On this tour you will follow in the footsteps of George Washington when he came on a state visit to Charleston in 1791.

Walk with your guide down lovely streets and lanes to view the marvelous architecture of homes built more than a century ago. Peek into the exquisite private gardens of this quaint old city and breathe the aroma of tea olive or magnolia.

Visit Heyward-Washington House (1772), where Washington stayed while he was in Charleston. This lovely museum boasts the finest collection of locally made furniture in the city, and has one of the few original kitchen houses remaining in Charleston.

Finally, you will wander past St Michael's Church (1761) where George Washington worshipped.
