Check out our one-of-a-kind Original Pub & Brewery Tours of Charleston! Based upon similar beer tours in Europe, we have been featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. The Pub Tour is a fun and unique tour, which includes visits to many historic pubs (some with rooftop views of the city), old taverns frequented by pirates, breweries haunted by ghosts, and a large dose of Charleston's history. Our exclusive Brewery Tours highlight Charleston's local craft beer scene and are a great way to sample a variety of local brews while hearing the fascinating story behind Charleston beer, with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of several local breweries. The Original Pub & Brewery Tours are definitely the most exciting way to experience the city and everything LOCAL! We often sell out quickly so we recommend making reservations in advance. We accommodate groups of all sizes and will customize any group/event tours to your specific needs. Cheers!

My husband and I were with a bachelorette party. This could have been a disaster, but fortunately, they were very fun and social with us. The tour guide was a bit frustrated, I believe, as we were socializing more than listening. My only complaint is...More

We enjoyed our visit. We had a fun group and guide was fun and informative. Found it easier to follow guides stories before entering establishments due to noise and other factors. Overall a great night.

I would recommend this pub tour of Charleston. We went to some cool bars that we would have never tried on our own and learned some interesting history about Charleston. We visited 5 bars that were all different. I would do this tour again.
