Charleston is no ordinary place, your tour of Charleston should't be an ordinary tour!

You will enjoy one-half day (4 hours) at a Plantation of your choice, Middleton Place or Magnolia Plantation. Middleton's gardens are formal, Magnolia's Gardens are romantic. This four hour sojourn will provide our drive time explaining the rice culture of the plantations.

Your second half-day will explore the hidden cobble stone streets and passageways of the most preserved city in America, Charleston , SC! 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

When in Charleston, Joyce is your 'go to' guide. As we thoroughly enjoyed our experience with her.She is professional, knowledgeable and extremely accommodating and just a wonderful person. We took two tours with her and to say we were extremely impressed is an understatement. She has an incredible passion and love for her city and both the city tour and the Middleton Plantation tours were beyond my expectations. I learned so much, she planned our tours and ensured our interests, passions were addressed.
