My family had just spent a day in St. Augustine and had taken a few tours while there. We were most delighted with the interactive, personal tour we received while there. We decided to stop in Charleston SC on our way back home to soak up some more rich history but we wanted to try to get that small group... More

We were fortunate to spend more than two hours with Joyce on a walking tour. He knowledge of and passion for Charleston was very evident, and we truly felt that it was the best part of our trip (and that's saying something, when you're talking about a city with as much to offer as Charleston)! She also provided lots of... More

Our first visit to Charleston was amazing. Joyce Weir, our tour guide, was extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Charleston and the buildings/homes along with architecture. Joyce is a professional photographer showing us how to capture the shot by using camera on our phones. If your looking for a tour to take and can walk this is definitely... More

On the hottest day of the year thus far, we were so entranced by Joyce's tour that we (almost!) forgot the oppressive weather. That's a strong endorsement for the quality of the experience. Highly recommended!

Joyce takes you on a short but fully packed two hour walking tour of historic Charleston. This woman is an encyclopedia of information. She is very personable and engaging. It is obvious this is her passion. She offers good photo opportunities along with a few angles and perspectives I would say this is more a historical tour than a photo... More

You can't go wrong with Joyce. A great way way to see Charleston. Joyce gives you 2 tours in one. One through the eyes of history one through the eyes of a photographer. Except for the heat all was perfect.

This is just an individual woman giving walking tours, not some big outfit so since there was just three of us signed up that day we had a great, personalized tour and could always see and hear what she was talking about. Joyce is super knowledgeable about the area and history and even some personal tidbits about shop and homeowners.... More

We took the morning tour to try to avoid some of the heat of the day. As it was it was a beautiful morning for a walk around town. Joyce was very energetic and knowledgeable. She also gave us little tips on how to get the best pictures. It was a very interesting tour. Definitely doesn't feel like you walk... More

This was an excellent choice for any Charleston tour. Joyce is a great historian and tour guide. Joyce really knows this city and being a photographer she knows the great angles and key scenic shots. It is a relaxed pace, informative and fun. Five star rating on this tour!

I have taken Photo tours before and ended up getting pics of me taken by photographer and then another that spent more time with photography 101 than any history. Joyce offered what I was looking for- a history tour that took me to photogenic spots. I read a history book and toured before but learned even more on this excursion.... More
