Old Charleston Walking Tours is proud to offer an array of narrated walks that cover the most interesting historical issues and sights in a city known for its turbulent past and unusual beauty. Our guides are the best in the business, with years of research and storytelling experience. They promise the kind of accuracy, insight and enthusiasm that create a delightful touring experience. Let them lead you to Charleston's hidden alleys and tell you what went on behind its closed doors.The daytime walks last approximately two hours. The ghost walks are shorter (and scarier).We go rain or shine. There are no hills. The pace is easy. Please join us. You'll be glad you did!

Probably one of my favorite things we did while in Charleston. Great history stories! I would suggest taking a carriage ride as well if you love history!

Our tour guide was spectacular! Seriously hair raising stories. He was an excellent story teller. You could tell he wasn't just a tour guide hired to tell stories. Ghost stories were his thing! Super knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

My husband and I were in Charleston last weekend and had a tour hosted by Mike Brown. His stories combined both historical and spooky events and was very well done! He also hosts a cool podcast; highly recommend!
