Informative tour of Charleston

"The historic tour of Charleston was an enjoyable, informative experience. The guide was very knowledgeable on the area and was able to show us some of the more quirky parts of Charleston. She also made a strong effort to ensure there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions and answered all of the questions asked. I would recommend this tour!"

Great tour! Amy is great!

"Our walk started at the beautiful city hall building. Amy, our tour guide, was adorably sweet, dressed in all shades of pink and beige from her hat to her boots. She's very very knowledgeable and friendly and answered all of our questions with grace and authority. You can tell she really loves her city and loves sharing it with visitors. My husband is so convinced that he now wants to move here. Great job Amy! Thank you for an amazingly insiteful tour."

VERY informative tour

"Second walking tour of Charleston and I would say amazing. Our guide, Evans, is a born and raised Charleston guy. He knows everything, I actually took notes so I could take my husband on the walk the next day. Good stories. Only one thing is 2 hours is enough by then everyone is brain dead. I would highly recommend this tour, plus he guided several of us to a restaurant with a fabulous lunch, Poogan’s porch."

Hidden Places

"I have been on several tours of Charleston, but Amy walked us by and through places I had never been as well as a few of the places other tours include. After finding out where your members were from and their interests, she included information in her tour that touched on those. She also provided a list of favorite places both downtown and in nearby areas. Though we saw many places, I didn’t feel like I was rushed from one place to the next."
