Fun haunted tour on the streets of Charleston

This was a fun tour we took on Friday 13th at 6:30. Our tour guide was charming and funny. We learned about the horses and the great care they are given, but the fun part was hearing about all the ghost that have been seen in Charleston. It was very historically scary!

Great tour after a hot day. Both Madison and Wayne (horse) did a great job navigating the city and telling ghost stories. She recommended a few place to check out during this tour so yea, highly recommend if you’re visiting Charleston.

Informative and Entertaining

The driver was very informative and entertaining. He spoke rather quickly so it was difficult to understand everything he was saying. The ride was about 45 minutes and in my opinion overpriced for the short ride. Everyone at the stables were friendly and it appeared that the horses were well taken care of.

The most eerie was the number of experiences our guide had had with spirits. Our trip was early evening, so too light to see any. Our guide was terrific. Very personable, very enthusiastic.

Good introduction to Charleston’s sites

The evening sites were memorable and Prince the horse was the star of the show. The haunted experience was a bit light in content. A few too many wife bashing comments for my taste.
