BEST ghost tour in Charleston, SC!!!

Greatest ghost tour ever! Host was great, friendly, very interactive, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour and hope we can do again when we visit Charleston.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
April, this quite possibly might be one of the shortest and to the point reviews we've received. Can't thank you enough for the time you took into writing the BEST title of your review. You are appreciated. Thanks again, perhaps we'll meet again on your next trip.

Great experience. Much better than ghost stories in a graveyard. Nick is very passionate about what he does and does a great job. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cool experience.

Love that you recommend to "anyone" looking for something cool to do. The experience is designed for not just ghost hunters, but history enthusiasts, too. Thanks for pointing that out and for leaving this great review!!

Best Ghost Tour Hands Down!
cz94ccf745
, Jul 2022
This was hands down the best ghost tour I have ever done! Being able to use the real ghost hunting equipment elevates the experience to a whole other level. Nick is the real deal. He keeps the whole group engaged in the experience. In addition to the actual ghost tour Nick provides you with hours of video and audio recordings from your experience the following day along with analysis that may reveal additional creepy details that were missed during the tour. I experienced multiple chill inducing moments during the tour. Do not miss this tour if you are in Charleston!

Thanks so much for leaving this very detailed review and for revealing that we provide all recorded data from your experience. Half the fun of a paranormal investigation is going through the data the next to discover even more!

I enjoyed to hear about the history and able to use the equipment. Had fun even in the rain. The investigator was very interested.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Oh boy, did we have a rainy night! So glad it waited until the end though, otherwise, the investigation would've been cancelled. Let's face it, electronics don't like water. So glad you two had fun experimenting with different equipment. Thanks for leaving this review, you two are appreciated!

Experiencing the Unexpected
Carol_R

The most memorable part of my experience was seen the name Eliza come up on my word finder. Ghosts do exist! Also, I loved finding activity in “empty” parking lots.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
"Empty" indeed. Using spaces that the other ghost "tours" won't visit is paramount to our experience and truly makes us stand out. You never know where you'll discover paranormal activity until you know you're history. And we agree, ghosts do exist. Thanks, Carol for leaving this "unexpected" review.

We didn't hear a lot of ghost activity when we were there but it was so fun for the kids to use the equipment that they have seen on their shows. Good times.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Ghost hunting takes a lot of patience, and well, the ghosts of Charleston are not on the payroll! HA! (I wish they were, I would be way busier and more famous if they were). Thanks for taking the time to leave this review, it is greatly appreciated.

It was really cool to use the equipment and to hear thee backstorues you don't get on the other tours. Nick was awesome!!!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Lorri, thanks for pointing out that we focus on some of the lesser known stories around Charleston. Hunting for ghosts doesn't always include "myths and legends" and we love that you appreciated that about your experience.

We enjoyed out paranormal ghost hunting experience. Nick was a great host. I would recommend this tour for people who are interested in a great paranormal experience.

Even though we can't make the ghosts do anything, we also recommend this for anyone interested in the paranormal. Thanks for the five stars! You are appreciated!

Nick was absolutely amazing! His ability to share the history throughout our adventure was incredible. Using his equipment was a lot of fun and the activity we caught was great! I would recommend him to anyone interested in connecting the history of Charleston along with it's ghosts.

Todd, thanks for pointing out that ghosts are all history, and without the history, looking for ghosts in meaningless. So glad you enjoyed the full experience of tying the two together! Thanks for this absolutely amazing review!

Had a great experience. Heard several Eva’s and learned some new history. It was great using the equipment you see on tv.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Keeping up with the methods and equipment used on television can be a daunting yet rewarding task. Thanks for pointing out to future ghost hunters that we use real equipment to hunt real historical ghosts of Charleston. We are not a myths and legends type of activity. Thanks for taking the time to rate and review your interactive experience, it's appreciated more than you know!

Best interactive ghost tour by far!
Crystal_A
, May 2022
Getting some history while also getting to use some of the equipment was so much cooler then just going on a walking ghost tour with 20+ people. It was limited to just 10 of us and we were able to hear everything and ask all the questions we wanted. Our group is usually pretty chatty and nick was so patient with all of us and would interact with us one on one. If this is something you're interested in whether you're a skeptic or not I highly recommend you take this tour, such a great experience. Only thing I wish is that there were other tour locations he did, because we would definitely do this again!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Love this review! We're pretty sure we're the ONLY interactive tour in Charleston, which makes us the best by default... Lol. As far as other locations, we'll be expanding the current route very soon and who knows what other locations our adventures will take us.... Georgia, Florida, New Orleans???? We'll see... Thanks again for leaving this fantastic review!

Unique experience - a must do in Charleston!
John_O
, May 2022
Our tour with Nicholas was incredibly fascinating. We learned how to use specialized equipment commonly used in the ghost hunting field. He is a great story teller and is great at relaying historical events that took place in the area. We had a small group and managed to record many hours of data with his gadgets for us to investigate. I am looking forward to sitting down and reviewing all the data that we recorded during our experience! I would definitely recommend this as a must in Charleston!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Cannot thank you enough for recommending this experience as a must do! My hope is that each ghost hunter that works with us sees the passion and love we have for working in the paranormal field. Go through that data you recorded! Without a knowledge of the history of an alleged haunting, the evidence is meaningless. Thanks again for taking the time to leave this review, you are appreciated.

Not your typical ghost tour!
Bonilynn_F
, May 2022
I booked this ghost hunt for a mother/daughter weekend! My daughter LOVES ghosts shows and stories. I was looking for something different from the common walking ghost tours. After reading through the reviews and the fact that you get to use actual equipment, Stories In The Cemetery was the one to go with. Nick is very well versed in historical information! One person in our group actually brought her own equipment and Nick was excited with sharing quick suggestions and differences compared to his equipment. He is also up front with what to expect. Some nights are more active than others! Our tour was not a very active night but we did catch a couple orbs and many terms/phrases were caught on the spirit box corresponding to locations that we were exploring. I would definitely suggest booking a ghost hunt with Nick and plan on booking with him again the next time we are in town!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
What a phenomenally long review! WOW. Thanks so much for taking the time to tell others what to expect during this experience. Teaching people on my investigations different methods to their own equipment is my specialty.

Very fun way to spend a night in Charleston! Hands on with real ghost-hunting equipment, and historical facts that enhance the hunt. Nick is very informative and looks out to make sure all the guests have a great time. Highly recommended!

Such a fun way to learn more about the city! Even my two grumpy teens were engaged and enjoyed themselves. We were still talking about it the next morning.

Nick was an excellent story teller regarding the history of the sites we visited. He was informative and patient with the group on using the equipment to hunt for paranormal activity. The group gained some interesting information and all had a great time. Thank you Nick!
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Jeremy, awesome review. Thank you for pointing out that paranormal activity is caught on this experience using real paranormal equipment, and used by the guests, not the guide! Your set of data showed some very interesting happenings and taught me a thing or two that I didn't already know. It's these nights, where I learn something as well, that seem to be the most fun. Thanks again!

Been on literally dozens of “Ghost Hunting” tours, from Salem Massachusetts to San Diego and Long Beach California. This is by far my favorite one ever. Nick does a great job at actually hunting for the truth, looking for the evidence. I will absolutely go with him again next trip through.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
I am humbled by your review, best title ever. I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to write this review, Don. Your extra findings in your investigation data are warranted and I'm so glad you had excellent takeaways from your experience. Looking forward to taking you around our haunted city in the future!
