Lame stores, hardly even any ghost stories told. Should not call this a ghost and haunted tour. I feel like with such vast history as Charleston, old churches and graveyards, this could’ve been very fun and informative. Nothing. Very disappointed. We couldn’t believe that was all we got. Horse was beautiful though. Lol

Don’t Expect To Hear Scary Stories About Ghosts
Anthony_M

We liked being able to see a large area of Charleston in a short time. However, our guide rambled on and not about ghosts. For a town with so much history you would think that ghost stories would be abundant. We exited the carriage thinking “what just happened?” The only impressive thing about the tour was the horses!
