Owner description: 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 more than 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 know. Group walking tours are 2 hours long, and begin at 108 Meeting Street.

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 is very knowledgeable about Charleston's history and presents the information in a humorous and skillful manner. Great way to learn about the city for first time visitors like me.

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.

Michael packed a lot into a fascinating 2 hour walk. Great as an introduction to the area as I had a limited time in Charleston. He was engaging and even learned the first names of everyone in the group. He's lived in the community a long time and gave us insights beyond what a tour book could do.
