Small-Group Tour: Charleston Old Walled City Historical Walking Tour
US$22.50
Overview
A walking tour of Charleston is especially pleasant when done in a small group of just 15 people or fewer. Avoid overcrowded sidewalks and photo ops as you follow your guide through the historic French Quarter, past the mansions of Broad Street, and down to the Charleston Battery. As you walk, your guide regales you with tales of Charleston's fascinating history, which is all too easy to miss if you forgo a guide.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at 9:50am at the Historic Charleston Foundation Shop to prepare for your historic walking tour. Your guide will lead you through the historic city, starting with the French Quarter, and provide insight about the city's rich history - including tales of heroic sieges, a devastating natural disaster, and two major rebellions. As you continue on your tour, you will hear stories about buildings over 300 years old that are still standing today. During your time, you will also make your way past grand mansions south of Broad Street. You are encouraged to suggest topics of interest prior to the tour as well as actively ask questions during your stroll. With your questions and suggestions, each tour will be tailored to participants which offers a unique experience of this historic city. Your tour will conclude after approximately 2 hours at Charleston's High Battery, offering a scenic view of the Charleston Harbor to complement the sights you've seen.

Great tour, unhurried and pleasant. Al is knowledgeable and engaging. He does small groups which are much preferred over the herd type.
