It’s a bar crawl, history walk, and paranormal experience with a tarot reading for dessert. Charleston is home of the supernatural, paranormal, and existential: 350 years of graveyards, ghosts, and ghouls in a drinking town with a history problem. Starting at one of Charleston's most notorious watering holes, an upscale dive, we begin our experience at the bar. Listen to ghost stories and tales of Charleston’s darker side while enjoying your favorite beverage. From the bar, we walk to a graveyard. Learn how to see a ghost, and along the way, you may even answer the questions, "Are we alone?," and "Why are we here?" From the graveyard, we walk to another bar. We finish the evening with more history and ghost stories and a tarot reading.

My family went on this tour and loved all the extras we got from the guide being such a positive eccentric human being. And the little sayings he’d add in that stick in our brains. Would definitely recommend this tour. Have fun in Charleston!

Appreciated the small group atmosphere. Was looking for more Charleston Supernatural History. Graveyards were temporarily closed so we were unable to enter to get the full experience. Not for us.
