What you'll do

Welcome to Charleston, well known as a drinking city with a slight history problem! With this in mind guests will meet at the initial bar location where some complimentary appetizers will be served and guests will have the opportunity to purchase some local craft beer or cocktails while the guides (Adam or Bryan) go over a brief personal introduction and history of the City of Charleston. From there guests will walk to predetermined historic sites around the French Quarter including one of the oldest homes in Charleston. Brief stories and accurate historical insight from a licensed guide will cover a period stemming from the early colonial days all the way through World War II including topics on the revolutionary/civil war, pirate attacks, and of course alcohol in this famous city. This is not a typical "sit there and shut up tour" but rather an opportunity to engage with your licensed guide! Guests will be able to seek a brief respite at the next dive bar location for another small complimentary appetizer and a particular focus will be given to the period of prohibition in Charleston as a city rife with bootleggers, speakeasies, and "Blind Tigers." The tour will finish at a stunningly beautiful local park in close proximity to other area bars and restaurants since many guests just don't want the history and hops tour to end!
Other things to note
It gets hot/humid in the summer. As this is walking tour please be able to comfortably walk 2 miles. Guests with walking difficulty should avoid this tour as we do go over cobblestone/ brick/ small alleyways.

Captain Bryan is a 7th generation Charlestonian of Huguenot Heritage. A people that would have been among the first settlers of this historic city. As a charter captain, licensed tour guide, public servant (historic commission), and former senior analyst; Captain Bryan is the perfect guide with which to explore the city.

Adam Moore lives just over the bridge on James Island with his wife and son. In 2015 he quit a management job and transitioned back to his roots as a history major by becoming a licensed guide. As a veteran tour guide, he has met guests from all around the world and believes giving tours is both an honor and a pleasure.

Both of these guides have a thirst for not only history but also local watering holes which correlates to a unique experience for guests to the area. Come join Adam or Bryan and "live the local life."

Where you'll be

This experience will be conducted in the compact French Quarter district in downtown Charleston and includes well structured and organized arrangements at partner bars and a route unlike any other tour of historic Charleston. Guests will leave feeling like they are a local after visiting the oldest house in Charleston, the city theater, the provost dungeon, the Charleston waterfront and many scheduled stops in between.

Captain Bryan was great! He is very personable and knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. We think this tour would be a great compliment to one of the horse tours as you don’t get the traditional history of Charleston. Capt Bryan is all about stories! He is a wonderful storyteller and it was like hanging out w a local.

Bryan was super knowledgeable, personable & outgoing. Since he was born & raised here he was able to give us insight other than just what’s learned in history books. We definitely recommend this tour & we plan on trying his other tours when we are back in the area.
