What’s special about the VIP Experience?
You also get access to our guide for entrance into the oldest museum home in the city, The Heyward Washington House, which is a Georgian-style double house and was once the townhome of Thomas Heyward, Jr., one of four South Carolina signers of the Declaration of Independence. The house also played host to President George Washington during his week-long stay in the “Holy City”. You will see the only 1740s kitchen building open to the public in the city, as well as the beautiful formal gardens used in the late 18th century.
If you choose the VIP Experience, you could also add on entrance to the Gibbes Museum, which is the only art museum in Charleston, established in 1858 and the oldest museum building in the South. The Museum connects the city and the region’s artistic past to a vibrant contemporary art scene.

What is the pace of the tour?
The pace is greatly influenced by the city, its sidewalks, weather and terrain. Some buildings we go into are older and require some maneuvering to get through their AADA access routes. One should note that the pace of our tours cannot be slowed as we are bound to time constraints. If you or a member of your group has a disability, please speak with our staff before you decide to take the tour.
Are your tours accessible for people with disabilities?
Yes, with advanced notice (two business days) all our tours can accommodate people with disabilities. Keep in mind Charleston was built on uneven terrain and the public streets, sidewalks, and cemeteries can be uneven.
