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.

I am so sorry you were unhappy with people who were on your tour. It is not as easy as you may think to separate people from other people because they are unaccepting of them. Sometimes, you just have to accept the fact that some...More

Is there less than one star? If so, they earned it.

My friend and I were so excited to do this tour and were so disappointed. From start to finish, it was a complete bore. The guide basically told long, drawn out ghost stories and showed up pictures where the ghosts were pretty much unrecognizable. I...More

Ghosts & Graveyard Stories

We had no idea what to expect from this tour but ended up having a great time. Our group was a lot of fun and our guide was entertaining and informative. The history and the stories were way more interesting than a ghost story or...More

Started slow, but turned out ok

We really didn't enjoy this too much. Our guide was nice and seemed to know a lot, but it was more of a history lesson than anything else. Once we visited the graveyard, it got more interesting. I am a believer, but it really wasn't...More

18 Anson St. You check in and it starts there. You'll wait on the front porch until they call your group.
