We did this tour as part of the Charleston Museum Tour package. It was not as good as I expected. It was a quick 30 minute tour of the house. It was nice, but left me wanting more.

Street parking likely for 2 hours. If you are also going to the Charleston Museum, find a garage. Close to 39 Rue de Jean, which I recommend highly for lunch. Built when this was the rural edge of Charleston. Plenty to see inside. Nice wait...More

This historic property is located right across from the Charleston Museum and is a worthwhile stop. Knowledgeable tour guides take you on a tour of this restored property. Gives you a good feel for life at the time and an overview of Charleston history.

A fascinating and very atmospheric old house just opposite the Charleston Visitors Centre and the Charleston Museum, at one point I think in the 1930s it was due to be knocked down and turned into a gas station but proud Charlestonians fought to have it...More

This beautiful house is impeccably preserved. Yes, there is restoration, but, according to our very well informed guide, 90% is original; that gives you the real insight into the level of wealth this family enjoyed. Unfortunately, you do not see any example of how this...More

This antebellum house, built by a rice planter, is a thoughtful glimpse into wealthy pre-Civil War lives. The house tour is not long, is informative, and is given by guides open to questions.The central hallway with its deceptively light spiral staircase is an elegant look...More

`A little advice: don't take the last tour of the day. The staff were quite obvious in wanting us out of the house as soon as possible. Decent tour of the building and its history, but staff is not too eager for questions or lingering.

Another "don't miss." The docents are VERY knowledgable about the house and its prior occupants. Furnishings are as authentic as possible. This place represents Old Charleston at its best.

They have done a really great job at restoring the house and trying to keep it's original character. Much of the original structure remains pretty well intact, though objects originally held by the family have, sadly, long since vanished. Gives a good insight into how...More

We enjoyed the beautiful architecture and Furniuture and the guide was extremely knowledgeable. The main issue was that we felt slavery was avoided even though slaves were the ones who did all the work leading to the house. I understand it doesn't need to be...More

Yes. We just walked there and paid for the house tour. It might be cheaper to combine it with another tour -
