On to the civil war, Charleston is the birthplace of Secession. Such a complex war, that even decades later, people are still trying to understand it all.

We are often asked what makes the CHILLING CHARLESTON ghost tour better than the rest? We feel we offer something some of the other companies do not and that is experience and belief. All guides are licensed tour guides with the City of Charleston. The stories that are told on the tours are of actual events in Charleston. We want you to be able to go home and research the stories that pique your interest. I started offering ghost tours in 2001, and have found that one of the biggest complaints for a night tour is not enough meat and too much “Yeah there is a ghost here”. We paint you a picture with our words and strive to make you feel as if you are reliving the tragedy that unfolded here. All of our guides do believe in the afterlife and that there are lost souls roaming the streets of Charleston. Whether you believe in the paranormal or not, you will be fascinated with the details of past events in our city. I can promise you that even if you don’t believe, you will at least be intrigued and have a nice chuckle. You might just have a nightmare or too as well! Our tours are not a haunted houses, no one jumps out to scare you. But we do dive into the gore, the horror, that is our history. I hope that you join us for one of our Macabre Ghost Tours and visit Charleston in a different light!
