The history of our country's earliest years envelops you as you wind your way through this beautiful city. The information that you'd rarely come upon in books, regarding the 'truth' as it happened here, was delivered by our guide Dennis in a way that captivated and enthralled young and old alike. You just can't come to Charleston and miss this opportunity.

We did the tour, because friends came to visit from out of town and it was a great experience. Dennis, our guide was phenomenal. He was informative and funny at the same time. Our friends (first language is not English) said, he was the first guide that they completely understood. We would definitely recommend the tour and Dennis.

Tour guide was terrible. Tell us the history, it’s not about you and your opinions. We have done many historical tours but this was the worst.

We came to Charleston for our anniversary. This was our first time visiting. We took this tour on our first day. The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. The tour was nice. Make sure to bring water if it’s hot out. It can be a little taxing in the heat and humidity.
