Without a doubt, the best Grayline tour we have ever participated in. The tour driver was a 31 year resident of Charleston, and extremely well versed in the city history, and customized our tour to include detail about architecture and the many churches along the route. We went down streets and saw parts of Charleston that we would have never attempted on our own. Highly recommend. A good time was had by all.

Our guide was very kind and had a lot of information for us! The only downside was the mask he had to wear made it difficult to hear. But I don’t think there’s a way around that.
