The 10 AM Old Walled City Tour is the ideal Charleston walking tour covering the very oldest neighborhoods, the waterfront at High Battery, and historic Charleston Harbor including Fort Sumter. The very best tour for lovers of architecture and gardens is the Home and Garden Tour offered at 1:30, which includes entry to two museum houses including the Heyward Washington and Edmondston Alston Houses.

In addition to our daily offerings, the
Slavery and Freedom Tour is the only Charleston tour devoted exclusively to slavery and antebellum culture and is offered by appointment. In the evenings, our Spectral Adventure Ghost Tour will regale you with sad and ghastly tales of Old Charleston! This tour is available for your groups of four or more and can be arranged in the evening to suit your schedule. Check above for details.

We are glad to arrange our Charleston Tours for your school, church, civic groups or family reunions. Whether your group is 10 or 100, we can provide you with the best guides in the city to entertain your tour gathering! Call for rates and scheduling .

Welcome to Charleston!

I look forward to being your host on your next tour in Charleston. I am a seventh generation native son whose family arrived in 1792. I have been giving tours of my lovely old home town since 1979. Join me on a stroll of quaint backstreets and alleys, grand boulevards and the waterfront. We’ll peek into gardens and I’ll weave a tale for you of a city with a fascinating history of both great glory and tragic devastation. Through it all, Charleston has emerged as a city of incredible beauty and enduring traditions. My hope is that when we part ways that you will share my love of Charleston, America’s Most Historic City!
