Excellent and frightening at the same time! I felt someone blowing down the back of my neck several times and it wasn't my husband... 😉

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.

Thrilling Experience!

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!

It was good tour. I was standing by a closed door when I got the feeling that something grabbed my ankle very hard. I was wearing boots!

The scariest thing I have ever done

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

Lisa was a good tour guide. Wish we could have visited during daytime hours hard to see at night. Really enjoyed the jail tour
