Pirate and Haunted History [tours](http://walksinhistory.com/pirate) are roughly 90 minutes long and one mile in distance, and run every day of the week except Tuesday. Guests meet in front of the East Bay Executive Center at 174 East Bay Street. Guides lead guests past historical sights that include old walled-city bastions, a pre–Revolutionary War graveyard, and the hideaways of fearsome pirates such as Blackbeard, “Gentleman Pirate” Stede Bonnet, and Bartholomew Roberts.

Walks in History

At Walks in History, 1-mile tours are based on stories from the books Haunted Charleston and Haunted Harbor by authors Geordie Buxton and Ed Macy. The 90-minute Pirate and Haunted History tour tracks the fading footsteps of Blackbeard, Stede Bonnet, Anne Bonney, and Mary Read through the cobblestone streets and bastion walls of the Old Walled City. Making pit stops at six to eight haunts, the guides unravel tales regarding pirate hangings, Fort Sumter and the Pink House, where Blackbeard once shot rum and drunk dialed former first mates.

The 90-minute Supernatural Charleston Ghost Tour ventures into the murky twilight like a darkness-starved vampire bat after the summer solstice. As the expert guides snake through six to eight stops, they shed light on ghostly activity at sites such as the Old Citadel, a Revolutionary War burial ground, and the remains of the Charleston Orphan Asylum.
