      Very fun tour
      Jill was very funny, interesting, and knowledgeable. While on the tour, I had a question she didn't know the answer to. She had me to give her my email address. She is going to find out and let me know.

      No Art on thus tour! (No Wine either)
      No - just no. Don't call it an Art tour unless you show us some Art!? This badly named/misleading tour was just a run-of-the-mill walking tour of the downtown and French Quarter neighborhoods, and the guide would point out houses that artists of past centuries had lived in. Huh? Oh, and one house that a famous rich art benefactor lived in (Guggenheim!) Ok so you are gonna show us houses instead of artwork: how about discussing the architecture or the period or the craftsperson? Ya know - art. To make matters worse - our tour guide's spurious understanding of Charleston history was maddening. To brush off the entire history and experience of slavery in Charleston by calling them "servants" is just wrong! Not once but 3 times! I knew more about Charleston's history than she did and I have only been here for 4 days! I longed to correct her at every turn. Book ANYONE else but this one.

      Wonderful time on a unique walking tour
      This is the first time my wife and I have visited Charleston. What a beautiful and charming city! My wife and I enjoy unique adventures and experiences. I thought she would enjoy the Amazing Ladies of Charleston Walking Tour. We met our guide, Jill, and learned we were the only ones on the tour that day. What a wonderful experience! Jill was so friendly, open, and knowledgeable! We had a relaxing, interesting, engaging, and fun time. The next time we visit Charleston we will contact Jill for another tour.

      Private Tour
      My wife and I took this tour in 1/15/21. We were surprised to learn that we were the only ones to have booked the tour. To Jill’s credit, she did not cancel or reschedule the tour as other tour companies do. Also, rain was forecast and could have been a problem. We grabbed our raincoats and umbrellas and carried on. We did get rain, but not enough to make us stop. My wife and I grew up in the Charleston area, but moved away over 40 years ago. Jill was able to work with this and tailor the tour to our level of knowledge about the area. She taught a great deal about how the elite class of Charleston’s first 200 years lived their lives. She also specialized in gardens and plants. My wife loved that part of the tour. I was much more interested in buildings and wrought iron works. She did a great job with those as well. Everything was interesting. Jill presented Charleston in a way that we had not experienced before. The Gibbes Art Gallery part of the tour came at the end. We had not been there in 50+ years, so we didn’t know what to expect. Jill gave us a 10 to 15 minute introduction and then let us explore. Charleston history from the first days of settlement to the present came in many different formats. I particularly enjoyed the paintings depicting the terror and resulting unity of the church shooting several years ago. The tour may be long for some. We walked just over 3 miles. However, the pace was always at a good rate. Although, I am recuperating from spraining both my knee and ankle, I was able to keep up and enjoy the walk. Thanks Jill for an enjoyable and educating afternoon.

      Great time in Charleston
      Jill was fantastic, very knowledgeable and made the city and its history come alive. It was 40 degrees and windy and Jill took us on a driving tour instead, which allowed her to combine a little from each of her tours. With her spirited personality and southern charm, she was delightful and fun. We would recommend Jill to anyone new to Charleston. Her hotel and food recomendations did not disappoint. We will be visiting again for another great tour with Jill and telling all our our friends and family visiting Charleston to look her up. Thanks again Jill, we had a blast. Sincerely Dennis and Kelley Posey

      Jill was amazing and had such great energy! Super fun to walk such a beautiful city with her. We particularly loved that she made a point to show us all the inspirational gardens and talk about the plants and blooming flowers that call Charleston home. Thanks Jill!

      AMAZING walking tour
      One of the best tourism experiences I’ve ever had. She not only specialized the tour to our liking, but went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience. The tour went over the payed for time just to make sure we had seen all the wonderful historical and architectural wonders of Charleston. She was charming welcoming and lovely woman, highly highly recommend.

      Fantastic Charleston tour!
      Signed up for this tour last minute, but so glad we did it! Jill was kind, informative, and charming. Would recommend this to anyone hoping to walk through the must-see architecture we would not have known to go to otherwise. It was a lot of walking, but with engaging stories throughout it did not feel like it.

      A Taste of Historic Downtown
      Not one boring thing!! Jill talked about very interesting things and we saw so many quaint places. We went down beautiful streets and secret gardens. We loved walking along The Battery. And learned the difference between a graveyard and a cemetery!! We are already planning our next trip back! Loved it!

      This local was very impressed!
      What a wonderful tour! I live in Charleston and was going along with a friend, and I was pleasantly surprised by the new things I learned. I've been on walking tours in cities all over the world, and the depth of knowledge Jill expressed, as well as her stories that brought the history to life, made this one of the best tours I've ever taken. Highly recommend!

