Owner description: We were formerly Charleston Ventures Tours, LLC however recently new companies have popped up with similar names to ours plus the fact that we are so highly rated with our hotel concierges and online review sites we felt a rebranding was in order. Our new name, Southern Accent Tours describes us perfectly.....local tour guides that have a passion for our lovely city! We offer FREE hotel pickup from all hotels downtown. HISTORICAL CITY TOURS Take a fabulous 90 minute ride on our plush minibuses as we take you back in time and tour Charleston's Historic District. Most all tours are conducted by the owner. You will quickly discover his love for the city and enthusiasm for hosting visitors. City Tours depart the Charleston Visitor Center at 9:30, 12:00, 2:30 and 4:30 everyday. PLANTATION TOURS There are four plantations in the area that are open to the public; Boone Hall, Magnolia Plantation, Middleton Place and Drayton Hall. We are the only company that goes to all four. Each of the plantations has its own unique gift to offer visitors ranging from immaculate gardens to original slave quarters and everything in between. Plantation Tours last approximately 4 hours and depart the Charleston Visitor Center at 9:30 and 12:00 everyday. On our website you can download our brochure and get even more detailed information about our company. Phones are open 24 hours a day.

Had a wonderful tour of the town in a nice clean, air conditioned mini bus. Tour guide was very informative. They will also pick up at your hotel.

Definitely book this tour with Charleston Ventures when visiting the city! Thanks to Richard and Pam for our great trip to Drayton Hall in August. First class, professional, and extremely knowledgeable and accommodating to all parties visiting different plantations. The door-to-door service was great, because we stayed at a resort and did not have to worry about trying to find a place to meet them since we chose not to rent a car.

They were prompt, even though other parties who had to be picked up were not. Professional and classy under pressure. We will return again during the "less humid" time of the year. Thank you for a great experience.

p.s. to the Mrs. of the D.C. couple, behave. To Pam, not all Yanks are rude. :0)

We had an excellent 1 1/2 hr tour of the city of Charleston. Our guide was very informative and the bus itself was modern and comfortable. It gave us a great overview and indicated to us what we might want to pursue in detail in the future.

Don't look anywhere else for tours in Charleston, this is the best! On the recommendation of our hotel we were put in touch with this family owned tour company. After a lovely conversation with them they put together a package for me that wasn't even in their brochure to meet our needs. Our drivers and tour guides on 3 different days were Richard and Pam. Both went out of there way to make us feel as if Charleston was our home. They made our vacation very special.
