Charleston is one of America's most historic cities. Founded in 1670 by English colonists, this 300-year-old port city was once considered the cultural center of the New World. The city has survived earthquake, fire, war, tornados, and hurricanes. We've restored her pre-revolutionary and ante-bellum buildings into an all American city.

    Enjoyed the Charleston Tour very much. Tour guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. Mini bus was comfortable and cool. Make sure you use the bathroom before you go as there are no stops to go and it's long ride.
