Private Historic Walking Tour

The port city of Charleston, founded in 1670, is known for its cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages and water-color antebellum houses, especially noted in the elegant French Quarter and Battery districts.

Experience 12-15 blocks of Charleston's historic downtown district during this private 2-hour walking tour with your very own local, knowledgeable guide. Learn about the buildings, history, architecture, flora and the people that make up the "Holy City." Stroll by houses, mansions, churches, gardens, fascinating ironwork and parks.

Tour the Powder Magazine, which housed the city's gunpowder in colonial times. The Battery promenade and Waterfront Park both overlook Charleston Harbor, while Fort Sumter, a federal stronghold where the first shots of the Civil War rang out, lies across the water.

This walking tour will last for 2 hours and will offer a look into areas where the horse drawn carriages are not able to take you. Blending local knowledge, wit, humor and history, this walk-through time is exciting and ever changing.
