Overview

Explore some of Charleston's enchanting alleys and hidden passageways on this small group, 2-hour walking tour. With our small group tours, you are guaranteed a more intimate and up-close experience. Charleston's alleyways are fortunately located within the popular historic district which allows us to include some well known points of interest on the tour and go a little "off the beaten path” while exploring the history and beauty of Charleston's enchanting alleyways. Generally, we include between four to six different alleyways/passages as well as popular points of interest like Rainbow Row and of course, tons of history! These pedestrian passageways are often overlooked, but walking along these cobbled paths is an opportunity to appreciate Charleston's rich history and hidden, more intimate charms.

Highlights

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Fully narrated tour
  • Great overview and orientation of the city
  • Small-group tour

Jim had extraordinary knowledge of all things Charleston. At the end of a movie that I really like I'm often ready for it to be over... Not the case with this tour. Could have used another couple of hours to listen to to Jim bringing three and 400-year-old buildings to life.

Our guide did a great job - very well informed on any questions asked and it was just a really fun tour. It was really unique to see the alleys and learn some of the smaller pieces of history about the city.

Our guide, Captain Jim, was personable and well informed. He has much experience doing Charleston tours, once had been a horse drawn carriage guide, so he brought a lot to our walk. His family has liven in the Charleston area for over 300 years so he certainly knew the area. I would think this should not be the first tour one takes of Charleston if a new visitor needs the big pictures of Charleston history, but super for a micro view, Not a difficult walk.

Loved the alley view of Charleston. We got to see some lovely, unique sites of Charleston. Our guide was personable and knowledgeable. We took our 2 grandchildren and we all learned something.

Capt Jim kept us engaged for the entire 2 hours. Not an easy feat - he was knowledgeable, informative, interesting and an excellent story teller.
