A moderately pleasing two hours.

I thought the tour was pretty good, but overall pretty average (which is what Viator says three stars means). The first bar, an Irish pub, was fine. The second bar was more impressive, with good drinks and a nice outdoor space. The guide, Adam, was very low key. Hard to hear at times too, even though there were only 4 of us. The info he shared here and there was interesting but not particularly engaging. He knows his history. But he needs work in mastering the entertainment aspect of being a guide. And personally, I don't think it's appropriate to share details of your near death heart problems from the prior year. Not to make light of them, but when I am on vacation and on a tour, why would I want to hear about something like that? It certainly didn't occur to me to share with the group that my mom is dying of cancer. Maybe I'm too much of a review purist, but I'm not going to gloss over things just because the guide tells you to make sure to only write a 5 star review ("just kidding!" - but not really) as he passes out a freebie momento. Ditto when you get a follow up text message asking you to only write a 5 star review. It's not fair to guides and tours that are truly exceptional. At the end of the day, the tour was fine. Average. Didn't exceed expectations, but didn't especially fall short of them either. If we all just hand out 5 star reviews like nothing, what's the point?

Drinking History of Charleston

Great history lessons by a knowledgeable Charlestonite. Could have provided a bit more food at the two drinking stops.
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Hi Richard, so glad you enjoyed the history. Both Adam and myself have designed this experience to be a refreshing look at Charleston that is not scripted and allows for the engagement of the entire group at our two bar stops to not only go over the drinking history of our city but also allow an opportunity to go back and forth with your local guide. As per the description only a small snack is provided. For future guests please note this is not a culinary tour, the focus is on the “History and Hops” :). Safe travels !
