  • Charleston: Haunted Bar Crawl with Tarot Reading

    1. Charleston: Haunted Bar Crawl with Tarot Reading

    Get an insider's view of Charleston's paranormal history on a walking tour with an expert local guide.

    Begin your urban walking adventure by meeting your guide on the steps of the US Customs House. Make your way to one of Charleston's most notorious bars and listen to ghost stories and tales of Charleston’s darker side while enjoying your favorite beverage.

    From the bar, walk towards a graveyard where you will learn how to spot a ghost and the spirits of those who still roam the streets.

    Turn the corner and walk towards a very different, but equally spooky bar. Finish the evening with more history and ghost stories and a tarot reading.

    What an experience! Larry is energetic, passionate, and excited about Charleston. He is knowledgable about the past snd circumstances of the stories he tells. He is interested in the lives of the group and uses the tatot reading as a way to link the group and plays games with the cards to provide humor and light. Met amazing people, laughed a lot and learned some interesting facts about Charleston! Highly recommend!
