The trip stated we would go to bars, and have food. The first bar we were provided a potato nachos. We went to one other bar, and no food. Bryan was very knowledgeable about the area.

David and Ronda, I am editing my response in light of our conversation in hopes of enlightening future guests who may read the review. The tour group that evening was awesome, in fact all the other reviews that night were perfect. It seemed y’all had a wonderful time that evening as well which is why this was so confusing. You state that I was knowledgeable of the area which I certainly appreciate but 1 star , my first in 9 years of operating ? I do also appreciate you actually having the courage to have a conversation with me but in our conversation you just could not accept the fact that you booked a ghost and bar tour and not a food tour. To quote “ we wish you had more local food to the area.” I’m sorry Ronda, then book a culinary tour lmao! This tour ran as described: two bars, one small snack, and a lot of ghostly stops in between. It is fair to rate me based on what I advertise which is why this review makes no sense. The snack is merely a goodwill gesture I provide for guests who just get in town and don’t have an opportunity to eat before what is a nighttime tour. The bar stops are to open up the engagement between myself and my guests instead of just a random guide talking for two hours hours. My tour groups have more chances for an in depth conversation with myself as the local guide over some nice beverages. I hope future guests read the description and understand those expectation will be met and often exceeded, I stuck around 30 minutes that night assisting another group with some questions and where their next bar stop should be. At the risk of sounding harsh if you are too stupid to read the description and blame me for it then I guess this stupid review makes just a little more sense. I love what I do which is why I left the corporate world and I get that not everyone is going to love my tour or me, and that is ok. But to fault a ghost tour over some preconceived notion this was a culinary tour is just asinine, and I will defend the business I have worked so hard to create. Sincerely, capt Bryan

Our guide, Bryan was amazing! He was organized, informative and entertaining. Our tour was 8 of my girlfriends who wanted to hear some spooky history of Charleston. Bryan did not disappoint! The tour flowed nicely and he made sure he was able to answer all our questions as well. We met at an Irish pub where we got to know a little bit about Bryan and we introduced ourselves. We had time for a cocktail & a quick appetizer but we never felt rushed. He then took us on a haunted walking tour filled with ghost stories that have been a part of Charleston history for years. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys haunted history! It was a highlight of our trip!!

Not a bar tour
Jenny_L

Captain Bryan was friendly and knowledgeable but the tour wasn’t great. Not a pub crawl…only went to two. He also spoke too much and too long. You never had time to ask questions or make comments. Found ourselves standing in empty parking lots the majority of the time. We expected a more interactive tour like others we have been on in other cities.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Jenny. I appreciate some of the kind words in your review and I am very open to criticism also when it’s due. Why I’m a little upset is that there are a couple misconceptions you present and probably why I received 3 stars I need to clear up. This tour is advertised as going to two bars. It is in the description and the itinerary. To fault me for not going to more than two bars really doesn’t make sense when that’s what is advertised. For future guests the reason why we go to two bars is because we also focus on ghost lore and stories at several haunted sites along the route so we can get both in equal measure. This leads us to the second very inaccurate thing mentioned that we stand a majority of the time in parking lots. That is most certainly not true and to say otherwise is disingenuous. We stand and talk in one parking lot and one only which is overlooking the graveyard of the circular church. We could reach over and touch the gravestones we were so close. Not one other site on this tour involves standing in a parking lot. Remember the two historic alleyways lodge and Philadelphia? The st Philips graveyards and cemetery we stand beside ? Washington square park ? I really want future guests to know that is not how I operate nor would I want to go on a tour where we stand in parking lots the whole time. It is perplexing that you included that in your review and while I can stomach some personal criticism an outright lie about my tour is unacceptable and the reason I am asking viator to remove this review. Fair complaints about my style or stories are valid , but please don’t confuse future guests about things that are either clearly in my tour description or just an outright falsehood. I will be mindful of taking more time to answer questions for future groups as you suggest but really want folks to know that yes we go to two bars as per my description and also that we do NOT stand in parking lots the whole time lol. Jenny some personal advise since I cannot review you, don’t lie about tours and make sure to read the description before you sign up - capt b

Interesting Ghost tour with hair raising stories!

Brandon did a great job of bringing the ghost stories to life! He was so knowledgeable, passionate and detailed on his storytelling. We started at Tommy Condon’s Irish Pub and it was a nice comfortable way to get started. Sometimes being on your feet for two hours straight can be very tiring at the end of the day so it was nice to have that beginning time to just sit, relax and enjoy a drink/appetizer while listening to his personal experiences! You can tell he really cares about what he does and making the experience memorable for you! Thank you again Brandon!

What a great tour! My husband and I booked this for our one year anniversary trip and were so extremely pleased. Caption Brian was an amazing tour guide. He was knowledgeable about the history of the town but also threw in some comedy, making the evening better then what we could have ever hoped for! 10/10 would recommend this to anyone looking to have a great time in Charleston!

Captain Bryan is amazing not only at storytelling but the history and true accuracy of the information he provided was truly impressive! He takes his research very seriously and you can tell by the sheer magnitude of knowledge he provided. He even went the extra mile and got us some other history my daughter was seeking . This has been my 3rd tour and will definitely not be my last even though I am now a resident of the area. Perfect outing when you have guests who would like to know a bit of the hidden history of beautiful downtown Charleston.
