The Charleston Ghost and Graveyard Tour gives you an exclusive opportunity to walk inside the gates of one of Charleston’s oldest graveyards after dark. When all the other walking tours are looking in through the wrought iron fence, you’ll be on the inside. Explore the graveyard’s dark corners, closely inspect the headstones to see what you might learn, and take a moment to step across the graves…if you dare.
Learn about the history of Charleston’s graveyards, and hear the stories of the famous individuals who found their final resting place in the Holy City. You’ve heard the spooky Charleston ghost stories, right? Well, now you can experience them on this up-close-and-personal tour that takes you where others won’t. Graveyards are endearing pockets of Charleston – so much so that they are often referred to here as simply “gardens.” We love them – they’re full of history, intrigue, and tales of love and loss.

“This tour was awesome. We had Glen as our tour guide, and the amount of historical knowledge he had was incredible. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a thrilling and informative experience!”
“I have a picture of a ghost that is clear as day from the 3rd story window that can not be accessed from inside the building because there is no floor and can not be accessed from outside in the middle of the night when a tour is going on. Never saw a thing, no heavy feelings, no cold areas, nothing, until we were looking back at the pictures a week later. It is a male who looks to be dressed in a civil war hat. My husband is a very skeptical person. And he could not deny what is shown in the photo. We have done a few tours and this by far was the most interesting and with results!”
“Suzie Q was our guide. We did the after hours tour where you do your own investigation. We had several ghostly experiences including one that had us run down from the third floor to the 1st. Even after that, we stayed another hour and had more experiences too!”
“Had such a great experience. Larry is a great guide, very interesting and fun to listen to. The tour was cool, taking us through some beautiful and creepy areas. Felt lots of unwelcoming vibes and cold spots along the way. So much fun!”
“The Old Jail in Charleston really does contain an energy of its own. Our tour guide Braxton was informative and engaging. He was also very considerate of those who may have been scared and made sure everyone was well. If you really want to come face-to-face with a troubled ghost, bring your camera and visit here.”
“Attended an after dark tour of the Old Charleston Jail 7/5/18- an unforgettable experience. Sean was a great guide, and Jason was wonderful too. Found several orbs in photographs and my family member reported hearing clanking and far off conversations from behind her.”
“The tour was excellent! Everything you would expect from a scary tour. Our guide Adam was well spoken, informed and went at a comfortable pace to meet everyone’s needs! Highly recommended experience when visiting Charleston!”
“This is the 3rd ghost tour I've done in Charleston and it was one of the best. I had some tactile experiences including something touching my hand, breathing in my face and on my arm. Randy was very knowledgeable and a great guide!”
