Owner description: Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston! Based upon similar beer tours in Europe, we have been featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. The Pub Tour is a fun and unique tour, which includes visits to many historic pubs (some with rooftop views of the city), old taverns frequented by pirates, breweries haunted by ghosts, and a large dose of Charleston's history. Our exclusive Brewery Tours highlight Charleston's local craft beer scene and are a great way to sample a variety of local brews while hearing the fascinating story behind Charleston beer, with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of several local breweries. The Original Pub & Brewery Tours are definitely the most exciting way to experience the city and everything LOCAL! We often sell out quickly so we recommend making reservations in advance. We accommodate groups of all sizes and will customize any group/event tours to your specific needs. Cheers!

The guide for this Pub Tour is humorous and filled with great facts/stories about Charleston and the pubs we visited. The appetizers and drinks were tasty too!

Our tour was on January 1. We met an Irish pub. The tour guide gave a bit of history of the city, but not the pub. Our second location was a local BBQ place, which had some local flavor. The tour guide spoke for about 2 minutes. The third location was a corporate-looking oyster bar with no history to speak of. The last location was a place that we hadn't heard of but cool. The pub tour guide kind off dropped us off there. He didn't say anything to us at all, and we hadn't known when he left.

Maybe our tour guy might have been hung over from NYE -- I don't know. But I do know that I would have expected more information about where we were, why the place was chosen, etc. Three of the four places we visited offered some appetizers, but the 4th did not. Only 2 had any holiday decorations. Granted, it was after Christmas, but this was advertised as a Holiday Pub Crawl.

Quoting the description on the website, we expected to "hear the stories and legends of Charleston’s unique culture and history." We heard some stories for about 5 minutes at one place. We expected to "enjoy complimentary appetizers and holiday treats," We had Irish potatoes at one place, hush puppies at another, and pork rinds at a third. Those weren't exactly holiday treats.

We went to for local pubs each with its own unique setting and story. The appetizers were nice taste of what’s offered at each place but do keep in mind drinks are on you. you do get a discount on certain drinks at each location

We had a great time with our guide Cody and fun group of “new friends”! Sampling appetizers, drinking signature libations and learning about Charleston’s history made our tour memorable. If you want to have a special time while visiting South Carolina’s famous city we strongly recommend going on this fun tour!!

Our Guide Kobi provided fascinating stories of Charleston's history while leading us to five unique pubs in the historical center. We enjoyed meeting others on our friendly tour; the variety of pubs, beverages and appetizers; and exploring Charleston. Highly recommended.
