Charleston’s Alleys and Hidden Passages
Explore Charleston’s Hidden Gems
Take a small-group tour of Charleston’s Alleys and Hidden Passages, the most popular tour offered by our sister company, Lowcountry Walking Tours, which specializes in intimate tours for a more in-depth experience. This tour offers a magical view of the often-overlooked side of Charleston.
Come explore some of Charleston’s most enchanting hidden passages on this approximately two-hour walking tour in an intimate group setting.
Distinguished by their beauty, these walkways occupy spaces that blur the line between public and private areas and offer remarkable insight into the history of the Holy City. These quaint areas are frequently inaccessible by automobiles and are often overlooked — even by frequent tourists and residents who are more focused on the city’s grand homes and famous landmarks.
Taking a tour along these picturesque cobblestone, brick and stone streets offers an opportunity to step back in time and appreciate Charleston’s charms on an intimate and inviting scale. It has been said of Charleston that it is the only place in the world where one may live on an alley and be respected.
We invite you to come explore some of these passages and other landmarks on our small-group tours.
