Overview

Enchanting historic Charleston comes alive on entertaining and informative walking tours with 7th-generation Charleston native Michael Trouche. Discover stunning architecture, glorious gardens, Civil and Revolutionary War sites, cobblestone streets, wrought iron gates, legendary graveyards, and the local flavor of the fabled “Holy City” that no one knows better than Michael, who grew up in the famous "South of Broad" area, and has written two popular books on Charleston, where his family has lived for more than 215 years. Michael won numerous prestigious awards as host of the acclaimed "Carolina Camera" television program for 20 years on the local Charleston CBS affiliate, and has charmed tour guests for 10 years with his unparalleled knowledge of South Carolina's history, culture, plants and animals, as well as colorful insights, locations and anecdotes that only a lifelong Charleston native would truly know.

I really enjoyed learning about the history of Charleston through Michael's tour. He clearly has a passion for the city. I plan on recommending to my out-of-town guests to do his tour as it was very educational and entertaining.

Michael was a great tour guide. Lots of information but given in a light hearted way. He quickly learned the names of all on the walk and sought to tie into their background and interests. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Michael packed a lot into this downtown/lower historic district walk. He was engaging and even learned the first names of everyone in the group. 7th(?) generation Savannah-ite.

Really enjoyed Michael’s tour! He knows his facts, tells super interesting little tales about Charleston, and packs much more than expected in the 2 hour + tour. He talks fast and it’s easy to hear him! He waits for his guests before he describes an...More

Michael's tour was alive with personal and historical anecdotes and arcane facts about life in Charleston that would not be found in the standard guides that include walking tours. Michael is the consummate performer making the tour as fun as it was informative.
