Owner description: Enchanting historic Charleston comes alive on entertaining and informative walking tours with 7th-generation Charleston native Michael Trouche. Discover stunning architecture, glorious gardens, Civil and Revolutionary War sites, cobblestone streets, wrought iron gates, legendary graveyards, and the local flavor of the fabled “Holy City” that no one knows better than Michael, who grew up in the famous "South of Broad" area, and has written two popular books on Charleston, where his family has lived for more than 215 years. Michael won numerous prestigious awards as host of the acclaimed "Carolina Camera" television program for 20 years on the local Charleston CBS affiliate, and has charmed tour guests for 10 years with his unparalleled knowledge of South Carolina's history, culture, plants and animals, as well as colorful insights, locations and anecdotes that only a lifelong Charleston native would truly know.

“Excellent tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed 2 hours walking Charleston with Michael. He is a wonderful guide, there is certainly a skill in delivering the right balance of historical information, amusing anecdotes and fascinating trivia and he has that down pat. If you take his tour you will have a richer appreciation of a lovely city that has such interesting history, characters and beautiful sights. Highly recommended!

“Fun introduction to Charleston!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We just went on one of Michael's tours and it exceeded our expectations! Michael adds a lot of fun perspective to the rich Charleston history. I would highly recommend his tour even if you think you are already familiar with Charleston.

Michael was very knowledgeable and walked us all around historic Charleston. Lots of churches and history and recommendations on museums and attractions to visit. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

Michael did a great job and was very informative. He even tactfully handled a person in our tour that wanted to focus on California instead of letting him talk. I would highly recommend this walking tour!
