Travel Writer Jill Paris Launches Unique Charleston Walking Tours

CHARLESTON, South Carolina, USA – Eclectic Tours of Charleston, the charming new tour company created by travel writer and licensed city tour guide Jill Paris, launches September 4, 2018, in historic downtown Charleston.

The current duo of exclusive two-hour walking tours not found anywhere else in the city are the Ladies of Charleston tour and the Love Stories of Charleston tour especially appealing to women of all ages, but men are absolutely welcome. “My idea was to create unusual tours that complement the city’s allure in a most beguiling way with unforgettable stories and subject matter,” Jill says. “The downtown hotel and retail community have already been incredibly supportive noting that my tours are ideal for their guests including Wedding and Bachelorette parties, Ladies’ Clubs, Girls’ weekends, Ladies who lunch, Honeymooners, and of course, die-hard romantics like me.”

Price of tour: $24

Hours of operation: Monday – Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Tours begin at 158 Meeting Street, Charleston, at the corner of Cumberland Street
