Overview

Book ahead to guarantee your spot on this walking tour of Charleston’s alleys and hidden passages, offered only a few times a day. Your guide knows the quickest routes around the city to show you multiple highlights in just a few hours. Plus, some of the passageways are so hidden, you’d never see them without someone to show you the way.   

What to Expect
Your tour of Charleston’s alleys and hidden passages starts at the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, which was built in 1771. Meet your guide, and set out on your journey through the city.

As you go, listen to fun facts about Charleston’s past and present. See Rainbow Row, one of the longest clusters of Georgian row houses in the United States and the Heyward-Washington House. Stroll along one of the city’s oldest streets, Longitude Lane, and discover mysterious spots such as Stoll’s Alley. Pop into McCrady's, a place where George Washington once ate.

Your guide will also tell you about Charleston during the colonial period, the American Civil War, and the Revolutionary War.

After about two hours, your tour ends near the starting point.

Just what we had hoped for

Had a lovely afternoon with Bill exploring Charleston’s alleys and hidden passages. It was just what we had hoped for - history and humor. Highly recommend and will go on another tour when we visit again.
