All About Charleston is taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously.  With this in mind, we have discontinued our mobile van tours at the present time.  This is due to the close quarters inside our van during tours.  Affected tours include: "Notebook" tour, "Movie Location" tour and "Historic Charleston" van tour.  This course of action is being taken to protect the public and also our tour guides.  Walking tours will be offered beginning on June 1, 2020.

Our apologies for any cancellations and we ask for your understanding given the circumstances.
