There are only a handful of tour guides that are native to the area. I am one of them. My family has been in the Carolinas since 1735 and came to the Charleston area in 1786 to preach abolition of slavery. This city is my home and I love to welcome people into it. I love the history, culture and people, both alive and long gone, that make up an American story, the story of Charleston. I am part of the community and walking the streets with me is like being on a walk around the neighbourhood. I know the history like the back of my hand and thankfully, over the years, have gotten to know the residents that live in the areas we walk through. Join me. I am not part of some big tour company. I am a sole proprietor. When you book with Peninsula Walking, you get me. Join me to see famous landmarks, like Rainbow Row, the Battery, Ft. Sumter, stately mansions and beautiful gardens. Tours run at 10:00 am daily.
