If you're interested in Civil War history, you don't want to miss this tour. Our guide on the approximately 20 minute ferry ride to Fort Sumter was extremely knowledgeable, so much so that we opted to tour the fort on our own rather than follow a guide there. What remains of the fort gives a good feel for what it must have been, and the views from there of the other forts are clearly marked and provide plenty of information. We had an hour before catching the ferry back, but I could have spent two hours or more in the museum alone. The original US flag that flew there is quite moving.
This was a fantastic way to see and "feel" the history of the harbor! We had a beautiful day under blue skies. The guide was very personable and interesting, talking for 90 minutes without missing a beat, including some of his own experiences in the area.
This is history come to life. It’s not difficult to imagine the circumstances in which our forbearers found themselves.
This was a great tour we loved all the history. Well worth the time and money.
Great tour - we loved learning more about the history of Charleston!
