Overview Overview

Explore some of Charleston's enchanting alleys and hidden passages on this guided, small group, 2-hour walking tour. With our small group tours, you are guaranteed a more intimate and up-close experience. The city's alleys are distinguished by their beauty, and occupy spaces that blur the line between public and private areas. These pedestrian passageways are often overlooked in favor of grandiose homes, but walking along these cobbled paths is an opportunity to appreciate Charleston's hidden, more intimate charms.

This is a very enjoyable and informative tour of the historical Charleston neighborhoods. Jim, the guide, is just terrific. Very informative with a wealth of historical knowledge which he shares quite well. He shows how much he cares for his City. Walking about with him he seems to be a member of the family taking us on a stroll through the various streets and alleys. This visit is a must for all of the historical and current information that he provides.

I felt like there was just too much talking going on and on that didn't really pertain to the tour. It was way too drawn out and I think and hour would be sufficient. But with that said, i also didn't find it very exciting.

Bill was a great tour guide, what one would expect from a former AP History teacher. He was excited to tell us all about Charleston and spent extra time with us.

My daughters and I had a girls weekend in Charleston and chose this tour as none of us had experienced this one before. Our tour guide was excellent. He knew the history of the city and was enthusiastic about sharing his love of the city. Along the way, he would greet residents and vendors by name and always received a friendly reply. We learned some history we hadn't heard on previous visits. The two hours passed quickly! I highly recommend this tour and our guide!

My sister, dad and I did this tour. Bill is an excellent tour guide. He has so much knowledge about the Charleston area. The day we went on the tour it was really pretty chilly, but Bill was so entertaining and kept us all very interested in what he had to say that it didn't even seem like 2 hours in the cold. Well worth the money!

Highly recommend if you are considering a walking tour of Charleston! Our guide was very informative and engaging. We learned a lot about Charleston’s history that we would never have known just walking around the city on our own. The group was also small enough so that everyone could see and hear. Great tour!

First time in Charleston and this tour showed you areas you probably wouldn't have know were there. We arrived the day before and walked around the shopping area and had no idea what was behind and between the blocks of King, Meeting and East Bay. Went in July so it was hot. Recommend the 9:30am tour. Tour guide Jim was great!

One of the best walking tours I've ever been on! You won't find a more knowledgeable or engaging tour guide than Evans Byrd. His tour lets you see Charleston in a whole different light. Evans gives you an insight into Charleston history like I've never experienced before for here or anywhere else. Also if you like admiring the gorgeous foliage of Charleston, Evans is your man. I don't think there is a plant he doesn't know. In the future, I am recommending this tour to everyone as long as Evans is the tour guide. Thanks for a great day in such a wonderful city!

Evans ran our tour and was quite the character. It was nice walking around the neighborhoods we went through and learning about some of the people and their stories as they relate to Charleston's history. Evans is also VERY knowledgeable about the flora in Charleston which as a gardener I enjoyed.

Really enjoyed our tour with Bill. As a former history teacher, he provided wonderful and interesting historical perspectives with some light hearted stories. We would recommend this tour because we would not have toured the places we saw just walking about on our own.

A very pleasant surprise and a must goto tour. Fun walk that takes you to places you would never see on the regular tour. Guide was great and very informative. The stories and history he relayed to us was fascinating. I would do this tour again.

Steve was an excellent guide. We enjoyed the back stories and history of the city. A great time was had by all learning about Presidents, Pirates, and Patriots! Be sure and ask Steve where the best Biscuits are!

Went on the early morning tour. Remember to bring water and dress in light weight clothes as it's pretty muggy in July- August timeframe.
Bill Stanton is an excellent tour guide with many historical facts and stories. Very charming and relaxed as you would expect from a southern gentleman.

This is a charming guided tour to be recommended. Our guide, Bill Stanton was very informative and enthusiastic in his facts and tales. You are taken away from the main streets and get a totally different feel for Charleston. So much to see and so much history to absorb. Most enjoyable.
