This exclusive historic walking tour highlights the essential streets of downtown Charleston and highlights many trailblazing women worth remembering. While strolling down the charming streets and hidden alleys of the French Quarter and South of Broad with Travel Writer and Licensed Tour Guide, Jill Paris, you'll be privy to the secrets of local characters and learn about the southern culture through heartfelt tales, not lectures. You can almost hear the desperate plea of captured lady-pirate Anne Bonny pleading for her life; badass women abolitionists, writers, artists breaking down barriers; a young girl-spy's quick-thinking cool under pressure; a pioneering preservationist; a female ghost's sad story; and an African American leader worthy of her own national holiday. Let's face it. Girls rule.

* Plenty of time to take Instagram-worthy snaps
* Tour covers History, Culture, Architecture, Plants & Flowers, and more
* Tour starts and ends next to convenient parking

This is the first time my wife and I have visited Charleston. What a beautiful and charming city! My wife and I enjoy unique adventures and experiences. I thought she would enjoy the Amazing Ladies of Charleston Walking Tour. We met our guide, Jill, and learned we were the only ones on the tour that day. What a wonderful experience! Jill was so friendly, open, and knowledgeable! We had a relaxing, interesting, engaging, and fun time. The next time we visit Charleston we will contact Jill for another tour.

Jill will instantly feel like a friend! She is so positive, inviting and fun to be around. She was a wonderful tour guide! Much of our group was actually from Charleston or had lived here for several years and we all learned something while on the tour. I thought it was the perfect amount of time for a walking around downtown and she was kind enough to allow for photo-ops and breaks, which we were all grateful for! Thanks so much, Jill! You are the best!!

Jill is such a friendly tour guide and very knowledgeable about Charleston history. She allowed us time to take pictures with all the gorgeous landmarks. Jill personalized our tour to what we wanted. For locals, we learned details about our own city we never knew about.

I went with a group of ladies for one of Jill’s tours, “Amazing Ladies,” and had a great time. She is very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour filled with all kinds of fun info. You can tell she truly enjoys what she’s doing which ‘she’s it all the more enjoyable. Definitely recommend taking this tour even if you’re a local, like we all were, because you’ll definitely learn some new things & discover some hidden side streets you probably never knew were there!

We had an amazing time learning about the amazing ladies of Charleston! Jill was so informative and incredibly friendly. Always made sure we were hydrated and doing alright with the heat. She pointed out details in the architecture as we walked and shared extra little historical tidbits along the way. I highly recommend her next time you visit Charleston. Very well worth it!

Jill is a great tour guide and story teller. We had only one day in Charleston and she helped us make the most of it. It was hot and she made sure we walked on the shady side of the streets, went into cool buildings and took breaks as needed. In the end we grabbed a drink together! Definitely give her a call if you’re in Charleston.
