    Ghost tour was a fun way to explore the history of a fascinating site, but the bogus ghost hunting was a bit exhausting. Went at night; I imagine that's the only time it's worth it.

    Though I still don't believe in ghosts, the tour guide is good at what he does. Great storyteller and a fun way to get a download of gruesome history. Would not recommend bringing children under 10.

    We didn't seen any ghosts on our #JailTour, but Sean was a very knowledgeable guide. Kinda overpriced for what it was though. Most of the building is in such disrepair that you can't even tour it.

    A fun night in Charleston, SC. The ghost tour / jail tour is fun and creepy in a paranormal way. It was very informative and a learning experience! Saw no ghosts, but heard some interesting sounds.

    I was expecting more paranormal story telling then historical especially at night but it was very informative. I believe this is what most people come for.

    Tour was good, and the history was interesting but if I would have paid for this tour (we had a free voucher) I would have been disappointed.

    This dark building began as the old Charleston jail in 1802 and functioned as a city jail until 1939. Watch this video for more info in this C-SPAN AHTV video. Read more

    Believed by many to be the most haunted building in Charleston!

    I wasn't impressed with the haunted jail tour at night. The building is HOT and it is too dark to see anything. Although there really isn't anything to see - just empty rooms.
