Guided commentary provides insight into Charleston attractions as you drive, making this a comprehensive introduction to the city for first-time visitors.

Highlights
Charleston sightseeing tour by minibus introduces you to city highlights
See historic churches, grand homes, and top sights like the Citadel
Traveling by bus is comfortable any time of year and covers lots of ground
Live narration from your guide lets you hear stories and ask questions, too
What to expect
With five departure times throughout the day, it’s easy to find a time that works for you to meet your guide at the Charleston Visitors Center and begin your Charleston sightseeing tour. Board a comfortable, climate-controlled minibus with no more than 15 passengers and begin to drive through the streets of the Holy City. Cover more ground on bus than is possible by foot, heading as far out as Hampton Park, the Citadel, and the Battery in a single outing. Free admission to the Charleston Powder Museum is also included. As you drive, your guide shares stories from Charleston’s history from its early days as a colony, through the Civil War, and up to the present. Tour ends back at the original start point.

Excellent tour with knowledgeable guide. You won’t be disappointed!
Shawn was an excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable. We saw a great deal and was worth the money. This was the first activity we did upon our arrival to Charleston which was a great way to begin our time here and learn some history of the city. However, I wish we could’ve had opportunity to stop and get out of bus to take pictures. It was an enclosed bus and with glare on the windows, we couldn’t really get any pictures. I would highly recommend this tour!

Great way to see Charleston
Jun 2021 • Friends
Shawn was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable and engaging. They packed a lot into 90 minutes and provided a good overview of the city and its history without “whitewashing” it. Totally recommend as an option to the horse drawn carriages. I do not support their use of horses in this way.

Ride with Shawn - he's incredible
May 2021
We considered touring the city with one of the name brand international touring services. Based on reviews here, though, we decided to spend $52 with Adventure Sightseeing for a bus tour of the city combined with a boat tour of the harbor.

We boarded the tour bus at the visitor's center, which was convenient. When you go, be sure to arrive early to get a parking space!!

Our bus driver and tour guide Shawn has an encyclopedic knowledge of Charleston history. He's professional, friendly, and approachable with questions you may think of beyond his very engaging narration. He even gave me some advice on restaurant selection from a local's perspective. The bus is impeccably clean, and the climate control was perfect.

For those who are serious about COVID precautions, masks were required when we went on May 25.

If you want quality touring at a great value, go with Adventure.

LOVED IT!!!
Shawn was an amazing tour guide!!!! Loved the experience!! Got to see so many historic buildings and he knew so much about the history! Loved his humor and friendliness. We actually got the time for our tour mistaken but he graciously called us before he took off! Luckily we were in the parking lot at 10 right when the tour was supposed to start (we thought it was 10:30, our mistake).

Cancel tour but no reimbursement, terrible company.
May 2021
We had booked a tour for June 17th in Charleston but did not realized you could not cancel for any reason. On May 10th I had to cancel and asked for our $64.00 reimbursement, which I thought was not last minute decision but was told I could not get my money back for any reason.
To be honest I was surprised they charge you so far ahead. I’ve learned my lesson for sure. I absolutely do not recommend this Tour Company, I hope no one else will book with them and have the same thing happened to them.

Excellent trip - well worth it
May 2021
This is about the 3rd or 4th time we have taken a tour in Charleston by different means. This tour was the best of any due to the excellent narrative by Shawn. We were so impressed by his unbelievable memory of dates and names and the running commentary for nearly and hour and a half. Shawn was very pleasant, friendly and funny too. The bus was comfortable and cool, much better than riding in a horse-driven carriage in the heat with flies. Also I believe we covered more miles than the horse and carriage did.
