Old Charleston Walking Tours is proud to offer an array of narrated walks that cover the most interesting historical issues and sights in a city known for its turbulent past and unusual beauty. Our guides are the best in the business, with years of research and storytelling experience. They promise the kind of accuracy, insight and enthusiasm that create a delightful touring experience. Let them lead you to Charleston's hidden alleys and tell you what went on behind its closed doors.The daytime walks last approximately two hours. The ghost walks are shorter (and scarier).We go rain or shine. There are no hills. The pace is easy. Please join us. You'll be glad you did!

Fun walk, interesting history

Mike was very knowledgeable about the local history and you can tell he is very passionate about the local mysteries. We had a good time and return for another tour.

The places we saw and stories we heard we entertaining, but unfortunately the guide wasn't a very captivating story teller and was kind of monotonous.... It wasn't a bad tour, just didn't keep my attention. Sometimes you just don't click with people!

I've never done a Ghost Walk before but when I saw they were dog-friendly, I had to try it. Mike Brown did a terrific job and is a compelling speaker.

We normally do a Ghost Walk in every new town we stay at. Pleasing Terrors did not disappoint! Mike Brown did a great job backing up local legend with his own research

My wife and I spent a couple of days between Christmas and New Year's Eve in Charleston (first time). We had toured on our own, but decided to book a guided tour in addition, it was well worth it. The group was just us and another couple, very pleasant. Our guide Dennis presented a great mix of very interesting and... More
