Description:

Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston!...

Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston! Based upon similar beer tours in Europe, we have been featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. The Pub Tour is a fun and unique tour, which includes visits to many historic pubs (some with rooftop views of the city), old taverns frequented by pirates, breweries haunted by ghosts, and a large dose of Charleston's history.

Our exclusive Brewery Tours highlight Charleston's local craft beer scene and are a great way to sample a variety of local brews while hearing the fascinating story behind Charleston beer, with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of several local breweries. The Original Pub & Brewery Tours are definitely the most exciting way to experience the city and everything LOCAL! We often sell out quickly so we recommend making reservations in advance. We accommodate groups of all sizes and will customize any group/event tours to your specific needs. Cheers!

This was such a fun night! We went to 4 different pubs where appetizers were served. My husband and I were with an extremely rowdy group - a family trip with all guys that were loud, funny, and boisterous. At times they made it hard for the tour guide to talk and tell stories, but we still had fun and... More

My fiance and I took the pub tour on New Year's Day evening. We met the tour guide (and owner) Daniel and he took us 4 four pubs/bars. The tour was a blast. It was incredibly informative, as he know so much about not just the bars, but the history of prohibition, pirates, and the whole city. We learned more... More

On New Year's Eve we met at Tommy Condons to start our historic holiday pub tour at 7:00 pm. The tour was scheduled to go until 9:30 pm and visit 3-4 historic pubs. At least one type of appetizer was provided at each of the pubs as part of the fee and participants paid for their own drinks. Our tour... More

My husband and I had an excellent time at the Original Pub and Brewery Tour of Charleston.

We loved our Pub tour on December 29, 2016, enjoying unique pubs we may not have visited. Noah, our guide, was great! He shared history tidbits, unique stories and his experiences. Our family enjoyed his laid back style, and it was nice to spend time with our new Charleston friend. We toured with 2 families originally from Chicago, who were... More

Overall, the tour was great. We weren't crazy about the first bar/meeting spot and thought it didn't set a good tone for the tour. However, the next three bars were unique and ones that we wouldn't be able to find on our own. The tour guide also provided a lot of interesting and fun history.

Our tour guide Brian was good and gave us some history of Charleston, but nothing to about the pubs we visited. The price for the tour is toooo much, the apps you got hush-puppies, nachos not even a discounted drink are you kidding me. The tour is bring folks into the pubs, you would think that the pub would be... More

We had a fabulous time!!! The tour guide was great and answered questions. The only disappointment was that we had apps at only 2 bars. It was good to meet new friends and go to the different bars. The price was a bit high since we only got apps at 2 places and had a buy our own drinks. I... More
