Then, head through the streets of historic downtown Charleston. Drive past must-see Charleston sights such as the Four Corners of Law, Meeting Street, and blocks full of immaculate historic homes, all admired from the comfort of a climate-controlled van that saves summertime visitors from Charleston’s infamous heat.

As you drive, your guide fills you in on 300-plus years of Charleston history from its early colonial days, through the Civil War, and to the present. Perks such as bottled water and a free ride for active duty military with valid I.D. lend this tour a sense of true Southern hospitality.
