My wife and I took the Civil War tour with Oyster Point on our first day in Charleston. This was a great activity for our first day in town (it helped us learn to navigate the city), and was incredibly insightful and educational as well. Bill, our tour guide, was both knowledgeable and passionate. He framed all the sights we saw in the proper historical context, and helped us think about what it would have been like to live in Charleston during this tumultuous period. He also told our group many anecdotes about the people of the time, which made it really memorable and special. This is stuff you won't read in a history book. I think these stories helped to hold our attention for the entire 90 minutes + (not always an easy feat on a history tour). I would recommend this to anyone interested in Civil War history or United States history in general. Even if you aren't a history buff it was a great walking tour and a unique way to explore Charleston. Incredible bang for your buck---can't recommend highly enough.
