Excellent history lesson! We enjoyed our tour of the city. Unfortunately, Fort Sumter was closed due to the government shutdown, but we were offered another tour option.

As we were the last tour of the day we didn't have a lot of time at the Rort! But was still great to actually be on the Fort.

ITINERARY

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.

  • Boat Vouchers: Gray Line guests will receive vouchers for boat passage to Fort Sumter upon check-in with the Gray Line dispatcher.
