Immersive and fun way to see Charleston!

We loved the mix of historical facts and stories told as we walked through Charleston. Our guide also showed us many of the unique trees and flowers unique to Charleston...it was a great mix of information that provides a wonderful experience! Our guide was also entertaining as he delivered the information! Note: I had my 12 and 10 year olds with me. My 12 year old loved it but my 10 year old was on the edge - he was a trooper for us but was getting a little antsy. Just mentioning for any parents considering.

Our tour guide, Amy, was knowledgeable, personal and fun! We have taken a couple of tours in previous years, really appreciated the history of Charles Town, why the investors picked this area, how the Native American tribe helped and how the natural harbor was important.
