Sightseeing is a big attraction in Charleston, and it doesn’t have to be either expensive or boring, thanks to Free Tours by Foot.
They offer a budget-friendly walking tour option for many visitors to Charleston, all while earning five stars at TripAdvisor from previous travelers.
The concept is unique: They offer their walking tours nearly every day of the week led by knowledgeable, enthusiastic guides who work for their pay, literally. When you register at the online site, you don’t charge anything to a credit card; instead you pay the guide what the tour was worth to you at the end of your time.
Technically, we call that a pay-what-you-want model, but the owners of Free Tours by Foot explain it this way: “We believe that everybody should be able to enjoy an educational tour experience and discover and learn about this great city of Charleston, regardless of your budget.”
They offer a variety of topics ranging from historic talks to food-based tours at their website. Pick yours and enjoy hoofing it across Charleston’s most interesting corners.
