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.

Our Guide Evans was very knowledgeable

Our guide Evans was very knowledgeable. You could tell he was a local who really knew the history. He had great stories. Even though it was raining we still had a great tour.

Highly Recommend!

We had our tour with Bill, a former history teacher. Bill was very interesting. It was really great to go through the alleys and to see an “off the beaten path” of Charleston. It gets warm out there, bring water and hydrate.

Sorry I just saw this. I think this one is good - you’ll see different houses/structures, alleys and some history. It’s a bit of both. Hope this helps.
