Without a guided tour of Charleston’s Historic District, you’re likely to miss the city’s seemingly endless array of beautiful historical sites that make it so popular. A Charleston walking tour is the perfect way to get acquainted with the Holy City, as you stroll down old alleyways (a maze for first-time visitors) and visit Charleston’s must-see attractions—all while learning about the city’s 200-year history from your guide.
What to Expect
Your Charleston walking tour meets at an easy-to-find spot in the French Quarter. Begin to follow your guide to some of the city’s top historical sites, as you listen to stories from Charleston’s eclectic past.

As you walk, you pass popular Charleston sights, such as Rainbow Row and the Battery. Take in views of historic Fort Sumter, pastel Antebellum mansions, classic wrought-iron gates, and cobbled alleyways—the perfect photo is always just around the corner.

Your guide tells you fun facts about Charleston’s colorful history as you go, and you’re free to ask any questions, too.

Your walking tour of Charleston concludes at the starting location in the French Quarter.
