Overview

A walking tour of Charleston is especially pleasant when done in a small group of just 15 people or fewer. Avoid overcrowded sidewalks and photo ops as you follow your guide through the historic French Quarter, past the mansions of Broad Street, and down to the Charleston Battery. As you walk, your guide regales you with tales of Charleston's fascinating history, which is all too easy to miss if you forgo a guide.
  • Charleston walking tour with French Quarter, Broad Street, and more
  • Glean insight into Charleston’s history that you might miss on your own
  • Stroll to top destinations around the Charleston peninsula
  • Hill-free city is easy to walk around for active travelers

really knowledgeable history guide who kept it light and fun despite super hot temperatures. Eric led us to the main historic sites but also down quieter residential streets away from the crowds. With only one day in Charleston, we were so happy we booked. Eric was great and generous with his time.

If you are looking for a no frills, historical information tour and you are lucky enough to get Eric as your guide then you are in for a real treat. Eric is very well educated. His knowledge base is incredible. My wife and I could have stayed another 2 hours if it were available. Charleston is a fabulous town with lots of history and this tour certainly brought it to life.

Great tour. Our guide, Eric, was so knowledgeable about the history of the city (it was part of his PhD dissertation!) He was interested in the facts and dispelled several myths I've heard for other guides because they make a good story. Would definitely go on this tour again.
