Well worth the 20+ minute boat ride to the island. Our tour guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable , professional , and personable. The visit to Fort Sumter was well worth the price and time. We were honored to be on the island for the flag raising which was very moving and memorable.

Our tour guide Russell was fantastic. He was able to give us all of the details of Charleston and Fort Sumpter and the roles they played at the beginning of the Civil War. The Fort Sumpter tour is a must and I recommend your company highly.

Nice ride over and I thought there was plenty of time to explore the site. Of course we skipped the park ranger as we knew enough of the history prior to arriving so that helped.

You can feel the history among the battlements. Such an undertaking just to build the fortress is amazing. I wish we could have spent another half hour there.

It was a beautiful day to tour and learn all the historical facts of Charleston-
