Capture the essence of historic Charleston on this guided tour of the French Quarter and South of Broad districts with a licensed (and local) tour guide. Fans of the book Very Charleston walk by wrought iron fences and hidden alleyway gardens taken right from the pages, while those who haven’t read it glean first-hand knowledge about the Holy City’s history and culture as they walk.
What to Expect
Your guided stroll through the French Quarter and South of Broad neighborhoods highlights over 347 years of our rich history and culture including the longest cobblestone street, The Dock Street Theater, Rainbow Row, historic churches, Charleston's celebrated waterfront and much, much more! You will encounter Charleston’s history, culture, and country charm inspired by Diana Gessler’s celebrated book "Very Charleston". You will also gain a deeper understanding of the development of Charleston’s unique character over the course of nearly four centuries. Learn about the city’s unique architecture, cuisine, and people while exploring its cobblestone streets, hidden alleyways, and stately homes. This deceptively thorough 80 minute stroll with a licensed tour guide is a beautiful and fun way to explore the highlights of Charleston’s rich history.
