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.


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.

Palmetto Carriage Tours of Charleston

Take a Carriage Tour of Charleston

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.


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.

Client Testimonials

  • A Charleston resident suggested a Traveling Ink concierge might be able to help me. It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was one of the best pieces of advice I could have received. My friends thought I was an organizational wizard even though I kept telling them it was Traveling Ink, not me.

  • We so enjoyed our time in Charleston. Thank you for all your insight! I am recommending your services to everyone I know who is traveling to Charleston!

    ~Kathryn C.
  • Traveling Ink planned the three full days we would have in Charleston, how we would get from one place to another, places to eat, and what the costs would be. To add to the challenge, we had to change the day of one of the main attractions because rain had been predicted. They handled all the changes with out missing a step.

    ~ Harriett H.
  • These Charleston pros do a phenomenal job in any setting. Audra was our point person and is a pleasure to work with. She is laid back and can work with any request.
