Consider A Walking Tour

The best way to see Charleston is to get out on foot. From a moving vehicle, you just can not experience the textures and details of the city - so consider a walking tour.

The Original Charleston Walks, Charleston's premiere thematic walking tour firm, offers visitors to the Holy City an unrivaled selection of two hour walks throughout the City's fabled Historic District.
