Ghost and Graveyard Walking Tour
Bulldogs tours presents this nighttime stop, the Charleston Ghost and Graveyard Walking Tour. This tour departs at 5 pm, 7:30 pm, and 9:30 pm nightly and takes your group into this city’s "beloved pockets" of history within some of the oldest graveyards, such lovely parts of this area’s culture that they are oftentimes just referred to simply as gardens. Bulldog Tour Company has been voted Charleston’s Best Tour Company for six years in a row, laying claim to this historic city's touring rights. There are several different themed tours offered through this company for an affordable price, but the one you will be embarking on tonight is the Ghost and Graveyard Walking Tour, an up-close and personal journey through one of the oldest cemeteries in the city.
During this tour, your group will get to walk inside the gates of the oldest graveyard in the city and explore each and every dark corner of history held within its boundaries. The fun and informational city-experienced tour guides will give you the history of graveyards in the area alongside stories of famous burials with this "Holy City." Hear tales of intrigue, love, and loss as you look for the ghost of Sue Howard, the grieving mother who lurks around this burial ground and of the great Muilfier John Calhoun dancing in the streets. Your group will learn that Old Charlestowne doctors were so feared of contagious disease that a majority of those sick were actually buried alive, as well as the origins of terms such as "saved by the bell" and "graveyard shift." Don’t forget to bring your flash camera to try and capture your own spooky spirit, and also bring a jacket for the chilly Charleston evening air!
