Ghosts of Charleston Tour Guide, Rhett, was not only interesting but well spoken and knowledgeable. He made the tour fun and educational and seemed to cater to all ages. Well done!

I have been on ghost tours in Bermuda, London, Williamsburg, Virginia and this one was very disappointing. It was less of a ghost Tour and more of a educational tour. The tour guide was great ... but either they don’t have enough ghosts (which I can’t believe) but the book they are following for the tour was greatly disappointing. This tour is not for anyone who is really looking for a ghost tour where you get 2 hours of information of ghosts and where ghosts appear.

Mr. Neall did an excellent job as our tour guide! Plus, the book store we met at had a lot of great selection. Highly recommend!

Gregg was amazing. Very knowledgeable and fun. Not cheesy. Exactly what one would want even a tad scary! Awesome guide.

I have been on ghost tours all over the country and this was one of the worst!

It was all long stories about people that lived and died here. I was hoping for incidents and sightings
and actual anecdotes, maybe even some photos others had taken. None of that was included.

It was a fun walk through town with a great guide. The history of the area is amazing and to hear the ghostly side of it was entertaining!

Our Tour was well organised, The commentary was excellent Our Guide Alexandra was very knowledgeable about her subject and obviously had a love of history and the beautiful city of Charlestown.
My tip would be to wear good walking shoes as the cobblestones made walking difficult at times. Also take water even though the tour was after dark it was still hot and steamy. excellent value for money.

My fiancé and I did the 9:30pm tour, which was the perfect time since it was dark, cool, and quiet for the most part. We were with Greg and he was GREAT! Very funny and really knew what he was talking about. If you like to hear about the history while also being a bit spooked out, this is the one!
