    Explore some of Charleston's enchanting alleys and hidden passages on this small group, 2-hour walking tour. With our small group tours, you are guaranteed a more intimate and up-close experience. This tour will include some of the most popular sites, like Rainbow Row, but we will go "off the beaten path" as well and explore the history and beauty of Charleston's enchanting alleyways.

      This is the perfect way to get off the main streets of Charleston and see some hidden alleys. Our tour guide Bill, a former history teacher, was great and kept us entertained. Small group, good pace, good length.

      We had an excellent guide who had deep knowledge and was encouraging of follow-up questions. The 2-hr tour is too long for "older" seniors. There should be an understanding that there will be a "drop off" point at about 1 hr 15 minutes where some of the group can leave without ado or embarrassment. Then the more fit, less-disabled members of the group can continue.

      This was a wonderful tour. We went to many places and learned all about the alleys and passages throughout Charleston. We were a small group so we covered much more ground. We learned about the history and what the houses were originally used for. Great tour guide who was full of information .

      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.

      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.

      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.

      This tour was way beyond our expectations! I am so happy that I booked it for my daughter and I. We saw plenty of Charleston and learned the history behind many of the famous buildings and homes.
      The tour guide was the best ever!
