Description

Immerse yourself in the colonial past, American heritage, and pre-war beauty of Charleston on this tour of the city's historic heart. After scoping out landmarks from Rainbow Row to the City Market, visit a restored mansion for a true glimpse of what life was like here in the country's early days.

After you're picked up from your hotel, settle into a comfortable coach and prepare to travel back in time as your guide shares trivia and tales from more than 300 years of American history. Weave through charming lanes lined with colonial townhomes, and spot centuries-old places of worship and government buildings at the intersection known as The Four Corners of Law.

Cruise past the 13 colorful Georgian row houses known as Rainbow Row, and stop at the Battery Waterfront, where you can admire elegant mansions, statues, and old cannons set among leafy oak trees. Take in the view of Fort Sumter as you hear about pivotal moments in the American Civil War, and then make your way to the City Market, a National Historic Landmark that spans 4 city blocks.

Finally, step into the antebellum beauty of a fully restored historic home. Admire the elegant interiors as you imagine what life was like in this grand residence during a bygone era before your excursion into America's early days comes to a close.

The guides were excellent in detail and appropriate humor. Great overview of the city. We especially appreciated the warm bus tour on an unusually cold day.

The guide was very informative on the tour, both in terms of history and current info. And the docents at the historic home were very good. This was a great tour.
