Explore Charleston

Charleston homes, churches, gardens, and more serve as your backdrop as you answer trivia questions to guide yourself from one stop to the next via our text-based trivia hunt app. These hunts combine the fun of a scavenger hunt, the challenge of trivia, and the flexibility of a self-guided walking tour of Charleston.

Begin in the heart of downtown near Charleston’s open-air City Market. Start whenever it is convenient and pause any time for a break, another tour, or a bite to eat. Tour trivia questions are sent directly to your phone, so you control the pace of the adventure. Use your GPS, favorite search engine, or simply the gift of observation to help you get from one stop to the next. And, don't worry, the trivia questions are multiple choice to help you along the way.

Client Testimonials

  • A Charleston resident suggested a Traveling Ink concierge might be able to help me. It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was one of the best pieces of advice I could have received. My friends thought I was an organizational wizard even though I kept telling them it was Traveling Ink, not me.

    ~ Nicky H.
  • We so enjoyed our time in Charleston. Thank you for all your insight! I am recommending your services to everyone I know who is traveling to Charleston!

    ~Kathryn C.
  • Traveling Ink planned the three full days we would have in Charleston, how we would get from one place to another, places to eat, and what the costs would be. To add to the challenge, we had to change the day of one of the main attractions because rain had been predicted. They handled all the changes with out missing a step.

    ~ Harriett H.
  • These Charleston pros do a phenomenal job in any setting. Audra was our point person and is a pleasure to work with. She is laid back and can work with any request.
