Joseph Manigault House

350 Meeting Street, Charleston, South Carolina

The Basics

An impressive central hall, with its spiral staircase leading to the upper floors, greets visitors entering the Joseph Manigault House. Many of the rooms have been restored to what they might have looked like in the 19th century, complete with original color schemes and a collection of French, American, and English period furniture. Entrance to the house also includes access to a period garden and several historical outbuildings, such as stables, kitchen, and former slave quarters.

Choose between a single admission to the Joseph Manigault House or a combination ticket that includes the Heyward-Washington House or the Charleston Museum as well. Some bus tours also include an optional upgrade that includes a visit to the house.

Charleston City Bus Tour with Optional Joseph Manigault or Charleston Museum
Our driver had more the a dozen years tour experience. Took us to so many places and he had great information about each. If you asked other questions he had the answers from the city history, architecture to local restaurants. Well with the time and cost.

Charleston City Bus Tour with Optional Joseph Manigault or Charleston Museum
Our guide was very informative and we got a very good overview of the history of Charleston. She spoke so everyone could hear her and allowed us to get out at the water front to walk around and snap some pictures.

The most memorable part of the tour was how comical, knowledgeable, and awesome our tour guide Valerie was with her story telling tales. She made sure that everyone on the bus felt at home in her hometown of Charleston.

Charleston City Bus Tour with Optional Joseph Manigault or Charleston Museum
We booked this tour online, it was easy. Our confirmation came right away and we were all set. We got to the pick up spot early because that was a little bit of a question, where the pick up was. The tour bus was on time, air conditioned and the tour guide was informative.

Charleston City Bus Tour with Optional Joseph Manigault or Charleston Museum
This is the second tour we have done with your company. We appreciate the fact that in the summer, guests welcome the comfort of an air conditioned bus. We also found that this was a more extensive tour than with the buggy tours. You really don’t know what tour you will get with the buggy tour. The last 2 we did with family were disappointing. So you are now our go-to for out of town guests.
