Charleston Haints and Hoodoo Tour, Charleston

5.0
#108 of 154 in Tours in Charleston
Join us on a stroll through Charleston's magical alleyways and narrow cobbled streets. Hear strange true stories of conjure and the macabre, witch trials and local voodoo. Visit the very spots where a mermaid was held captive, where a spirit once whispered orders into a holy man's ear, and where our own Doctor to the Dead lived and practiced a most peculiar form of medicine.

The Haints and Hoodoo Tour is a walking cultural tour grounded in real people, real beliefs and real events, all giving rise to spectacular legends and superstitions. This tour is based on works of literature, extensive archival research and numerous interviews.

Andrea a/k/a Lucretia Dahl tells wild stories of Charleston's eccentrics by day, gives ghost tours nightly, has a degree in literature from the College of Charleston and a law degree from the University of Chicago. She recently braved several weeks with howling wolves in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania tracing the footsteps of Dracula and Vlad the Impaler.

90-minute tours leave every day from Waterfront Park at 10 AM. From October to May, tours also leave at 2 PM. Times can be flexible, so call for more information, private tours, and additional times!

Cost: $20 per person. Recommended for curiosity seekers, ghost walk lovers and monster hunters, ages 9 - 99.

Space is limited. Call 843.860.2155 or message to reserve your spot.
