Itinerary
Pass By:  
Tour Charleston
During our 90 minute walking ghost tour, our City of Charleston licensed tour guides recount hauntings and supernatural events from our best-selling book The Ghosts of Charleston. We are fortunate to have many repeat guests, and lots of tales to share, so we switch things up nightly by varying ghosts stories on every tour. There is no experience like walking enchanted Charleston at night, listening to our supernatural stories, and encountering what you will see and hear in the Unitarian Church Graveyard.
Stop At:  
Unitarian Church in Charleston
The highlight of Tour Charleston's Ghosts of Charleston Tour is entering the lush, spellbinding Unitarian Church Graveyard built in 1772. Real time hauntings occur only a handful of times a year. However, since 1996, when we started what is now Charleston's oldest ghost tour, spirits in the Unitarian Church Graveyard have reached out to many people on our tour in visual, tactile and auditory ways.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Tour guide was a nice kid. Stories were boring. Not scary. And not interesting. And I expected stories from the 1800… not 1994. Maybe there just aren’t any real haunting sun Charleston.

Best Ghost Tour I have ever taken!

This was the best ghost tour I have ever taken! The group was small (just my family of 4 and another couple) which made the experience personal and interactive. Jonathon, our guide, provided historical facts and shared documented encounters of real incidents as recorded in the book “The Ghosts of Charleston”. As a skeptic, I found myself genuinely spooked when we walked through the Unitarian Church Graveyard in complete darkness using their exclusive access to the property. It allowed us to avoid the crowds and feel the presence of the paranormal. It was awesome! I usually never write reviews…who has time…but this was an exceptional tour and a must do!

Simon was an outstanding guide. You can tell that he has a true passion for his work, or even art, as he truly immerses himself into the Spirit world while he tells the stories of times past. As a bonus, he might get side tracked and you can learn some other history in the area. Will definitely come back on this tour, and asking for Simon again!!

Joe surely knew his script and was caught up in the drama of his presentation -- not much effort to engage his group. Surprised there were no upfront comments re: safety, walking on uneven dark grounds, what to expect in the cemetery,etc. He walked fast. Even if we could keep up, it seemed he was rushing and not much concerned whether the group was enjoying the tour. as In the dark cemetery he strided ahead, showing no care for leaving many behind to try to find our way. There could have been more attention to ghost lore.

Coleman was a great guide. He shared the history of the city and the ghosts that inhabit it. He was able to incorporate his personal experiences growing up in Charleston and his love of poetry into the tour. We really enjoyed our ghost tour.
