2 Hour Historic Walking Tour
Charleston’s historic alleyways and pocket gardens can’t be reached by car or carriage, making this Charleston walking tour an excellent option for visiting the Holy City’s enticing nooks and crannies. Follow a guide through the French Quarter, down to the Battery, and right past Rainbow Row as you learn about the city’s 350-year history from a licensed tour guide.
What to Expect
Take a historic Charleston walking tour, where carriages and motorcoaches are not allowed as you take a fascinating tour with stories and traditions revealing Charleston’s rich history and colorful past. This tour will go south into one of the largest historic districts in the nation and will guarantee a visit to Rainbow Row and to the battery. Our tour guides will show you some of Charleston’s most famed landmarks as well as give you glimpses of this historic city that you can only see on foot. The pace of our walking tour is leisurely and our guides are there to answer any questions that you may have as you stroll through the “cradle of southern charm and hospitality”.

Some historic highlights on the Charleston Stroll walking tour will include:
Rainbow Row, Historic Waterfront Battery, Antebellum Mansions, A visual tour of Fort Sumter, Hidden Gardens & Courtyards, Historic Churches & Graveyards and sites important to both the Revolutionary and the Civil War.
