Overview

Walks In History, LLC is happy to provide the Supernatural Charleston tour, the #3 ranked best ghost tour in the U.S. in Coastal Living Magazine in 2016 and Yahoo! News in 2017. Walks In History has the highest customer satisfaction rate on Tripadvisor of any supernatural tour company in Charleston for nearly seven years in a row, with Certificates of Excellence awarded by Tripadvisor every year since 2011. The Supernatural Charleston Tour begins at the ca. 1822 Old Citadel and ca. 1770 College of Charleston, two historic areas that mark two significant revolutions in American history that are revealed through light-hearted yet spooky documented stories of spirits in the Holy City. The Old Citadel (converted into an Embassy Suites) has been titled the 'Most Haunted Hotel in the South' according to Huffington Post, because of its murky inception tied to the persecuted and famed Mother Emmanuel (ca. 1816). The Supernatural Charleston tour meets in the heart of the historic peninsula, one of the oldest parts of the Holy City, Marion Square, where guests will also see the 1758 tabby rock defense wall, as well as the 1790-1810 remains of America's first city orphanage. Stories are based on the local bestselling Haunted Charleston first published in 2004, and now in its seventh printing. Historic sightseeing walks (without ghost stories) are also offered during the day per request and availability.
