This Charleston sightseeing experience takes you on a thorough tour of the city’s historic district, which would be difficult to cover if you were on your own with a guidebook. Plus, this is a group tour, so you can meet a few new folks along the way, too.
This Charleston tour is only around two hours, so that leaves plenty of time left in the day to organize other activities.
Aim to meet your group and guide at an easy-to-find location in the Charleston Historic District around 15 minutes before your departure time to keep things running smoothly. Make your way, on foot, to explore its hot spots, bursting with stories of the past.
Since you have a live guide, listen to anecdotes and some Charleston secrets along the way. Pass by several important sites, making stops at several. Specific locations will change, depending on the day.
Do bring a water bottle, since there aren’t many places to purchase water. Also, wear weather-appropriate clothing, since this tour runs rain or shine.
Your Charleston walking tour ends and leaves you in the city's South of Broad neighborhood.
