This escorted walking tour through the streets of Charleston allows you to fully appreciate the city's charm and allure via an up-close look at its cobblestone streets, varied architectural styles, and world-famous "basket ladies."
As your guide leads you through Charleston on this comprehensive walking tour of the city's Historic District, you'll be able to immerse yourself in its fascinating history via sites such as Hibernian Hall (c.1840), a National Historic Landmark and the site of the 1860 National Democratic Convention, as well as Saint Michael's Episcopal Church (c.1767). Soak in the patriotic history and pride of Charleston as you are surrounded by its remarkable 18th and 19th century buildings.
After a lovely stroll through Charleston you will find yourself at the Nathaniel Russsell House. Set amid spacious gardens, the mansion is recognized as one of America's most important neoclassical dwellings. This Federal period home has round rooms, oval rooms and square rooms, one above the other, and is well-known for its grand, free-flying staircase, each step supporting the next step, up three flights. The home is a prime example of urban city living for the time period and is filled with period antique furnishings, china and silver that showcase life in Charleston in the early nineteenth century.
Following your tour of the Nathaniel Russell House, your guide will escort you back to the pier where your tour will conclude.
