Charleston Tour by Minibus Description

Charleston, South Carolina is no ordinary place, and your tour of Charleston shouldn't be an ordinary tour. It should be both a history lesson and an experience, enhanced with the insights only years of study can provide. Let us give you the voice of experience.

Long before Charleston gave birth to the Civil War, this port city enjoyed wealth unprecedented in America. Charleston rice planters reigned as landed aristocrats, while Charleston shipping merchants amassed fortunes from slaves, rice, and cotton. Your tour will reveal the architectural legacy of this society and tell its story like no other tour.

Motorized tours, unlike carriage tours, have virtually unrestricted access to Charleston's Historic District. Most bus tours (minibus tours, that is because large buses aren't allowed on the narrow streets of Charleston) include The Battery area and the City Market, cover several miles of the Historic District, and show visitors many of the homes and churches for which the city is famous.

Tour Highlights:

  • The Battery
  • College of Charleston
  • Civil War Sites
  • Original Walled City
  • Rainbow Row
  • Harbor of History
  • Hunley Replica
  • Old Citadel
  • Cobblestone Streets
  • Colonial Lake
  • Dozens of Churches
  • African-American History
  • Earthquake Bolts
  • Beautiful Gardens
  • Hundreds of Houses
  • Movie Locations from The Patriot and Cold Mountain

This is a non-stop tour in a mini-bus.

Tour includes free hotel pick-up and drop-off from downtown Charleston hotels. Child rate applies to children 12 and under. Please order online or call to order or for more information.
