Charleston Private Tours

Charleston, South Carolina is the southern belle of the Eastern Seaboard. That "southern charm" you've heard about? You'll find it here in spades. Take a private Charleston tour and experience all the romance and history of the South with a friendly local guide.

You may want to get a quick history lesson at the Charleston Museum. Founded in 1773, the museum claims to be the oldest in the United States, and is itself a piece of the city's history. Learn about antebellum life at Aiken-Rhett House, the only surviving Urban Plantation. At White Point Park, you can wander among the city's shady gardens and 19th century mansions; you'll want to keep your camera handy as you stroll along Rainbow Row, famous for its candy-coloured houses. Stop for lunch and experience fantastic "low country" cooking.

Whether you're an epicure, a historian or an adventurer, your guide is happy to design a private Charleston tour that reflects your unique interests in this fascinating American city.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
