Do I have to purchase tickets in advance? Space is limited, and tours often sell out. To get the tour time that you want, we suggest advance purchase.
Is the tour appropriate for children? Yes, the tour is family-friendly and appropriate for all ages.

Do you cancel for bad weather? Tours run rain or shine. Should hazardous weather force the cancellation of a tour, you may reschedule your tour (based on availability). If you cannot reschedule, we will refund your purchase.

Bathrooms? As the tour route takes us through several residential areas, public restrooms are few and far between, and there are no scheduled restroom stops.

Is there access for the handicapped? Charleston’s 300-year-old sidewalks can be a bit daunting if you have mobility issues. However, we do our best to accommodate all including guests with wheelchairs and motorized scooters. If your group does not want a walking tour, we can arrange a a motorized tour or storytelling presentation for you.

Are cameras/video recorders allowed? Yes. In fact, the parrots love posing for pictures.

Should we tip the tour guide? Tipping is always appreciated.

Can you take large groups? Yes, we can accommodate large groups. However, the City of Charleston regulates the tour industry and limits the number of walking tour guests to 20. If you have a group with more than 20 people, we will have to split up the group and use multiple tour guides. All of our guides are highly experienced and very entertaining, and all dress in period apparel. Just contact us for booking information.

Do you do private tours? Yes, we are happy to customize private tours. Please contact us for information on scheduling your private tour. Call 843-442-7299 or email

Do you offer gift certificates? Yes, and a Charleston Pirate Tour gift certificate makes a terrific gift!

Can I hold/pet the parrots? For your safety and that of Captain Bob and Doozer, we do not allow guests to handle them.
