My wife and I have been on dozens of tours through Viator, in and out of the US. We have also been to Charleston many times and done tours here. This was one of the strangest and unappealing we have been on. First, I think it is highly inappropriate to show private residence courtyards and gardens as part of a tour. Second, this is less a walking tour and far less a "historic" tour and more a flower and churches tour. The guide Amy spent most of her time pointing at maps and mock ups she brought with her rather than focus on the beautiful city with a wonderful history that Charleston is. I cannot recommend this tour and would not do another through this company.

Thank you for your review. We take all of our reviews very seriously and use them to improve when possible. The guide assigned to your tour is one of our most popular guides with over 15 years of experience as a guide in Charleston and consistently receives praise for her story telling abilities as well as her knowledge of the history of Charleston and its historical figures. She does her absolute best to capture the imagination of her group using props and pointing out great photo opportunities all the while exploring the rich history of our beautiful city. We understand that each of our guests will have a unique set of expectations and we regret that you felt that the guide did not live up to yours. We would very much appreciate the opportunity to provide you with a complimentary tour with a different tour guide the next time you are in town. Please contact us directly to schedule. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Charleston and will be back to visit again soon!

It was very interesting talk and the guide took the time to explain and answer all the questions. We were told at the beginning of the talk that he will not wear a mask while talking and if that made us uncomfortable we could get a full refund. But having said that there was still no need for the guide to remove his mask and come closer than 6 feet of a guest to answer a question. Please at least maintain the 6 feet distance and do not physically touch/pull any guest, even for dramatic purposes. Very irresponsible behavior during covid times.

Thank you for your nice comments about your recent tour with us. We are always open to suggestions on how we can better meet the expectations of our guests. We will be passing your feedback on to our team and will use it to make improvements where necessary.
