General History Tour


Tuesday through Sunday at 9:30 am and 1:00pm. Tours are 2.5 hours.


The tour of tours. This one does it all. We follow the trace of local history from the early colony through the present. Facts. Insights. We hunt for nuggets and patterns. We celebrate the search. Eureka! No one else in Charleston (we like to think) does its summary story quite as well. The route includes homes south of Broad Street, several historic churches, the French Quarter, the city's oldest buildings, the central slave market site, Rainbow Row and Waterfront Park overlooking Charleston Harbor.
