Carolyn S.

Charleston, SC, United States

Hello! My name is Carolyn. I would love to share some of what is going on in Charleston today, as well as the unique history and personalities which make it such a vibrant, eclectic city.

Although my French Huguenot ancestors settled in Charleston in the late 1600's, I was born in Miami, Florida. I worked with ToursByLocals for several years while living in Miami recently, and received high ratings from my guests there. I have lived in my home of Charleston for 12 years, have been a certified tour guide here since 2012, and worked as a professional docent before that.

I have a degree in interior design and am a graduate of the International Tour Management Institute in San Francisco. I am a certified Heritage Trust Tour Guide for South Florida in addition to being certified for Charleston, South Carolina.

My knowledge of architecture and art history provides my guests with an informed, and fun tour. I greatly enjoy telling the stories that make history come alive.

I hope my published tours will pique your interest, or please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange for your custom tour!

Happy Trails!
