm not into the whole ghost thing, we didn't come thi...  more »

  • Perfect end to a beautiful trip. Interesting background to popular haunted paths and buildings. Not too long of a walk about 1.2 miles? Maybe a little longer. I liked that he showed us pictures of suspicious things at each site. Not too scary as I needed to sleep here one more night. The best part though is that our group was about 10 people. We passed many other groups that looked to be about 20 or more people for one guide. Too crowded for me. I was with a couple of friends but given the size of the groups don't be afraid to go solo.
  • I made a reservation for the 9 o'clock tour tonight, July 6. I called 2 hours before the tour because it was pouring. The guy I talked to RUDELY interrupted me and said "it will pass, we are still going". We held off for another hour and it was still raining so I called back, once again he was extremely RUDE. He talked down to me and wouldn't listen to anything I would say. He also informed me for the first time that there was a 3 hour cancellation policy. I was very polite and he was basically yelling at me the whole time. NO WHERE did it said RAIN OR SHINE. Even though the rain eased up, I can't believe that he would think I would still want to go on a tour after treating me like that. This is beyond ridiculous.

Where to stay in Charleston

Charleston is serviced by dozens of local hotels and practically every major U.S. chain. Expect to pay top dollar for a room on the downtown peninsula, particularly if you wish to stay in one of the historic hotels. The upside of taking a room there is the proximity of all major attractions--you won't need a car to explore and enjoy your visit. Less expensive options are available in North Charleston, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant, where you'll find all kinds of inns for the budget-conscious traveler.
