With just two tour times available, this special after-hours tour to one of Charleston’s oldest cemeteries sells out fast. Book online ahead of time to make sure you don’t miss out on this spooky, one-of-a-kind activity. Leave nighttime navigation to your guide, a Charleston local, who will tell you true, scary stories along the way. If you’re lucky, you might even spot paranormal activity yourself.
What to Expect
This ghost-and-graveyard tour meets in a central Charleston location. Your guide will lead your group on foot to Charleston’s oldest cemetery for special after-hours access.

At the graveyard, hear stories of local legends such as Sue Howard, who’s been known to haunt her child’s grave—your guide even has a photo to show you. You’ll hear other stories to make your skin crawl, including a tale about people being buried alive in the very spot you’re standing. You’ll even hear a few lesser-known stories about voodoo in Charleston.

The nighttime darkness adds to the creepy ambiance, and it’s recommended you bring a pocket flashlight with you if you’re easily scared.

Both tour times end early enough, so you can continue on to enjoy the city’s nightlife on your own.

We had an awesome tour with my family and David C.! Members of our group even captured evidence of the afterlife,including a VERY powerful voice recording! If you want to hear it you'll have visit Dave in Charleston! Thanks again Dave!

Thank you for your review. We are sorry you weren't happy. You didn't hear any ghost stories? Many people that take the tours are interested in the supernatural. I think most guides try to talk about the supernatural and about ghost stories. We are sorry...More

Our Bulldog tour guide, David C., was great. He was witty and knowledgeable. The tour wasn’t scary, but factual and did give good insight into some of Charleston’s history and legends. The graveyard walkthrough was the best part. It may be a bit creepy, if...More
