This would have had to be one of the most scariest thing I have done. This is great for people who love scary things. Right when I walked in the jail I felt itchy and loss of breath and just felt heavy. An amazing experience

Just as with my first Ghost and Graveyard Walking tour with Bulldog Tours a few years ago, the tour of the Old Charleston Jail was very thought-provoking. Eric Lavender was a super guide - knowledgeable and attentive. The history of this landmark is gruesome and visiting on a cold, rainy night only added to the experience. Priced right and a perfect length. Can't wait for my next visit to Charleston and my next tour with Bulldog Tours.

As soon as I entered the jail I felt tremors, which is completely normal in any old city for me but Downstairs just before the exit I experienced a full force from a lot of entities in one room. They really are there. This place is genuinely haunted.

Best Scare Ever!
