Enjoyable, informative, interesting, very worth while experience!
, Sep 2021
Al, the owner, gave us our tour. HE WAS FANTASTIC! He was born and raised in Charleston, and really knows history, architecture, trees and plant life of the area. Impressively, he reads his group and customized our tour to our interests. We came away with an experience much greater than we had anticipated. Very worth while, highly recommend this walking tour to anyone who has sincere desire to learn more about Charleston. You won’t be disappointed with Al’s tour.
Great, historic tour.

Having a PhD and being a history professor at the Citadel, Eric, our tour guide, was a wealth of knowledge. This is the tour for you if you want the history of Charleston. There was only one other couple with us so it was like having a private tour.
Must do activity in Charleston

Eric is an exceptional historian and used his extensive knowledge to weave a picture of old charleston from the earliest days forward. The best guided historical tour I have ever had. He was very personable and not rushed. I would say this tour was the highlight of our trip to Charleston.
Great Introduction to Charleston

Eric delivered a fantastic experience! My wife and I never expected our tour to be led by a PhD in History who did his dissertation on the South Carolina legislature during the Civil War. Adding to this, he is a lecturer at The Citadel. He provided an excellent framework for our subsequent visits to Ft. Sumter and Ft. Moultrie. He had so much to offer that our tour extended well past the 2 hours detailed in the description which was just fine with everyone on the tour. Given the small numbers involved, we were able to actively engage with Eric and he with us.

Thank you for the great review. At Charleston Old Walled City Tours we convey history that is both true and accurate. We are neither Woke Revisionists nor Confederate apologists, we tell it like it was. We have a deeper understanding than most of the thought processes and the mindset of the times to convey a true picture of events. Some events were glorious, some were shameful, and you can be guaranteed the full picture. Again thanks for the review, and let others know, send them our way!
We fell in love with Charleston as a result of Eric‘s enthusiasm
