Here at Ghost City, we take a lot of pride in visiting the MOST HAUNTED locations in Charleston

Here at Ghost City, we like pushing the envelope, offering tourists and locals alike a chance to join our Guides and journey into areas of Charleston which are not always the places where tourists dare to venture. All of the locations we visit on our Ghost Tours are carefully choosen and researched. Telling the true story about our ghosts and hauntings is the backbone of Ghost City. We don't stoop to telling stories about Vampires, Zombies, or other nonsense. However, you will hear the authentic haunted history of Charleston, our locals legends and folklore, and first-hand accounts of hauntings.

Do you need help deciding which Ghost Tour to take?

Visiting with the Family? Choose the THE GHOSTS OF LIBERTY TOUR

The Ghosts of Liberty Tour is appropriate for all ages. You and your family will be guided through the haunted streets of Charleston. You’ll see the historic mansions and hear their haunting stories, stop by the cemeteries and learn of their legends.

This Ghost Tour focuses on the men and women who were Patriots of the United States. Many events happened within Charleston which helped shape our Country. This Tour tells their stories.

Looking to Explore the Sinister Side of Charleston on an Adults-Only Tour? Choose the DEATH AND DEPRAVITY TOUR

The Death and Depravity Tour is Charleston's only Adults Only Ghost Tour. While this is a ghost tour, we cover mature themes and topics, which is why we require all attendees to be at least 16 years of age.

If you've been to Charleston before and taken a different ghost tour, you'll want to choose the Death and Depravity Tour. Not only is this tour unique, but it is an experience that no other company in Charleston can offer.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have some questions about our Charleston Tours - and you don't really want to call. Below you can find the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our tours.

01. Are these Walking Tours?

ALL of our Ghost Tours are Walking Tours

Our Charleston Ghost Tours are walking tours. Here in Charleston, we do not have the other options other cities have, like Hearse Ghost Tours, or even Trollies. If you're taking a ghost tour in Charleston, it is going to be a walking tour.

In order to actually FEEL the energy which our ghosts give off you have to be in the actual places where the haunting takes place. Some areas of the Historic District which we visit can be seriously spooky! We feel that THIS is the best way to explore the paranormally charged streets of Charleston.

  • Walking Tours allow you to immerse yourself in the stories we tell
  • Walking tours are much more friendly to the area - not giving off pollution or waking up the neighborhoods with their speakers
  • Walking is good for you, and it s great way to walk off that amazing dinner you just had!
  • On a walking tour you're not crammed into a vehicle, almost certainly squished in next to someone you'd rather not be squished up against
02. Does Ghost City offer any Groupon tickets, maybe Living Social?

Ghost City has never sold Groupon vouchers - and we never will.

We know that there are many companies in Charleston which offer their tickets for sales on Groupon. And if you're not worried about the quality of the tour you're getting - you can certainly spend some time on Groupon or Living Social and find tickets available. However, you won't see any from Ghost City.

We know that our Ghost Tours are of the highest quality, with thousands of reviews from tourists and locals who have enjoyed our tours. In addition, our tours often sell out - especially on the weekends and on Holidays. There is simply no reason why we'd sell our tours on Groupon.

Companies that sell on Groupon are taking a very substancial cut to their revenue. If their company was as good as they claim it was - they wouldn't have to sell $30 ghost tour tickets for $10 on Groupon. Even if you do not choose Ghost City - do yourself a favor and stay far away from companies who are offering their tours on Groupon.

03. Does Ghost City go into any of the locations on the tours?

Some locations allow us to come in, most don't

When we're touring Charleston, many of the locations that you'll be visiting are private residences. Obviously, they wouldn't be too happy about us simply coming into their homes with our Tour Groups. Therefore we do not go into most of the locations we visit on our tours.

04. Once I purchase tickets, can I get a refund?

All ticket sales are final

Just like any other performance, and yes our Tours are performances, we can only admit a limited number of people. This means that when you purchase your ticket we cannot give you a refund if you decide not to attend.

However, we're not a bunch of unreasonable monsters. If you have an emergency we will work with you. In addition, we also allow our guests to reschedule their tour, as long as you do it at least 24 hours in advance, and the tour you want to reschedule to has availability.

If you do not find the answer to your question listed within our FAQ's, you can always contact us directly at 888-859-5375

Tickets for our tours often sell out

Our Ghost Tours often sell out quickly. Don't wait until the last minute to purchase your tickets. You can purchase them online or by calling us at 888-859-5375.
