Palmetto Tours Walking Tour


Take in the streets of Charleston with a walking tour hosted by some of Charleston's most experienced tour guides at Palmetto Tours. Guests are able to choose a general or specialized tour depending on their interests. On each tour, visitors will be lead by a tour guide certified by the City of Charleston. Guests will have extended time to delve into the charm and richness of the city's historic district whether it be for an overview of Charleston or more information on one of the company's specialty tours such as the Civil War or historic homes and architecture.

Palmetto Carriage Works

Ready to go? BOOK ONLINE HERE. Discount Code: travelingink



If a visitor had to choose one tour to take in the City of Charleston, a carriage tour with Palmetto Carriage Works is what I'd recommend. Carriage tours give visitors an excellent overview of the city's beauty, history, and charm. The one hour residential tour covers about 25-30 blocks of the downtown historic district. Guests will see public buildings, churches, mansions, and local botany as they navigate the streets of Charleston, and a tour guide who is licensed with the city will give them the history and background of the sights as they go.

Giving Back

In creating Traveling Ink, I have been given access to a unique audience of people. Just as I care about the recommendations I give visitors to this site, I care about the overall content Traveling Ink is providing as well. As such, I saw an opportunity to share information about some great organizations and nonprofits who are giving back in the Charleston community and around the world. So, Traveling Ink will be highlighting some of those organizations on a rotating basis and providing information about their events, fundraising opportunities, and ways to give back.


My hat is off to all of the folks serving in different ways in the southest and beyond. I encourage you to check out the information posted on the organizations in the giving back category and see how you can get connected.

What is Traveling Ink?

I have a confession. This is my first blog entry. Ever. It may seem a bit strange to start a travel business with blogging as a major component when I've never blogged before, but I'm okay with that. And hopefully by the end of this post, you'll understand why.

Palmetto Carriage Testimony

Without a doubt, the best memory of our trip!!! Our driver had so much personality and kept us all in stitches while providing fantastic historical information about our route. He was friendly, approachable, and very knowledgeable. We will book a carriage tour again on our next trip.