      Jill is an effervescent and delightful tour guide!
      As a new resident of Charleston, her Best of Historic Charleston walking tour opened me up to charming nooks & crannies I’d never seen nor would have found on my own. Jill’s delivery of historical knowledge was anything BUT dry & professorial, and her pleasant demeanor (as well as the pace of the tour) was most appreciated by her guests. Her other tours look very unique and inviting, so I look forward to accompanying her again soon!

      Jill is THE BEST! She is extremely knowledgeable about the unique history of Charleston and has a warm, welcoming personality. As first time visitors to Charleston, we were looking for a tour that would introduce us to the historic charm of this city and Jill and this tour definitely met our expectation. We were blessed to be her only customers yesterday, so we felt very special, but I’m sure she makes everybody feel that way. We highly recommend both Jill and this tour!

    Jill was so much fun! She took us to many of the locations where they filmed the series. Our 12 and 13 year old girls "recreated" a few of the scenes at the dock. They ran threw the cemetery. And too many other places to mention. We drove from Florida for this tour. And will do it again after they film the next season! We felt like we knew the cast like she did after our tour. Highly recommend it!

    Jill was the absolute best. She was very knowledgeable in the scenes, locations, and any other questions. She was very friendly and took as many pictures as we wanted. About 1/2 way through the tour, an incident had happened where my sister shut my finger in a door— leading to stitches. Jill was kind enough to bring me to an urgent care after the tour (upon my request of not ending it sooner of course). (Now that’s more than a normal tour guide!!) There were snacks, laughs, and unforgettable moments. If you want more than just your average site seeing of “oh this was in the show” I recommend planning a day with Jill. There was so many locations where she had “in the moment” details and stories of the characters. Thank you for an amazing experience ❤️

    Jaide! I was so worried about you. But, you assured me you wanted to do the tour. I, of course, insisted you get stitches. So glad you agreed and let me drive you to Urgent Care the minute the tour was over. And, special thanks to Bill on Church Street for getting the band aids and Neosporin. This was a first for me. You and Haley were wonderful guests!!! And I’m so happy you had fun despite your “war wound.” You will make an incredible Trauma nurse. And Haley will be a wonderful Marine Biologist. Keep me updated!!! What a pleasure to meet you girls. Hope to welcome you back again. Big hug, Jill 🥰

    My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. It was something different because we have visited Charleston many times. We love watching the show Outer Banks on Netflix so it was neat to see many of the film locations. Ms. Jill was an excellent guide. She took us to places that we would have never known. She even had the cast favorite snacks. We also re-created a scene from the show, which was so funny! It was a great way to spend our time in Charleston. If you watch OBX, then you MUST experience this tour.

    We cannot begin to express how amazing this tour was!! My daughter wanted her 16th birthday special and we knew that with everything going on in the world it would be hard. Jill made her birthday magical!! All the cool spots she took us to, all the behind the scenes knowledge she shared with us, the cute stories, and the sheer beauty was astounding. We cannot wait to go back in the fall for a walking tour! Jill really went out of her way to make this a birthday my daughter will never forget!!

    If you are a fan of Outer Banks I would recommend this tour. It is quite expensive so don't send anyone that isn't a big fan. My son and I had fun together and Jill was a great guide with insider information and really puts a lot of thought into the tour. You can tell she loves and is very proud of the show.

    Fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our morning touring location sites with Jill. She has the best personality and is so easy to talk to. She is very knowledgeable and personable and pointed out some little ‘hidden gems’ along the way that she has discovered.
    We look forward to touring with her again at some point. Our teen is very excited for Season 2 of Outer Banks!

    Loved the tour with Jill. She took my daughters and I to the sights where Outerbanks was filmed and she was super knowledgeable about the places and the area. It was great getting to drive around with her and connect the scenes from the show to real places. Also loved hearing her stories and fast facts about Charleston. She gave great recommendations for food and even treated with donuts! 100% will be visiting her again for another tour.

    Jill is fantastic and the tour shows all the OBX locations you could want with lots of knowledge and inside tracks on the show. As someone who has been in the show, Jill knows what she is talking about. My daughter Dharma loved it. We took loads of pictures and nothing was too much trouble. This tour is a must.

    If you are on the fence about this tour, don’t think twice, book it. You will not be disappointed. Jill is a total gem, an excellent tour guide, funny, knowledgeable on all things OBX and spending time with her felt like hanging out with your favorite fun aunt. We would give more stars if we could! This tour also provides a nice break from walking/history tours for a change of pace. 11 year old daughter loved it! Made the trip for her. Definitely recommend and will definitely be back when Jill rolls out OBX season 3 tour!
