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.

This was a fun way to see a different side of Charleston. Our guide was a great storyteller who was so comfortable with the characters in his stories, it felt like he had been there when they took place centuries ago. My wife and I and our two teenagers all enjoyed it.

Greg was awesome, knowledgeable, and friendly! The tour was long enough to be interesting but didn’t require a massive amount of walking which is nice after a day of walking the city.
