About Walks of Charleston

“Charleston is our home. Our family roots date back to Colonel William Rhett’s arrival in the colony in 1698.” – Richard Rhett Knoth

We welcome the opportunity to provide a variety of unforgettable experiences for our guests, and we appreciate the chance to show you our Charleston.

We had a very enthusiastic tour guide Amy, who did a great job of informing us about the historical aspect of the city. The highlight was Church street seeing all of the magnificent homes. A very nice tour to get familiar with Charleston.
