Private guided tours, tailored to specific areas of interest, are offered to groups of 1 to 7 people.
Tailored Tours of Aiken is a guided tour service that provides driving tours for private parties from two to seven people. We offer several different types of tours such as driving or walking; historic Aiken, Aiken & a Plantation, Winter Cottages, a special tour combining historic and current Aiken for those who are thinking of moving here, and now even a walking ghost tour at night. But if you don't see a tour that interests you, call and let us accommodate you. After all, our tours are TAILORED to your interests.
Tailored Tours are available Monday through Saturday throughout the year. Sundays can be reserved but only with a 48 hour advanced booking notice. All tours are given by an experienced, certified guide who is knowledgeable about Aiken history and Southern history. We recommend you reserve your tour by calling or emailing us. All tours are for private single groups, so time slots fill quickly.
We want all our visitors to have the best time possible in our beloved city and we look forward to serving you soon.

DECEMBER 7, 1941 the day our country was attacked. Great men and women, 2,280 servicemen and women along with 68 civilians were killed, 1,109 were wounded. Today we still honor those who were so viciously killed while they slept or lounged on that Sunday morning; and we pay homage to those who fought valiantly to revenge those deaths and keep our country free from others who would do us harm.
Tour with us to see the beauty of Aiken and learn the history of Our city, then be a part of the Christmas magic at the Tree Lighting . . .
They saying goes, "If you love what you do, you never work a day in your life," and for us, this is so true. We love Aiken and love sharing it with our fabulous friends - the best ever in the world.
Rain, sun, clouds, or clear skies, we always look forward to seeing dear friends and making new ones on our tours. THEY are what makes life so wonderful.
Our guests are always so gracious and kind and beautiful both inside and out, that we love to show them off. But some are camera shy and that's okay. For them we share sights of what we experienced on their tours. Thank you all for making our day so much brighter just by your presence!
Horses, be they in the flesh or painted, are always appreciated and enjoyed. This one is outside of Woodside Plantation.
Summer heat makes us smile especially when we have such fine guests on tour. From Canada to Florida, Charleston to Chicago, we have had the finest folks that ever stepped foot in Aiken. We just love our new friends!
Today while touring we were treated to another exciting sight of a young hawk feasting on a lizard. As we came down the road it stayed on the side and when we were right upon it, it flew to the fence, paused, then flew off. For my guests who had never seen a hawk up close and personal, this was a rare and special treat.
Come tour with us and see what other special and/or rare sights you get to see!

Our Haunted Aiken tours are fun and sometimes amazing when we get orbs in photos, our EMF meters going crazy, and sometimes a fleeting shadow seen. But the best part for us is our guests. Anxious to learn about the dark side of Aiken and to find lingering spirits, we enjoy our guests both young and old.
As we've said before and will always say, our guests are the very best in the world and we love showing them Aiken and sometimes even learning from them as well. Thank you to each of y'all who made our days wonderful and for making what we do fun.

Okay, y'all, not only did one of our tour guests capture a moving orb in a cemetery last night but one was also caught camera at a funeral home we stop at. Then today while going through our own photos, we saw this: at the base of the headstone on the left is a red streak of light. Two photos were taken back to back without flash and only the first one had it. No, there were no flashlights from that direction, no lighting, just picture #1 with a red light on the stone and picture #2 without. This doesn't happen on all our tours but when things occur we get excited!
Awesome ghost tour last night! A gentleman took photos in the cemetery and captured a moving orb; EMF meters went crazy in spots they normally don’t; and at one place two of the three meters went crazy, one teen took the “broken” one from her sister and it immediately went crazy too! Yes, last night was great!
It looks like the last of the rain has left our city so YES! we are going to hold the tour tonight! All those with reservations, please feel free to meet at 8:00pm in front of the Carriage House Inn at 139 Laurens Street NW. See y'all there!

We had a really fun Haunted Aiken ghost tour last night with this beautiful bunch of spirit seekers!
