Overview

No one knows Charleston like a native! Walk her historic streets and narrow alleys with me and see the elegance of bygone eras in Charleston, aka The holy City. Through Colonial times, the Revolutionary and Civil wars, up through the Renaissance period, you will experience the magic of living history.

If a heavy rain, we'd stay mostly in the Van, a 2016 Chrylser Town & Country Touring. If only a light rain, we'd get out a couple of times..Hope this helps..
