Overview
Put a fun twist on a traditional history tour with this Charleston ghost tour, which takes you through the Holy City and to its spookiest attractions. As you walk through the streets, your guide tells macabre tales of generals, murderers, and thieves who played a role in Charleston's past—and whose spirits just might still linger in haunted locations around the city.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a central location in downtown Charleston and prepare to walk the streets of this historic and haunted city.

Follow your guide down cobbled alleyways and past spooky sites that played a role in Charleston’s past. As you walk, your guide tells obscure stories from Charleston’s early days as a colony, through the Civil War, and up to the present that most history tours skip. Hear about restless souls, paranormal activity, and plans gone awry that make the Holy City one of the most haunted places in the South.

Please note that you do not enter any buildings or graveyards on this tour, and it is not recommend for children 6 and younger.

Great tour!

We took the early tour with a new guide. She did a great job. While walking on Broad St close to St. Michaels Church, three of us looked to the bell tower and saw two Revolutionary soldiers. We thought they were statues until they disappeared....More

Lovely and Informative Evening With Devin

My wife and I took the Macabre Ghost Tour with Devin on a steamy fall evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour highlighted by haunted buildings and graveyards. TIP: Bring/arrive with bug spray as the mosquitos are ever present. Devin led us through a 1-ish mile...More

Great Experience

I took a traditional walking tour when I first arrived in Charleston and this was a great supplement to that. Devin was an amazing guide, great stories that kept the group interested. If possible pick a weekday night otherwise you'll probably run into a lot...More

Great Stories

Devon (unsure if that's the right spelling) was a fantastic tour guide. She was a very good story-teller. I like ghost stories but don't like to be too scared, but this tour was just right for me. Great exercise, too!

It’s fairly easy paced. We hit 4-5 places it literally was a giant circle that we went in around King Street if I remember correctly. Main thing is we went at night, if I hadn’t had the flashlight on my phone on I’m sure me... More
