Owner description: Hi, my name is Brian Simms. My family has been in the area for 10 generations. Charleston Sole offers two types of tours. Our All About Charleston tour features history, culture and the architecture of the area. Our Houses of Worship tour concentrates on the many backgrounds who settled the "Holy City" and the history of the beautiful stone carvings and symbolism behind many famous Charlestonian graves. We do enter a few structures during our tour. There is a rich history and culture I would like to share and look forward to showing you the sights of our beautiful city, creating an experience you will remember for years to come!

I think I learned more on this tour than in a year of history class and this was way more fun! This is led by a History teacher who makes it come alive.

Charleston Sole was extremely accommodating. Due to problems with our flights to Charleston we had to reschedule our tour three times. This occurred without any fuss or bother. Finn was our guide for the day. He was well versed in both history and architecture and displayed a genuine love of his city. We took the All about Charleston tour. I... More

I couldn't be happier with the walking tour of Charleston that my group of 14 experienced with Brian Sims. He brings to light all of the historical aspects of Charleston from its inception through the Civil War with great clarity and interest. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone interested in learning more about Charleston on their visit.

Great love of history and Charleston. Well worth the money. I would definitely go again and I am sure the information would be expanded. Terrific grasp of the history.

We wish we would have done this upon our arrival to Charleston instead of the next to last day of our visit.

Charleston Sole came highly recommended on Trip Advisor, and I'm glad I listened to other reviewers and booked our tour with them because we loved it! Fin was our guide, and he was... More
