The Charleston Tea Party Private Tour would like to thank Patricia Cleveland Peck for the lovely and informative article in the Financial Times of London. Please see full article here.
Our day together in Charleston is one of my favorite memories as well.

Charleston Tea Party Private Tour
This tour is for the discerning visitor who wishes to experience Old Charleston as a guest, not a tourist. Laura Wichmann Hipp is your knowledgeable and charming guide. A native who loves and knows well the city in which she was born, Laura takes discerning visitors to her friends’ private homes and gardens, in fact caters each tour to the special interests of her visitors. This is the ultimate insider experience and a rare chance for a visitor to see the “real Charleston.”
Tours week days from 9:00 AM to 12:00. The tour ends at lunchtime with an invitation to Tea at Laura’s home overlooking the Ashley River.
For reservations or more information: Laura Wichmann Hipp 843-577-5896.
Charleston: Ghosts, Gullah and Tea
The Charleston Tea Party Private Tour sounds about as genteel as it gets. The brochure features a photo of guide Laura Wichmann Hipp (“married to G. Preston Hipp of Charleston”) in a broad-brimmed hat, looking ready to snatch Rhett Butler away from an unsuspecting Scarlett O’Hara. It promises to emphasize architecture and preservation in the city’s historic district, with a grand finale of tea served in the guide’s private garden.
