Itinerary

Make your way to the Charleston Visitors Center to begin your tour at your selected departure time—a variety of options makes it easy to fit this tour into your schedule.

Then, head through the streets of historic downtown Charleston. Drive past must-see Charleston sights such as the Four Corners of Law, Meeting Street, and blocks full of immaculate historic homes, all admired from the comfort of a climate-controlled van that saves summertime visitors from Charleston’s infamous heat.

As you drive, your guide fills you in on 300-plus years of Charleston history from its early colonial days, through the Civil War, and to the present. Perks such as bottled water and a free ride for active duty military with valid I.D. lend this tour a sense of true Southern hospitality.

End your tour back at the Visitors Center.

Very knowledgeable

Josh gave an extremely tour of Charleston. I wish I taken it my first day rather than my last. It was very comprehensive and filled with lots of stories of the people and places of historical importance in Charleston.

I don’t recall the length of tour, but it should be on their website. Buses were clean, we were given ice cold water bottles, and bus was air conditioned although our bus was a bit warmer than we would have preferred.

You will go by the Charleston Market. It is a several block area with many arts and crafts vendors. Our guide told us it was never a slave market in Charlestons history
