Pirate & Ghost Tour

With more than 300 years of history including the Colonial Period, the Revolution and the Civil War, Charleston has a vast collection of true pirate stories, ghost tales based on historic events, and fascinating legends of Gullah lore. Dressed in period apparel, Eric and Sabrina, lead you on an adventure through one of the country's most haunted cities. With a little bit of pirate lore combined with ghost and Gullah legends, this tour will, in turn, scare you, touch you, and even make you laugh.

Daytime Ghost & History Tour

Some of Charleston’s most fascinating ghost stories are in areas that organized tours cannot go at night, so we offer you the chance to see these spooky sites during a daytime tour. Duels, unrequited love, wars, and natural disasters have left us with more than our fair share of specters! Many of them roam the quiet streets in the city’s most picturesque neighborhoods, and that’s exactly where this tour goes. Along the way, we'll also share some interesting Charleston history tidbits.
