Overview
A walking tour of Charleston is especially pleasant when done in a small group of just 15 people or fewer. Avoid overcrowded sidewalks and photo ops as you follow your guide through the historic French Quarter, past the mansions of Broad Street, and down to the Charleston Battery. As you walk, your guide regales you with tales of Charleston's fascinating history, which is all too easy to miss if you forgo a guide.

Al was such a wonderful tour guide. We are grateful to have learned so much history and culture. This was definitely the favorite of the trip. We were worried about bringing our 7 and 12 year old, but it was just fine. Thank you Al for sharing your knowledge and fun with us!

You forgot to mention that I kept us on high sidewalks so we wouldn't wash away! With Charleston only three miles from the ocean, ocean air and rain create a unique experience combined with the rustle of the Palmettos. That was a great rain group Thursday, so glad you had a memorable time! Next time, Carolina Blue skies!

We had a great two hour walking tour with Al and the bonus was we were the only people in the tour due to low season. Al asked if we had any special interests and he provided a great overview and very knowledgeable tour of Charleston’s gardens and architecture. Al was very

Al took us everywhere - all we had to do was ask and he even took us places not on the agenda. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Gave us local colloquialisms which added a little spice to our experience.
