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.

The stories were interesting however we might’ve expected a bit more as far as walking through cemeteries and ghost sightings.

One of the most boring ghost tours we've done. The guide was ok but he had to draw out the tour by rattling on and on about each place a d drawing out a story to the point of complete boredom. We could have gone to twice as many sites with precise stories. This tour should have lasted about 35 minutes not 90!

Rhett was by far one of the best ghost tour guides we have ever had. He spoke with such skill and he really draws you into the stories he’s sharing. His knowledge of Charleston and the history of the city was truly amazing. I have personally been on several ghost tours in Charleston and have never had such a great experience before. I highly recommend this tour, especially if Rhett is your guide!

This tour was amazing! Simon was our guide, and he MADE the tour. He told us 5 ghost stories based on stories from the book The Ghosts of Charleston by Julian T. Buxton III. We stopped at the Powder Magazine, in front of St. Philips Church, down Philadelphia Alley, and then had exclusive access to the Unitarian Church graveyard at night. We did the 9:30pm tour on a Thursday night and there were 13 people in our group. Simon told us to take lots of pictures and helped us to know what we were looking for in those pics to see signs of light that were "not manmade light". Simon was a captivating historical storyteller and I highly recommend this tour!
