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.

Tour seemed more a platform for guide to perform than actual ghost experiences. Needs more substance less theatrics

Such a fun experience. We took two 10 year olds who were mesmerized by Simon's story telling skills. What a gift he has for leading that tour. Would certainly recommend as churches in Charleston are such an important part of the city's heritage.

What I’ll say is it wasn’t terrible but certainly not great. Guide was late and would only speak when you got to certain spots- long walks with him totally silent. He sounded like he was faking a thick accent for dramatic affect I guess. And finished early! Was definitely disappointed.
