Owner description: Enchanting historic Charleston comes alive on entertaining and informative walking tours with 7th-generation Charleston native Michael Trouche. Discover stunning architecture, glorious gardens, Civil and Revolutionary War sites, cobblestone streets, wrought iron gates, legendary graveyards, and the local flavor of the fabled “Holy City” that no one knows better than Michael, who grew up in the famous "South of Broad" area, and has written two popular books on Charleston, where his family has lived for more than 215 years. Michael won numerous prestigious awards as host of the acclaimed "Carolina Camera" television program for 20 years on the local Charleston CBS affiliate, and has charmed tour guests for more than 10 years with his unparalleled knowledge of South Carolina's history, culture, plants and animals, as well as colorful insights, locations and anecdotes that only a lifelong Charleston native would know. Group walking tours are 2 hours long, and begin at 108 Meeting Street.

This was such an informative tour and Michael Trouche was a delight! It is a 2 hour walking tour filled with lots of insight and humor. We were a group of 5 including my 9 year old son who was engaged and interested while on the tour. We learned many facts and we were so happy to have included this as part of our trip to Charleston. It is seriously worth it to take the time and learn about the city especially from Michael!

The walking tour with Michael was one of the highlights of our trip to Charleston. I don't know how he keeps so much information in his head but he does. His enthusiasm and his humor made the tour that much more enjoyable.

This tour with Michael was great. He has a lot of knowledge of the area and made the tour interesting and fun. He pointed out things that we never would have noticed and knew all about Charleston. We highly recommend this tour! This should be #1 in the Trip Advisor listing!

Great walking tour with Michael! Its entertaining and informative - and Michael's wonderful voice makes it so enjoyable. Plus, his ability to remember everyone's name (he even remembered us 2 days later as we passed in the street) is sure to amaze.
