Join registered guide Elise Detterbeck behind the gate of Trott's Cottage for a unique walking & history tour of Charleston, SC.
Trott's Cottage is one
of the oldest houses in Charleston, and is within the original walled part of Charleston.
The tour starts inside with a brief overview to set the scene for the 8 historical characters (REAL PEOPLE) whose stories will walk you through the unique history of Charleston.
Although this is a "walking tour", if your group finds walking a challenge, this tour can be easily adapted to a "non-walking" tour with advanced warning.
