Discover the secrets of Charleston with a knowledgeable local guide.

Charleston is considered the jewel of the southeastern United States and "America's Best-kept Secret. " Through occupation, economic hardship, fires, earthquakes, and hurricanes, Charleston has exhibited a remarkable resilience. History is found literally around every corner, and the city is often called a living museum.

As we meander through the streets of Charleston you will begin to appreciate the city's charm and allure; the cobblestone streets, varied architectural styles, and world-famous "basket ladies" can be found nowhere on the planet except in this remarkable town. Your journey through Charleston will consist of a comprehensive tour of the city's Historic District, where you'll indulge in fascinating history, from Hibernian Hall, a National Historic Landmark and the site of the 1860 National Democratic Convention.

And you'll surely notice the lack of high-rise buildings and abundance of church steeples {hence the city's moniker of the "Holy City"; two of the most notable include St. Michael's.


Our day and the time we start the tour is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and interests.

Don't forget your camera: we will stop for photo opportunities at one or more of the following locations: White Point Gardens at the Battery… the Four Corners of Law… or The Citadel.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at the cruise ship terminal. This is at the corner of Market and Concord Streets. The cruise terminal is located in the heart of the historic district.

End location: I will drop you off at the cruise ship terminal.
