Private Charleston History and Photo Tour for 2
Experience Charleston’s incomparable beauty, unique history and flourishing preservation with your private guide whose knowledge of Charleston heritage, culture, and architecture is unmatched. Your 2.5-hour private VIP walking tour can be customized to what interests you most, which may include magnificent mansions, mysterious graveyards, graceful gardens, Revolutionary and Civil War sites, secret passageways, cobblestone streets, slave history, various locations to capture unique photographs, and photographic tips on how to compose the perfect shot.
Enjoy a specially created 6-course dinner menu with expertly chosen wine pairings for two at this 4-starrestaurant, recipient of the AAA 4-Diamond award and Distinguished Restaurants of North America Award. The Charleston Grill, located within the Charleston Place Hotel, offers contemporary Lowcountry cuisine featuring fresh local produce, seafood and game, prepared with a French accent. Emphasis is placed on the quality of the ingredients, unique presentations and sophisticated textures.
Executive Chef Michelle Weaver’s ambitious four-sectioned menu offers appetizers and entrees grouped into distinct moods: Pure, Lush, Cosmopolitan, and Southern. “Pure” focuses on fresh ingredients in simple preparations, “Lush” delivers lavish French fare, “Cosmopolitan” explores exotic and imaginative cuisine, and “Southern” is the Grill’s take on local favorites. The selection changes regularly, with flavors ranging from a veal porterhouse with foie gras (Lush) to a Carolina hen with grits and fried livers (Southern) to the international fusion of shrimp sauteed with Thai chilies and coconut cream (Cosmopolitan). Rich dishes like shrimp and catfish hoecakes with fried oysters and tartar remoulade provide a hint of the kind of Lowcountry fare served. After dinner, enjoy the soft sounds of live jazz of The Quentin Baxter Jazz Trio in an elegant, but casual setting.
