Daytime Walking Tours
Stroll through 300 years of history as Chucktown Tours shows you the exciting history of Charleston South Carolina.
Often, we have people visit who have heard about some historic part of Charleston SC and would like to find out more. That's no problem - you can design your own walking tour.
Whether it's centered around Architecture, The Revolutionary War, The Civil War, or just the history of Charleston in general. We can design a walking tour just for you. A combination of walking, talking, museums, out of the way pubs, or even a tour of the many art galleries. You tell us what you want to see, and we’ll design a tour around it.
It’s a perfect Girl’s weekend, bachelorette weekend event, or even just a large family get-together - keep in mind, this is a group tour, so your price includes up to ten guests (you and nine others) This is not your normal sightseeing tour. This is an experience designed just for you and your friends. The walking tour will last about 2 hours, and of course the cost of facility tours, food, and beverages are not included in the tour price.
Please let us know at least a week in advance of your tour date. It's takes a little while to design a tour, so these have to be booked at least a week out.

Take a Chucktown water tour when you're looking for unique things to do on the water, or you're just on a sightseeing tour of our great city.
A few things to consider
We’re not walking fast, and we take our time. However, Charleston isn’t known for its straight and level sidewalks – that’s why we don’t recommend wheelchairs and walkers on a tour like this.
It can be very hot and humid in Charleston – in addition to comfortable walking shoes, you may want to bring a bottled water.
One of the prettiest places in Charleston SC is Waterfront Park. From the cool ocean breeze to relaxing views of the Charleston harbor, we want to make sure you don’t leave town without seeing this side of Charleston – so we chose to start our walking tours by the big fountain where the kids play.
