Mark was amazing! He is an expert about Charleston! Highly recommended as the first thing to do when you arrive. It gives a broad perspective of the town and its history. It all makes sense after that! Lovely 2 hours walk!

Very informative and entertaining. Mark was an excellent and passionate tour guide. We loved hearing the stories of his grandfather's history lessonsas well.

Our tour guide (Dennis) was excellent! Very knowledgeable and humorous. So much history to enjoy in Charleston and he nailed it.

As an architect I love historical buildings especially when I get to experience the space in person rather than study them in textbooks. I was a little disappointed not to be inside any of the places we saw, but I soaked in a bit of local culture which I always welcome.

Kay presented a super organized tour, plus she was clear, easy to hear, and very friendly. She presented a great history of Charleston from the early colonial period to post civil war. I learned a lot and it was a great way for our son, who’s just moved to the area, to learn the history of Charleston. Highly recommend!
