Full description

"There is only one essential ingredient in a ghost story: death." So say Charlestonians Ed Macy and Geordie Buxton in their introduction to their book about the haunted streets of Charleston. By rambling through the oft-forgotten enclaves of the Holy City, the paranormal authors bring guests face to face with a group of orphans who haunt a dorm of a Charleston College, a Citadel cadet who haunts a local hotel, and an angelic spirit in a Freedman Methodist graveyard, to name just a few. We will hear tales of a bookstore phantom, notorious for rearranging books in perfect vertical stacks, and a gruesome 19th-century amputation taking place in a medical student’s apartment. This tour is not for the faint-hearted! Based on historical events and specific details that are often lost in our general notion of ghosts, each haunting encounter will send chills down your spine.

    Tour guide was AMAZING! I believe his name was Jordy, he was funny and personable, and very informed on the topic at hand! I’m a skeptic when it comes to ghosts and ghost stories but I genuinely love learning about it, and having someone that can give facts and examples helps me to believe it’s all possible!! He even brought science in to the stories which helps because I’m a nurse and believe in the science!!! Great tour and absolutely worth the time and money!!

    Geordie was a fabulous guide. He really brought the city to life for us and was very entertaining. If you are looking for actual sighting events, you are not likely to see it on this tour. But, you will feel creeped out by what has previously happened in the city. A great tour for adults.

    Geordie (sp) was amazing. his tour was not only informational but very entertaining as well. the tour guide had a great rapport with the guests and had an amazing array of facts. we left very impressed and also found out that the hotel we were staying at was the most haunted hotel, embassy suites downtown, in all of Charleston.
