We chose to do the USS Yorktown Ghost Tour on Sunday the 11th. It was by far the highlight of the weekend! Tad Legare was extremely knowledgeable of the ship and a very entertaining tour guide. I was worried this would be a cheesy ghost tour with a bunch of fake noises and bad stories but it wasn't at all. More about the history of those lost on the ship and what people have experienced ever since then. The USS Yorktown is beautiful at night and much less crowded. Only complaint is that it ended too soon! We could have easily spent another hour and a half with Tad giving us a tour of the rest of the ship. This should be a must do on your Charleston trip for sure!
Did the Supernatural Charleston walking tour, I cannot say enough good things about this tour, it was amazing! Geordie was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide, and as it turns out an accomplished author. We toured an area of Charleston that, from what I gather, is not typical of most tours, and in turn leaned a lot about things we may never have sought out on our own. Our son really took in Geordie's lessons and tales and made sure to share them with anyone who would listen. I will definitely be booking another tour next time we are in Charleston! I really wish we had something like this in Pensacola to do in the meantime. Thanks for a great tour.
Simms was a great guide, he definitely made things fun. I think the tour is way too short, but it was fun to learn the history of the prison. Honestly didn’t think it was creepy enough, I’m open to spirit and didn’t feel too much energy other than in the iron room and basement. If you’re a history buff do this, it’s a great history.
This tour was fantastic! The ship is incredible. Andrew is a wealth of knowledge and provided our tour group with the perfect combination of history and spooky stories. It is obvious that he has the utmost respect for the ship and all of the men who served on it and a great interest in the paranormal.
We had a great time on our ghost tour. I’ve taken both the walking tour and the ghost tour. Geordie was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable of the Charleston area and was pleasant to have as a guide. I highly recommend you take either of his tours. You will not be disappointed.
