What to Expect

Make your way to the Charleston Visitors Center to begin your tour at your selected departure time—a variety of options makes it easy to fit this tour into your schedule.

Then, head through the streets of historic downtown Charleston. Drive past must-see Charleston sights such as the Four Corners of Law, Meeting Street, and blocks full of immaculate historic homes, all admired from the comfort of a climate-controlled van that saves summertime visitors from Charleston’s infamous heat.

As you drive, your guide fills you in on 300-plus years of Charleston history from its early colonial days, through the Civil War, and to the present. Perks such as bottled water and a free ride for active duty military with valid I.D. lend this tour a sense of true Southern hospitality.

End your tour back at the Visitors Center.
