Description

Travel back in time to the early days the nation with a tour that immerses you in Charleston's historic sights and centuries-old landmarks. Afterward, peruse the fascinating exhibits of the Charleston Museum—recognized by the American Alliance of Museums as the first museum in the country.

Get picked up from your hotel and snag a seat on an air-conditioned vehicle for a 90-minute ride around utterly charming Charleston. Packed with buildings that predate the American Revolution, this city bears traces of more than 300 years of history. Cruise down residential lanes lined with colonial townhouses, and pass by the stately churches and government buildings at the intersection known as The Four Corners of Law.

Snap photos of the pastel-hued Georgian houses along Rainbow Row, and delve into the days of the Civil War at the Battery Waterfront, where you can spot beautiful mansions along the harbor, old cannons in the shade of leafy oak trees, and surf crashing against the sturdy stone walls of Fort Sumter.

Afterward, visit the Charleston Museum, which was founded all the way back in 1773—before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Admire collections of antique furniture and silver, Lowcountry textiles and ceramics, and 19th-century firearms. You can also peek at the only known fossil of the extinct Pelagornis sandersi, which was discovered during construction at Charleston's airport.

I paid, thru Expedia, the Museum and historic Charleston houses. The tour guide said I could only have one item, either the museum or one of the houses on the tour. Expedia needs to get with the tour operator on what the tour includes. Obviously Expedia failed to do that!!!

Driver was knowledgeable. He was somewhat funny, but could have used a shot of energy. We were disappointed when we were dropped off at the historic mansion. It was a great tour, but when we went across the street to view the Charleston Museum, we were told that we were supposed to have chosen either the mansion or the museum. NOBODY told us that, and the website indicated that we would be doing both. Disappointing, but the trip was good overall.
