Did the 3pm haunted pub tour - our guide was awesome, so knowledgeable and fantastic at telling the stories. Would highly recommend this tour. We also did the 7:45 11/13 vip tour.

Great experience! Enjoyed the haunted pub crawl, every place we went had a great story and good drinks. Our tour guide went above and beyond, really felt like we were hanging out with a friend.

Jeremiah - Google Reviews

We booked the Haunted Pub Crawl tour for our company holiday party and we absolutely loved it! Our guide (Adam) captivated us with spooky stories of Charleston’s most notorious hauntings that even scared the skeptics in our group. Since it was a private tour, Adam really tailored it to our group. Bulldog Tours was also very accommodating when booking. Overall, this was a fantastic way to learn some history while indulging in some of the finest food and drink in Charleston!

Frequently Asked Questions


  • What do the Tour Activity Levels mean?

    • EASY – Walking tours are designed for a leisurely pace but may include uneven sidewalks, some stairs and a combination of walking and standing for up to two hours.
    • MODERATE – Tours will include a more active pace at times including stairs and uneven terrain. Expect to be on your feet for the duration of the tour covering a minimum of a mile and half of the area.
    • ACTIVE – A high physical activity level is required to walk and climb narrow stairs. This tour is not recommended for guests who require canes or walkers.

  • Do I have to purchase tickets in advance?

    Advanced purchase is strongly recommended, as tours often sell out well in advance. To maximize your chances of getting the day and time you prefer, please book well in advance.

  • What if it rains?

    Tours will go on rain or shine. If there is a hurricane in Charleston at the time of the tour, there is no need to show up. We will be busy boarding up windows or throwing a Hurricane Party. (Seriously though, we run in every kind of weather.)

  • Is the tour wheelchair- and/or stroller-accessible?

    Our downtown tours are wheelchair and stroller accessible, but it is advised that all guests take caution navigating the uneven terrain of Charleston.

  • How many stops?

    Guests will make several stops throughout their trip to hear ghost stories, legends and facts about respective sites. Each tour guide’s route is unique, and will feature a number of stops depending on factors such as their route, the weather, and even your questions!

  • How much walking? Is it a fast paced tour?

    Our ghost tours are about 1-1.5 miles in distance, which may vary. We seek to provide you with plenty of stories and legends while keeping a comfortable pace with guests.

  • Do I need a flashlight?

    Your tour guide is equipped with a flashlight to guide the way as well as to gesture and gather attention to objects relevant to their stories.

  • Is the tour scary?

    Different things scare different people. However, these tours are primarily story-based experiences. Nothing should jump out in front of you, and if it does, we recommend you run!

  • Is it appropriate for kids?

    We feel that all of our ghost tours are appropriate for kids with the exception of the Haunted Jail tour which is offered for ages 12 and up.

  • Do we go through a graveyard?

    This tour does not, but our Charleston Ghost and Graveyard Tour, Magnolia Cemetery Tour and VIP Ghost Package feature exclusive visits inside of historic graveyards.

  • What if I am hard of hearing?

    Our professional guides are skilled public speakers and work hard to make sure everyone can hear during the tour. If you are hard of hearing, please let your guide know and we’ll ensure you get a front-row seat.

  • Is parking available?

    For Downtown Tours:
    There are a few precious metered parking spaces throughout the Historic District, though they require constant feeding. For our 10 pm tours, meter parking is free. Otherwise, we recommend parking in a paid lot, parking at the Visitors Center and riding the Downtown Area Shuttle (DASH), or parking in one of the garages around The City Market. Here are some suggestions:


    Charleston Parking
    51 PINCKNEY STREET CHARLESTON, SC 29401

    Cumberland Street Garage
    82 CUMBERLAND STREET CHARLESTON, SC 29401

    Concord/Cumberland Parking Garage
    1 CUMBERLAND STREET CHARLESTON, SC 29401

  • What if I need to cancel or change my booking?

    You can cancel up to 24 hours in advance for a FULL refund. If you need to change or modify your tickets, simply call us at 843-722-TOUR (8687). We offer trip protection which ensures a refund within the 24 hours prior to the tour if you need to cancel.

  • What if I am unhappy with the tour?

    Our #1 priority at Bulldog Tours is giving great tours. If you don't have a great experience, let us know and we promise to make it right with a full refund or voucher for a future visit.

  • Are bathrooms available during the tour?

    Restrooms are available at our office where the tour begins. Although there may be restrooms available along the tour route, we encourage guests to use the restroom before starting a tour because our guides will not interrupt the tour for bathroom stops.

  • Are tours offered only in English?

    Yes, we only offer tours in English at this time. Please email or call us if you would like to make arrangements for your own interpreter to join the tour.

  • Should I tip my Bulldog tour guide?

    If you feel your tour guide has provided a great experience, gratuities are encouraged— and welcomed—at the end of your tour. We believe that recognizing excellent service is a personal matter, though 15-20% of your booking fee is a good rule of thumb. Gratuities for your guide are always appreciated, but never expected.

  • What if I still have questions?

    We’re here to help! Simply call us at 843-722-TOUR (8687) if you have any additional questions or concerns.
