Owner description: Enchanting historic Charleston comes alive on entertaining and informative walking tours with 7th-generation Charleston native Michael Trouche. Discover stunning architecture, glorious gardens, Civil and Revolutionary War sites, cobblestone streets, wrought iron gates, legendary graveyards, and the local flavor of the fabled “Holy City” that no one knows better than Michael, who grew up in the famous "South of Broad" area, and has written two popular books on Charleston, where his family has lived for more than 215 years. Michael won numerous prestigious awards as host of the acclaimed "Carolina Camera" television program for 20 years on the local Charleston CBS affiliate, and has charmed tour guests for 10 years with his unparalleled knowledge of South Carolina's history, culture, plants and animals, as well as colorful insights, locations and anecdotes that only a lifelong Charleston native would truly know.

Couldn't have asked for a better guide to show us around during our short stay in Charleston. Michael was extremely knowledgeable and had us engaged the whole time with interesting facts and anecdotes about the city. It was especially great because Michael, a lifelong Charlestonian, included stories of his own life in the larger story of the life of the city. Highly recommend!

Michael is an expert on historic Charleston. He provided stories about the city that can't be read in books. The tour was so informative and interesting that I did not want it to end; even my teenage son loved the tour. This is the only walking tour in Charleston worth the money. We had access to private gardens because of Michael's notoriety. You are missing Charleston if you do not take Michael's tour.

My daughter and I recently did a tour with Michael. He was everything other reviewers said. Funny, informative, never boring. Plus he knew every shady spot! Two hours just flew by. Don't even consider any other tour.

My wife and I highly recommend Michael's tour. It's a lot of fun and very educational. I think the best part is that he grew up on the streets that he shows you. One spot especially will give you a very cool insight into Michael and his city. Have fun. --We came from Onrario, Canada on July 26, 2014

Michael lead us around historic Charleston, SC with great detail. He provided a historic context to the buildings we viewed and quaint stories that made the 2 hour tour entertaining and a learning experienced. Highly recommend this tour. He took us through some passageways that we might have missed if we just walked around ourselves.
