The Preservation Society of Charleston Presents the Fall Tours & Master Series

In its 45th year, our annual celebrated Fall Tours, including our new Master Series, takes guests deeper into the heart of this unique and charming city. Through a wide variety of tour options, guests experience rich and rare glimpses into its historic architecture, glorious gardens, and diverse cultural heritage.
The Piazzas and Gardens Tour and the Master Garden Series are especially intriguing for garden enthusiasts everywhere. According to E.T.H. Shaffer’s book entitled Carolina Gardens, Charleston is referred to as the “City of Enchanted Gardens.” Today, the garden tradition continues and guests are invited to go behind the garden gates of some of the finest gardens on the peninsula.
