Charleston Tour Schedule | Free Tours by Foot

Not sure what tour to take?

Due to city regulations and the overall enjoyment of guests, we limit our tour size. Our tours are very popular and we often are forced to turn away many interested guests. We have found that groups have a higher than average no show rate. In order to be fair to everyone, we generally do not allow groups of 6 or more on our public tours without prepayment, which can be done on our Booking Page.
