Charleston Historic City Tour & Fort Sumter Combo

3 - 4 Hours

Price Breakdown:


Take a journey through Charleston’s 300 years of living history with our licensed tour guides. Experience the Old Market area and the historic homes and churches where generations of Charlestonians worked, lived and worshiped. Step out of the air-conditioned minibus onto the famous Battery Seawall. See and hear about Fort Sumter, the Harbor of History and the Aircraft Carrier Yorktown at Patriots Point. PLUS Enjoy a cruise to historic Fort Sumter "Where the Civil War Began".

This tour combines our 90 minute Historic Charleston City Tour with a boat tour to Fort Sumter "where the civil war began". The fort tour lasts 2 1/4 hours. These tours may be taken on separate days. If you decide to take both tours on the same day you must purchase either the 9:30am, 10:00am, 12:00pm or 12:30pm Historic Charleston City tour to conform to the boat schedule. These times will allow Gray Line of Charleston to provide you with transportation to the boat dock as well as arrange for your transportation back to the Visitor’s Center.

Gray Line City Tours depart every 30 minutes from 9:30am until 3:00pm from the Charleston Visitors Center located at 375 Meeting Street.

The van driver was amazing. She picked us up at our hotel, starting the tour then and also was the driver for the tour. Amazing wealth of knowledge of the city, with many tips and suggestions on what to do and where to eat. She also picked us up after the boat tour and brought us back to our hotel. This helped my husband who can't walk for too long. The tour of Fort Sumter brought history to life and the rangers explained things that weren't clear for me before. It was an enjoyable day touring the city and taking the boat to Ft. Sumter. I would recommend it to everyone.

Both the historic area tour and the trip to Fort Sumter were interesting and very well coordinated. Only 6 on the tour in a comfortable small bus. George was a wonderful tour guide, as was the guide who picked us up after Fort Sumter. Recommended tour.
