The City of Charleston has set the American standard for guide certification with requirements for continuing education and rigorous testing. The tourism ordinance and guide-license process have been studied by cities throughout the United States seeking to achieve Charleston’s standard of quality.
Of the over five hundred licensed guides in the city, CCGS has personally trained and built a special relationship with a select few who meet our standard of excellence. With a command of history and a passion for the city, our staff of guides represent the most competent tour professionals in the Charleston area.
