See the Entire Historic District


Using a vehicle allows us to cover more ground and see sites we wouldn't see on a walking tour. While we'll use a vehicle, we will stop and get out to take a closer look at some sites.

Highlights include the Battery, the Market, historic churches and homes, the waterfront and harbor, and the Citadel.

We'll cover the Colonial Period, Revolution, Antebellum, Civil War, and more. The tour includes admission to the National Historic Landmark the Powder Magazine Museum (c. 1713).

I am happy to customize the tour include any special interests you may have.

We have the necessary city permits and vehicle insurance to operate motorized tours legally.

Appearances on NBC's Today Show, Travel Channel, PBS, National Public Radio, A&E, Syfy, and Lifetime. 5 stars on TripAdvisor, Yelp, Google, and Facebook.
