The Joseph Manigault House was intresting! I was surprised to find that this house had a tour guide stationed in just about every room. Built way back in 1803, the Manigault’s were a wealthy family, the second richest in South Carolina, he inherited several rice plantations and over two hundred slaves from his grandfather in 1788. His first wife’s father,... More

I brought my wife to Charleston as she has always loved stories about the Òld South`. We went to the `Charleston Visitor Center`and drove around the area numerous times without success in finding parking. We decided to use the parkade beside the Hampton Inn. The cost for the entire day was $16. From here, you can easily walk all of... More

The tour times are prompt so be there early. Our tour guide wasn't very friendly, she spoke as if she was reading from a script and spoke very quickly and quietly. I felt a bit rushed and didn't feel I really got to appreciate the second floor before we were called back to the main hall for our departure. There... More

This was a Christmas in Charleston tour under Homes to Visit that were decorated. We chose this house because of the beautiful spiral staircase. The house was beautifully decorated, but the tour was done in 1/2 an hour. No time was given to read the displays or look around in each room. We thought that when we came back downstairs,... More

This is a beautiful home, especially the staircase. My husband and I went here during out trip to Charleston and got a combination discount with the Charleston Museum (plus a AAA discount), however, you need to get it at the museum because I don't think they offer it at the home itself. Everyone I've heard also recommend the historical homes... More

This house was gorgeous, like many of the other historic homes of Charleston. But the tour guide spoke like she had memorized the spiel, and although whe told us to "linger as long as we liked" she would begin speaking in the next room before we were all done lingering. The home was all decorated for Christmas, which was a... More

Our tour featured the house decked out in it's holiday finest (kudos to the Charleston Garden Club!). The guide was very knowledgeable, even doing some impromptu research to answer our questions. The interior is incredibly beautiful, made even more so by the elegant and understated holiday decorations. Like many such houses in the south, the topic of slavery is acknowledged... More

We made it a point to go here because it was advertised that the Garden Club of Charleston had decorated it for Christmas. It was a great disappointment. 25 minute tour for $10 a piece. Quite unremarkable compared to other home tours we have taken in this city.

They do tours per the posted schedule no matter how small the group is. We had to wait a little while to get started but enjoyed the tour. The house has gone through a lot of changes since it was built and they've tried document as much as possible to share with visitors. The staircase is beautiful. When you exit... More
