An oasis away from the city.
Bring your family, bring your friends and explore beyond the peninsula to really see all that Charleston has to offer. This tour is a great way to get out of the city and enjoy a worry free day of fun on three of the local islands that are a true taste of the lowcountry. Your locally born and raised driver will add their unique spin (and stories) to the tour to make it truly one of a kind. You'll be picked up on *Thursdays at the Charleston Visitor's Center downtown at 9:30AM and enjoy a beautiful drive out to McLeod Plantation on James Island where you'll be immersed in local history on a tour of the immaculately kept buildings and grounds from 10-11:15AM. Your next stop will be John's Island, where you will marvel at a centuries old live oak tree, affectionately know as the "Angel Oak". From there a short drive will take you to Wadmalaw Island where you will be treated to lunch (you'll select your choice upon booking) along with a wine-tasting at Charleston's only domestic winery, Deep Water Vineyard. After visiting the winery, you'll take a short walk across the patio to Firefly Distillery where you'll enjoy samples of your choice of 6 (out of 27) different spirits. Included in your tastings are a souvenir wine glass and a souvenir shot glass. After a quick stop in our gift shop, one of the best in the area for certified South Carolina goods, your driver will carry you back downtown and drop you off at the Visitor's Center around 3PM.
