Tour was on time, bus was clean the tour guide was easy to understand and very knowledgeable. Slowed or stopped at all the sights he was speaking about. Would tell everyone to take the tour. Only 90 minutes, and I was able to walk back to the sights and take a closer look and take pictures.

The guide was very accommodating since our tour was later and he let us get in his earlier tour which gave us time to visit some places later. The tour was great! Very knowledgeable and courteous. Stopped at the waterfront for pictures. Air-conditioned bus on a very hot afternoon made it perfect. Definitely recommend!

Taking this tour on our first day in Charleston was probably the best decision we made on our visit. Charleston is a town seen best by walking... BUT I highly recommend this tour to get the lay of the land as well as learn about it so you can know the “why” of what you’re seeing before you start exploring. Our guide, Nick, gave us a thorough tour of the city while delivering an excellent history as well as providing us with tips and hints for getting around as well as things to see and do; we often found ourselves referring back to what we learned from Nick as we continued to enjoy our weekend.
