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.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

So boring it’s fun

This tour overall was fabulous. The guide knows his stuff and is very passionate about the ghost stories and related history. The tour stops for long periods of time in various places and during so the oral presentations are verrrrrry long. During these times it’s a bit boring. This tour is more of a history tour than a ghost tour. I was very excited about the cemetery access and because the tour went so long in the other spots we entered the cemetery when the tour was supposed to be over. 10 minutes into the guide’s next presentation we had to leave due to reservations. Be sure to plan for a 2 or so hour tour vs an hour and a half. If you want a straight ghost tour, the tour through the jail would be better suited.

Greg is the man. He’s funny, engaging, and honest. There’s no hokey push to make you think you saw something. Just authentic, heartbreaking, and genuinely creepy stories of hauntings, their causes, and evidence. Greg made a 90 minute tour seem like 5 minutes. Be sure to get the “Ghosts of Charleston” book, I read it in one day. And I’m a slow reader.

Our tour guide Greg was very knowledgeable in Charleston history!! We have taken several carriage tours which are full of historical facts , but Greg managed to teach us a few more. This ghost tour was very Interesting to say the least!! It is the ONLY ghost tour in Charleston where groups are allowed access to the Unitarian Cemetery. Our kids have some photographs that have unexplained shrouded and ghostly images from that cemetery that cannot be explained.
