Tour description provided by Viator

Whether it’s a fascinating story about a legendary brothel, or a look back at ancient forms of punishment, find out what really went on in the streets in the "Holy City" of Charleston. While it’s not meant to scare the life out of you, this uncensored tour of Charleston’s past covers the seediness that existed here way back when—and will certainly be an eye opener. This guided walking tour is 90-minutes long and for adult audiences only!
Your tour begins at 8pm when you meet your guide on Anson Street, who over the course of 90 minutes, will take you on an uncensored journey of Charleston's sordid past. Hear the tales of brothels, corruption, prostitutes, scandals, and crime, and learn the city's darker secrets that other tours leave out.While pastel-colored homes, sunshine, and southern hospitality reign supreme in the coastal city, it isn't always champagne and mimosas down here on the Charleston streets. From centuries ago to the present day, Charleston has been a place where high society is riddled with scandal, temptation, sin, and truly unruly behavior. Whether it’s a fascinating story about a legendary brothel, or a look back at ancient forms of punishment, find out what really went on in the streets in the "Holy City" of Charleston. Did Charleston have a red-light district? Why did prostitutes wear red shoes? Your licensed and experienced tour guides will answer these questions throughout the tour, and there really isn't any other Charleston walking tour like it.
