My two boys and I went on this tour expecting something similar to our other haunted city tours that we've taken in Key West and Boston. However, what we got was so much more. Geordie the tour guide (and company owner) took us on an educational, spooky and entertaining evening to places in Charleston we would have never thought to go. His knowledge of the city's history added so much character to the tour, keeping it interesting and scary all at the same time. My boys didn't want it to end. Thanks for a great night and a walk through history we won't soon forget.

Our guide, Geordy, was very informative in a casual and sometimes humorous way. I love the idea of the "ghost" stories, but wanted to go on the tour for the history as well. I learned so many interesting facts from the tour. Would love to use this tour company to go on a tour in a different part of the city.

The guide was knowledgeable. The tour included some interesting historical data. One of the 'guests' on the tour was obnoxious, frequently interrupting the guide and trying to impress everyone with her knowledge and 'psychic ability' . She also kept us waiting, when while on a 'bathroom' stop, she made a trip to the hotel bar for a shot of tequila (no not kidding). We hung around until she came back, even more annoying. Visiting the graveyard at night was fun, as well as the ghost and historical knowledge relayed by the guide, but the bad behavior of one of the participants took away from the overall experience,

From Our Editors

Walks in History's founder, Geordie Buxton, has not only lived in the Charleston area his whole life, but also has written books about his favorite city. In other words, he's an ideal tour guide.

During one- or two-hour Walks In History tours, Geordie tells tales of Charleston's past while leading groups around the French Quarter. Stops include such historic sites as the final resting place of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution, the Old Slave Mart slave jail, and St. Michael's Church, where President George Washington and Marquis de Lafayette worshipped. Tours also showcase the Pink House, a Chalmers Street icon that was built in the mid 1690s and served as a tavern where sailors could get their three Ws—whiskey, wenches, and WiFi.

Though Geordie leads most Walks In History tours, other seasoned guides may lead them during the busy summer season.
