“Loved the walking tour!! We found this company online because nothing seemed open on New Years Day. We really lucked out. This is a great outfit, and our tour guide, Evans, is a superb tour guide!! He is a native of Charleston, witty and knowledgable, and was completely entertaining for the two hours. I would strongly recommend this tour, this tour operator, and Evans!!”
“We embarked on a walking tour of historic Charleston with Steve Bailey. Steve is a Charleston native and traces his ancestry to its founding. He is very knowledgeable and full of energy and enthusiasm. Because of his roots in the city, he knows all of the historic places, has contacts with key local people (introduced us to Joseph Riley, the former, longstanding mayor who did much to further the city during his tenure), brought us into the city council chamber which is a must see and, in general, made our tour exciting and very informative.”
“My best friend and I just traveled to Charleston to celebrate our mutual birthdays, and luckily had Amy as our guide for the historic walking tour. I have never encountered a tour guide with so much enthusiasm and knowledge. I would highly recommend this tour (and Amy!) to anyone who would like to get to know the history and layout of the city. It’s a great way to start your visit, this way you know the spots and attractions that you would like to spend more time investigating.”
