At nightfall, meet your guide at a central location in downtown Charleston to start your ghost tour. Walk straight to the Provost Dungeon, a pre-revolutionary cellar inside the Old Exchange building that is rumored to be haunted. As you tour the prison, learn the real story of the hundreds of captives held here during the American Revolution.

Then, continue the rest of your tour down the cobblestone streets and back alleyways of one of the oldest cities in the United States. Your guide shares stories of haunted houses, ghosts, and Lowcountry superstitions that put a spooky twist on Charleston history.

Tour concludes near original departure point.

Just okay

This tour is fine if you just want a simple overview of the ghost-related history of Charleston. I would have liked a little more detail and specificity from our guide. She knew enough to keep it from being boring, and she was very nice, but...More

Great tour for a high school aged Girl Scout group

My group of 8 girls and 5 adults loved this tour. It was very good - spooky and educational. One word of caution - bring a water bottle - it is very, very hot in the summer!

Not a good idea .Walking on 250 to 300 yr or brick streets and streets paved with river rock might be considered dangerous.
