Overview
This Charleston bus tour takes you past top city sights such as the Battery, Rainbow Row, and White Point Gardens in the comfort of an air-conditioned van in just a couple hours. You guide provides information about the city that you might miss if exploring on your own. Let your driver handle the maze of one-way streets as you relax, learn some history, and enjoy the views.
What to Expect

Make your way to the Charleston Visitors Center to begin your tour at your selected departure time—a variety of options makes it easy to fit this tour into your schedule.

Then, head through the streets of historic downtown Charleston. Drive past must-see Charleston sights such as the Four Corners of Law, Meeting Street, and blocks full of immaculate historic homes, all admired from the comfort of a climate-controlled van that saves summertime visitors from Charleston’s infamous heat.

As you drive, your guide fills you in on 300-plus years of Charleston history from its early colonial days, through the Civil War, and to the present. Perks such as bottled water and a free ride for active duty military with valid I.D. lend this tour a sense of true Southern hospitality.

End your tour back at the Visitors Center.

You will go by the Charleston Market. It is a several block area with many arts and crafts vendors. Our guide told us it was never a slave market in Charlestons history
