With just two tour times available, this special after-hours tour to one of Charleston’s oldest cemeteries sells out fast. Book online ahead of time to make sure you don’t miss out on this spooky, one-of-a-kind activity. Leave nighttime navigation to your guide, a Charleston local, who will tell you true, scary stories along the way. If you’re lucky, you might even spot paranormal activity yourself.
What to Expect
This ghost-and-graveyard tour meets in a central Charleston location. Your guide will lead your group on foot to Charleston’s oldest cemetery for special after-hours access.

At the graveyard, hear stories of local legends such as Sue Howard, who’s been known to haunt her child’s grave—your guide even has a photo to show you. You’ll hear other stories to make your skin crawl, including a tale about people being buried alive in the very spot you’re standing. You’ll even hear a few lesser-known stories about voodoo in Charleston.

The nighttime darkness adds to the creepy ambiance, and it’s recommended you bring a pocket flashlight with you if you’re easily scared.

Both tour times end early enough, so you can continue on to enjoy the city’s nightlife on your own.

Scary informative tour

We visited graveyards and churches where there were ghost sightings and pictures taken from previous tours and shared with the group. Quite creepy. Your wife/girlfriend will likely snuggle with you to feel safe.

Not Quite a Believer, but Fun Nonetheless!

Our tour guide, Adam, showed such enthusiasm for the city and its spooky past. His storytelling ability, plus the dark of night (did the 9:30pm tour time) really provided a scary environment to hear ghost stories. However, similar to another review I saw below, do...More
