This was a fun and entertaining tour. The guide did a great job of weaving the stories of each site together so that you could understand the time lines and get a feel for the times. The predominate theme was around the overabundant brothels. I would have liked a few more stories on other topics, but maybe brothels were the darkest side of Charleston's in the early days.

What You'll Get

Your tour begins at 8pm when you meet your guide on Anson Street, who over the course of 90 minutes, will take you on an uncensored journey of Charleston's sordid past. Hear the tales of brothels, corruption, prostitutes, scandals, and crime, and learn the city's darker secrets that other tours leave out.

While pastel-colored homes, sunshine, and southern hospitality reign supreme in the coastal city, it isn't always champagne and mimosas down here on the Charleston streets. From centuries ago to the present day, Charleston has been a place where high society is riddled with scandal, temptation, sin, and truly unruly behavior. 

Whether it’s a fascinating story about a legendary brothel, or a look back at ancient forms of punishment, find out what really went on in the streets in the "Holy City" of Charleston. Did Charleston have a red-light district? Why did prostitutes wear red shoes? Your licensed and experienced tour guides will answer these questions throughout the tour, and there really isn't any other Charleston walking tour like it.
