Our tour guide, Finn, was exceptional! We’ve taking historical tours in all different cities, and Finn was by far the most pleasant and thoughtful guide, absolutely the best. He welcomed our questions and really catered to our interests. The tour itself is a great blend of everything - settlement history, architecture, wars, everyday life - 10 / 10 tour! Thank you Finn!

Description of the tour was misleading

The description of the tour stated that it included admissions to the Old Exchange & Provost Dungeon, the Old Slave Mart Museum, and the Nathaniel Russel House. This was not true. We saw the outside of the buildings but we were not able to tour the buildings. I alerted the tour guide to the discrepancy and asked him to change the tour description.

The tour was very informative. Our tour guide, Fin was a retired History teacher so he gave us a lot of insight and encouraged questions. It was HOT and he seemed to tailor the walk so that we made stops in historic buildings that offered a respite from the heat. I would certainly recommend Charleston Sole Walking Tours to anyone.
