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.

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


We will take a leisurely drive around the historic district. We will break up the drive with stops at the Powder Magazine, and the Battery. Other sites include the Dock Street Theatre, the Citadel, Waterfront Park, City Market, St. Michael's and other historic churches and homes.

We will cover Charleston's 347-year history from Colonial Period to today.
