2 hour historic Charleston walking tour
Our tour guide, Amy, was the best part of our trip to Charleston. On Wednesday, we arrived in Charleston and walked around the historic district. We saw a lot of beautiful houses, figured out where Fort Sumter was, and walked through Battery Park. What was missing was "how did all of this get here." We booked our Thursday tour, and were so lucky to get Amy as our guide. She had an incredible knowledge of the history of the 350 year history of the city. We never would have known the difficulties of the first settlers, the wall around the initial city, why there is a "French Quarter," why some streets are labelled "wharf" (even though they are solid ground), and so many other fascinating historical facts. And her knowledge of the history of so many of the beautiful homes (such as their "Barbados" connection, why the porches are on the south, etc.), the churches (why there are so many religious denominations, and the types of architecture), and how the streets were constructed, really explained the city to us. Her tour is not to be missed. It is just exceptional.

Wonderful and informative tour!
Apr 2021
Really enjoyed this walking trip through Old Charleston. Our guide was a several-generation Charlestonian and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city. He was able to answer all of our questions and we learned quite a bit about Charleston and its colorful history. My husband is somewhat of a history buff, so he engaged him in some lively conversations. I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this and any tour with Pineapple Tours!

Great tour for getting to know historical Charleston
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had a great experience with our guide Todd, he was very informative and entertaining. We particularly liked that he took us to out of the way spots and included a lot of information about the darker side of the city’s history you don’t see in the history books. We had a great time.

Historic tour with Todd
May 2019 • Couples
Todd was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Charleston. He took us on a lengthy walking tour of the city with plenty of breaks to discuss architecture and historic events. We had hoped to tour a home or church but had missed that opportunity based on the time of our tour. You won’t be able to stump Todd when it comes to Charleston history and fascinating stories.
Enjoyed our visit very much.

A must-do for first time visitors to Charleston!
May 2018 • Friends
If you've never been to Charleston, this is the perfect way to introduce yourself to the city! A great mix of history, culture, architecture and fun facts! We also had a person who lives in Charleston in our group who said they also learned new things about their city. The tour lasted about 1 1/2 hours which was just perfect in my opinion, as I was thinking about getting a cold beverage right at the end of the tour!

Our tour guide was knowledgable and friendly, and also able to answer all of our groups questions. We took a private walking tour, which I would highly recommend if you have a group of 6 or more.

Thank you Ben & Pineapple Tour Group!

Thanks Lauren! I had so much fun with you ladies! I really appreciate you all coming out on a walk around town with me. I agree, walking tours are a great way to introduce yourself to Charleston. It's definitely the best way so view the smaller streets and alleys around the historic district! Thank you again and have a safe trip back home!

Charleston’s role in the history of the South and our nation comes to life on this very informative tour
Apr 2018 • Couples
This was one of the best tours we have ever taken. Brian, with his depth of knowledge and love for his city and state, was able to paint wonderful pictures with his words that allowed us to visualize whatever he was talking about. He made history come alive for us. He was engaging, funny, and the epitome of southern hospitality. We would highly recommend this tour!
