We all enjoyed our tour of Charleston with Jeff He took us places that we would have never seen on our own. His knowledge of Charleston history is impressive. A great way to see the city and learn a little at the same time. All In the comfort of a large air conditioned SUV.
Great !

Great experience. Jeff knows a lot of history. Clean, cool vehicle to tour in. Jeff was very courteous and very knowledgeable about homes, churches, and places that you wouldn’t necessarily get on other tours.

Great overall experience. Jeff is well versed on the history of Charleston, he’s friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. We were able to enjoy learning about historical Charleston from the back seat of his very comfortable and climate controlled SUV. Well worth the cost and then some’
Great experience!

Jeffery was an awesome tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and it’s history. I loved the older parts of town and the history. He gave great tips on restaurants and places to visit while in Charleston. I would definitely recommend this tour.

I think we saw every inch of Charleston! Jeff gives a great tour. He's very knowledgeable and personable. Well worth the price for a private tour.
Highlight of our trip

From the right on time pickup to the drop off, the Charleston in a Nutshell with Jeff Zimmerman was top notch. We learned so much about city and its extensive history! Jeff is an excellent speaker and his wealth of knowledge was unparalleled. We booked this tour as an overview of the beautiful city of Charleston but this tour was so much more than that. The two hours flew by as we enjoyed the sights in comfort while Jeff told us about the city. We couldn’t pick a favorite part because it so was informative and we saw so many parts of the city. Excellent value for the money. We highly recommend Jeff, you will not be disappointed! Best part of our getaway to Charleston.
Great tour!!

Jeff was a great tour guide. Asked our group what we were most interested in at the beginning and then gave us a great history lesson and architectual tour. It was a hot day of the tour, so it was also very nice to be riding in a private car. It also allowed us to see more than a walking or carriage tour. The group highly recommends him!!!
