The Real Charleston, SC Isn’t In Your Guidebook

Most visitors only scratch the surface of Charleston.

They do a Ft. Sumter tour, visit a plantation, and go the Battery, and think they’ve seen Charleston.

My goal is to get you to see beyond the obvious attractions in the city, dig beneath the surface, and find Charleston’s soul.

Hi. I’m Kevin McQuade!

I am an award-winning concierge that has spent two decades advising guests in how to see the real Charleston.

Serving as a renown hotel concierge an expert of all things Charleston, it would be my pleasure to help you plan an unforgettable trip to the Lowcountry.

Online Reviews Are Not Customized to You

You spend hours researching your trip to Charleston, SC–where to go for dinner, what to do–only to be disappointed later.

While it may be the perfect choice for your friends or neighbors, the real question is…….is it the right choice for YOU?

That’s where I come in.

Unlike the Internet, I take the time to ask you questions to find out who you are and what you’re like so your restaurants and tours are customized to YOU.

How Will I Enhance Your Trip?

As a concierge at Secret Charleston, I get asked a lot, “How will hiring you enhance my trip to Charleston, SC?”

I understand why people are skeptical. I get it.

It’s because time and again you’ve asked the concierge for “authentic and local” and instead you got “tourist-friendly.”

But you no longer want to go where the masses go. You want to be surrounded by locals, not tourists.

It’s the typical touristy manufactured experience that will keep you from really seeing Charleston’s hidden secrets.

I suggest authentic, real places where the tourist masses haven’t found yet. You’ll visit places so off the beaten track that even your friends who’ve lived here for 20 years won’t know about them!

Experience Charleston like a TRAVELER, not like a TOURIST
