I highly recommend this ghost tour! Our guide, Tad, was awesome! He gave us ghost stories and overall information about the Yorktown (which was nice because we did not do a regular tour of the ship). It is not really scary, but you get enough to give you an eerie feeling while walking around which we loved! We had such a great time and would definitely do this again the next time we are in Charleston.

My grandsons age 16 and 13 and I experienced the ghost tour for the first time. We loved our tour guide Sarah and all the history she shared of the ship. Great learning experience for my grandsons to explore the ship. I would recommend to anyone wanting to integrate a fun time with education and pride of our country. Thanks for a very special evening.

Matt was great. Answered all of our questions and gave great detail and insight into the lives of the sailors who lost their lives while serving. Also, he was very knowledgeable about the boat and it’s history. Stories and experiences he related were awesome. And being able to be 1 of 15 people on the whole ship after 10:00 p.m. at night was amazing! No crowds, lots of room to walk around and explore without bumping into other people. 100% worth our time. Advise you take the 10:00 p.m. tour so you can tour the ship in the dark.
