Full description
"There is only one essential ingredient in a ghost story: death." So say Charlestonians Ed Macy and Geordie Buxton in their introduction to their book about the haunted streets of Charleston.

By rambling through the oft-forgotten enclaves of the Holy City, the paranormal authors bring guests face to face with a group of orphans who haunt a dorm of a Charleston College, a Citadel cadet who haunts a local hotel, and an angelic spirit in a Freedman Methodist graveyard, to name just a few.

We will hear tales of a bookstore phantom, notorious for rearranging books in perfect vertical stacks, and a gruesome 19th century amputation taking place in a medical student’s apartment. This tour is not for the faint-hearted!

Based on historical events and specific details that are often lost in our general notion of ghosts, each haunting encounter will send chills down your spine.

Georgie was awesome. His knowledge of Charleston (and history in general) is voluminous. I highly recommend both this and his other Historic French Quarter tour (I took both). He is personable and, as a native of Charleston, had insight into to events of 350 years ago and relevant events of the past few years. Thanks, Georgie and I look forward to reporting on your book.

The tour was very informative. The tour guide basically took us to different places around town of burial sites etc. Was a bit disappointing as the advertisement made it seem more creepy. Also being a slow walker the guide didnt seem to care that 2 people were lagging behind and missing out on what he was saying while walking. :(

This is a quality tour for people looking beyond simple spooky entertainment. You would learn a lot of history delivered with a personal touch, along with mystifying facts left for you to interpret. On our tour the group was small and the guide was able to interact personally with everyone. The guide apparently possesses encyclopedic knowledge, has a deep love for history and excellent interpersonal skills, which makes you feel like you are touring with someone you know for a while and feel comfortable with. Excellent tour for adults of all ages and possibly older kids ready to listen with an open mind.
