This is the only walking tour in Charleston that includes a tour of the historic Edmondston-Alston House. Charleston's history and unique way of life can be greatly attributed to its location on a small peninsula bounded by two rivers. The southern tip of this peninsula, known as the Battery, has become one of the city's most treasured sites and no visit to Charleston would be complete without touring this historic district. Starting and ending at the Edmondston-Alston House, take an hour-long guided walking tour South of Broad Street and learn not only about the area's rich history, but about the extended Alston family during the years before the Civil War. Your experience will conclude with a 30 minute tour of the Edmondston-Alston House with its magnificent view of Charleston Harbor.

Our guide was very personable, funny, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We got an impressive but not overwhelming amount of pertinent info and all of our questions were answered. The tour was just the right amount of time and we even got some lunch recommendations too.

Great information and enthusiasm from our guide, Neal. We were 7 adults and 2 children, touring in 100 degree weather, but everyone enjoyed it.

Awesome walking tour. Neil has his masters in history and does not disappoint! Answered all our dumb questions with true love of history! Very personable without a script. Highly recommend. We also did another different walking tour with them and had Ben. He was a hoot! A local with lots of information which again is not scripted. A True southern man that had us laughing with his soutern sense of humor.
