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 History Sightseeing Bus Tour with Joseph Manigault House Option
The tour guide was very informative and he gave us a great tour of the city. In addition, we had tickets to tour the Mansion. We were not informed that the house tour runs on the hour and arrived there at the half hour. Therefore, we had to wait 30 minutes for the next tour.

Charleston History Sightseeing Bus Tour with Joseph Manigault House Option
I believe “Bonnie” was our driver/ narrator. Best job ever ! We’ve done many tour bus city trips and this was the best. Saw far more of the city neighborhoods than expected, plus all the must-see stops. Well done.

Charleston History Sightseeing Bus Tour with Joseph Manigault House Option
Without a doubt, the best Grayline tour we have ever participated in. The tour driver was a 31 year resident of Charleston, and extremely well versed in the city history, and customized our tour to include detail about architecture and the many churches along the route. We went down streets and saw parts of Charleston that we would have never attempted on our own. Highly recommend. A good time was had by all.

Charleston History Sightseeing Bus Tour with Joseph Manigault House Option
Our guide was very kind and had a lot of information for us! The only downside was the mask he had to wear made it difficult to hear. But I don’t think there’s a way around that.
