The Largest Oak Tree west of the Mississippi and Private City Tour


Located on Johns Island, the Angel Oak is one of the most celebrated trees in the Lowcountry. Foresters estimate its age to be about 400 to 500 years old. That means it germinated before the United States was united.

The trunk is 9' diameter, 28' circumference, half acre of shade, with branches as large as other tree trunks. Arborists have been said to weep upon seeing it.

We will then tour the Walled City of Charleston. During this tour you will see among other buildings the Nathaniel Russel House that was built in 1808 by a wealthy shipping merchant, it is an example of Neoclassical American houses. The interior of the house has been restored to its original grandeur and it is surrounded by formal gardens. Visit this house with me and travel back in time!

A Recent Review of this tour

Had a great day in Charleston with Joyce, who went out of her way to accommodate our party of four seniors. We saw and learned so much about Charleston and its history, thanks to Joyce's extensive knowledge and passion.
