Charleston: Private Carriage Ride

1. Charleston: Private Carriage Ride

Experience Charleston on a private carriage ride. See the “Holy City” in a more intimate setting with your own personal tour guide, who will tell you all about the historical buildings, parks and plazas of the city. You'll get to see more than 25 blocks of this historic town.  For a truly memorable experience, choose the evening option to see the sun set over the city and the city lights coming on.  You will be travelling in a Palmetto vis a vis carriage, where two benches face each other, offering a wonderful experience for a small group or family.

Charleston: Private Shem Creek Culture Tour

2. Charleston: Private Shem Creek Culture Tour

Experience the only publicly available historic walking tour in Mt. Pleasant - an area that dates back just as long as the peninsular of Charleston but that most people never have the opportunity to learn about. Start the tour by meeting your private local guide with the City of Charleston. After a brief introduction, take a short walk to the oldest house in Mt. Pleasant to talk about the area's first settlers and a famous revolutionary war battle.  From there, head over to Shem Creek proper to take an insider look at the shrimping industry, a staple of the area for many generations with several seafood markets with a variety of species. Watch as the tour guide shows how to throw a cast net or bring up a crab trap for an up-close view of some blue crab. At the end of the tour, leave with a well-defined sense of the wonderful culture this creek has hosted since the first colonists and well before that.

Charleston: 1.5-Hour Private Ghost Tour

3. Charleston: 1.5-Hour Private Ghost Tour

You are invited to walk the streets of Charleston, which have been weathered by both time and tragedy. You can follow in the footsteps of lords and generals, murderers and thieves, slaves, and the free. Throughout your tour you will take a step back in time to when duels were all but law. Throughout your 1.5-hour tour, your guide will weave you through the gas-lit streets of Charleston, painting another world with their words. Your guide will tell you all about tales of the "macabre", oddities of history, legends of pirates, the whispers of poets, and paranormal events. You will also peer into graveyards, and hear stories of intrigue and murder. You will truly find yourself transported back in time, discovering the town as the sun sets and the otherworldly come out to play. It is time to retrace their steps, relive their history, and pray they don’t follow you home.

What people are saying about Charleston

Bryan was a great tour guide. He was interesting, funny and informative. Loved both the the historic aspects of the tour as well as information about shrimping and crabbing. This tour far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend taking this tour. I look forward to taking some of the other tours he offers next time I visit Charleston.

This was amazing. The knowledge of our guide and the care taken to answer all our questions. I think a private tour is the best choice if you want to ask a lot of questions.
