An Enjoyable Experience All Around

Jeff was knowledgeable and interesting on a host of topics. He knew the history, architecture, botanical, and economics of everything Charleston related. Well worth the money if you want a leisurely paced tour of all things Charleston.

Jeff, our guide, was very knowledgeable, friendly, & organized in his presentation. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing this beautiful city, took loads of pictures but they are not yet ready for presentation. As I quickly reviewed them, it brought back all of Jeff’s remarks. My friends & I are very happy we made this decision to drive from Myrtle Beach to experience this tour & highly recommend it to all.

Only way to see Charleston today.

For a very informative and fact-filled two hours, this is the only way to get to know the city in air- conditioned comfort, while limiting the amount of people you share the tour with, especially on a hot day with rain chances. Had done the carriage tour before and, while quite pleasant, not as personalized or comfortable as this option. While at a price premium, all 4 of us thought it worthwhile.

The perfect way to get introduced to Charleston

We chose this tour because it was a relaxing way to get oriented in the city. Being picked up at our hotel was such a luxury and we were surprised at how much we were able to see in 2 hours. Without this tour we would not have seen some of Charleston because we chose not to rent a car. We highly recommend Jeff, he is personable and loves what he does.
