This Charleston ghost tour is extra scary thanks to a stop at the Provost Dungeon—rumored to be one of the most haunted spots in all of Charleston. Hear the macabre real-life history behind the cellar, and then continue walking down historic streets as your guide shares obscure and spooky tales from Charleston’s past.

We experienced the history and graveyard tour by Adam and he was great, as were the stories and history of Charleston that he shared. We did the VIP tour and totally worth it! The bulldog tours are the only coming allowed into these specific gravesites.
