Otherwise lacking in articulation, this reviewer needs to double-check the actual company he went with. We only conducted tours for the month of December on 12/2, 12/17, and 12/27-30 (so a total of 6 nights for the entire month as it is the off-season) and...More

Booked this tour with high hopes of hearing some spooky ghost stories from Charleston's rich history. Instead our guide smelled very strongly of alcohol and tried to be more of a comedian (not funny) than a story teller. His phone was dead the whole time...More
