Great tour that gives you the history of prohibition and my interesting personal stories from our guide Don. You get visit 4 different bars and try 4 different cocktails while Don is explaining all the history and stories. I think it was fun and something different then the usual tours. The only thing I would to be in a quieter spot in these bars...very hard to hear what Don was saying with the music and people chatter. The cocktails served were good...I would suggest a rum drink instead of 2 gin drinks.

The speakeasy tour was fantastic. Don was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable about the prohibition era. The tour includes some Charleston history in combination with the prohibition. You will get to walk thru some of downtown and hear entertaining stories while going to the 4 different bars and enjoy a drink at each location. Our group was very much entertained and we all had a good time. I would definitely go again next time in Charleston. This tour was one of our favorite things to do while visiting.

No real information about Charleston and prohibition. Felt like the tour should have been in NY. The bars were just what was nearby not bars that are in Charleston from prohibition. One was an Irish bar from 2020 and another was just a chicken joint.
