Yawn….

I think the tour guide may have been new. Her storytelling lacked confidence and she used a lot of words repeatedly like “actually”. She made mistakes along the way, although she would catch herself, it caused us to lose interest. We “actually” ended up departing the tour a little early due to boredom. I’ve been on several tours/ghost tours in Charleston over the years. This was my least favorite. Again, perhaps the content would have been more interesting with an experienced guide.

We are sorry to hear that you didn’t have a 5-star experience with us. We appreciate all feedback, and we assure you we will use this for future tour improvement.

Death and Depravity tour is a winner with Lance
Kathleen_P

Our tour guide Lance played the part perfectly on this Death and Depravity tour. His language matched the content. This tour is not for kids or adults sensitive to colorful language. I’m a docent myself and loved this tour. Just wish I would have seen a ghost!

This is awesome to hear, thank you for letting us know how great your guide Lance was! We hope to see you again soon.

Boring

Most boring tour I have ever experienced. The tour ended in the middle of Charleston and the guide didn’t even help us get back to where we started the tour. Super disappointed
icon Response from Host , Jun. 2022
It’s extremely unfortunate your guide provided you with this type of tour. It is completely unacceptable, and we assure you that is not the standard we set at our company. To make up for this, we would like to offer you free tickets to use in any of our cities, without expiration, in hopes of giving you a much better experience.

Our host, Rachel, was awesome. She had great, funny stories that kept us interested throughout the muggy walk.

If our guide is able to entertain enough to distract from the humidity, that's considered to be a success in our book! Thank you for letting us know about your experience with Rachel.

We had a great time on the ghost tour. Bri was an excellent guide. She had a wealth of knowledge about the various locations we visited and the spirits said to inhabit them. Between a few questionable photographs and some strange noises we’re pretty sure we got our money’s worth. Definitely take this tour.
