Charleston Pirate Tours April -June 2012
"The Pirate Tour was the highlight of our entire trip to SC...You always know you are on the right tour, when other tours stop to look at yours!"  The Mason Family

In authentic costume & accompanied by Capt. Bob, the parrot,  Eric Lavender shares stories of the pirates who plundered, partied, and perished in Charles Towne.  Eric brings Charleston's Golden Age of Piracy to life with stories of Blackbeard's siege of the city, the capture and execution of Stede Bonnet and other pirates, the romance between Calico Jack and Anne Bonny, and much more!  Anne Bonny actually grew up in the Charleston area, and there is evidence that Blackbeard was was born nearby!  Along the way, you'll also learn about some of the city's most historical buildings and events.

The tour begins in the National Landmark Powder Magazine Museum, the oldest public building in the Carolinas.  Admission to the Museum is included! We also have a special partnership with the Old Exchange Building & Provost Dungeon, which allows us to offer a discounted package that includes a guided tour of the Exchange and Dungeon.  

"We had several tours of Charleston and I must say ERIC IS THE BEST TOUR GUIDE IN TOWN!!!!! We learned more about the city and pirates than we could have ever dreamed and had fun doing it. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!"

"I have to see that I think this tour was the best that we have ever taken.  The information was fascinating and the layout of the tour took into account a great blend of sitting vs standing--and even where it was shady!  It was an amazing tour that even kept my 14-year-old daughter interested--and she isn't a history buff."  

"Eric's historical knowledge is impressive, but I was more impressed with his as a storyteller.  Malaika and I kept remembering Eric quotes for several days and got a lot of laughs.  We have already recommended your tour to other people."

"Eric is an exceptional story teller.  It was a riot to walk around the old cobblestoned streets behind our authentic pirate guide, who showed us taverns and hidden spots and the dungeon connected with pirate lore.  It was a great value for the money, and will remain one of our best memories of Charleston, ever!"  

Customized, Private and Group tours are available.  For information on these services, please call 843-442-7299.
