Our Philosophy

Tour Charleston promotes low impact and responsible tourism by advocating for the thoughtful protection of our historic neighborhoods and staying true to our city's singular heritage. 

Our Mission

  • History, Mystery and Wonder: These three elements of Charleston inspire the substance of our tours.
  • Do it right: We may get only one opportunity to do it right, so we bring individual attention and enthusiasm to each customer and every ghost and history tour that we conduct.
  • Cultural and Visual Alignment: We have aligned our company images and services to reflect the character and integrity of the city. We grew up here and are in this business for the long haul. Our marketing approach is simple and subtle--We aim to conduct business in a manner that Charlestonians are proud to recommend. This focus has worked for us for over 19 years.
  • Low impact, responsible tourism: Businesses that focus on mass tourism tend to be culturally insensitive. We seek the opposite by advocating for the thoughtful protection of our historic neighborhoods and staying true to our city’s unique heritage. We engage in business practices that serve to enhance the overall quality of experience for Charleston visitors as well as the quality of life for us who live here. We believe this is a mutually inclusive prospect.
