Charleston has its share of many wonderful tour operators, including carriage and bus tours. Those are certainly a nice way to see some sights, but I’m obviously partial to walking tours. When I travel and have a chance to take a walking tour in a new or even familiar city, I enjoy a chance to see sights in a more intimate way which walking tours can provide.
Walking tours also allow for more flexibility and definitely better photo opportunities. Taking a guided tour, especially early in your trip, will expose you to the general highlights, significant buildings and interesting and notable Charlestonians. It’s also a good opportunity to ask questions and hear recommendations on how best to spend your time.
Group walking tours typically take around 2 hours and are $25 per person. If you would like a private and more customized tour, please contact Liane.
