What to Expect
Your guide for this 2.5-hour walking tour, Al Ray, has been a student of Charleston architecture throughout his life. In the 1980s he worked as a manager on projects involved in restoring historic properties in the city.

With your guide, you’ll explore the intricate details that make Charleston so special. It is a perfect walking tour, even on a hot summer day, as you’ll be spending as much time inside as you do outside.

The tour price includes deeply discounted admissions to the Powder Magazine Museum (1713), The Heyward Washington House and Garden (1772), and the Edmondston-Alston House (1825), making this a best value tour as well as one of historical interest.

You’ll cover just over a mile in a bit more than 2.5 hours, which includes the guided tours of 2 house museums.
