Could've Been Fun

This tour really deserves fewer than the four stars I gave it, but my disappointment is with some of the other guests, not the guide, who did his best to get the tour back on the rails. Note to the drunken jerk on the tour: you're not as "fun" as you think you are.

More debauchery, please!

The Host was very informative and apologetic for some possibly lowbrow humor. While I loved the stories shared, I was expecting more scandal! More debauchery! More of everything that might offend others! This tour inspired me to research some of the people mentioned and the continued histories were awesome! I would change the name of this tour to "Slightly Shady Side of Charleston" until you up the smut factor!

Autumn was a fantastic story teller! She kept us engaged and entertained the whole time. My favorite story was at the end about the sailor and first woman serial killer. My boyfriend’s favorite was the JFK story. I would absolutely recommend!

Autumn was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the dark side of Charleston. She was very animated in her story telling and kept her audience on the edge of their seats. Charleston Stories about the history of prostitution, A Woman Pirate, Woman Serial Killer and JFK were all my favorite. This tour is a MUST for friends, couples and anyone that wants a little R Rated fun!

I would definitely not recommend doing any tours through this constant-we wasted our day waiting for them- they never showed up!! We called and they said that they didn’t have an operator so it was canceled. They didn’t even bother to call us! We wasted our day and $40 in cab ride( taxi to and from our hotel)
