        Surpassed all of our expectations
        We do a lot of traveling and have gone on many tours. This tour, however is by far the best experience we’ve had. Jon, our guide was thoughtful, engaged, informed and very committed to showing us all the Charleston has to offer. We covered a lot of ground in a short time and feel that we learned a great deal about the City and its fine history. We enjoyed exploring the waterfront, historic homes, king street, rainbow row and other key parts of the city. We especially loved the time we spent at the citadel. As a former student and avid historical reader, Jon’s first hand knowledge of the campus, its traditions and its deep roots in our nations history was AMAZING! We highly recommend this tour!!!

        The BEST!
        Great experience, would highly recommend! Our guide Gregg was the best, very knowledgable and a good driver with a comfortable vehicle. As it’s been a while since we watched the series, the clips shown to support the location were very much appreciated.

        Wonderful tour!
        This tour was amazing! Chris catered the tour to my daughter's interest in Marvel and went out of his to show us sites when road work was an impediment. Would highly recommend!

        Personalized tour!
        Mark was very accommodating with pickup and drop off locations. It was a great way to see a LOT of Charleston and to learn a bit of history. I would highly recommend this tour for those that walk long distances or struggle with heat. The air conditioned vehicle and cold water was very much appreciated.

        Excellent private tour in the beautiful city of Savannah!!
        Andy proved to be an excellent private tour guide. He was very pleasant and easy to understand. He arrived a few minutes early to pick us up. It was our first visit to Savannah. We appreciated all the information and history that Andy shared with us. Totally fascinating city!! I would totally recommend Andy to anyone looking for an informative, enjoyable private tour.

        The perfect way to get a good overview of Charleston
        The tour was exactly what we were hoping for. Jon was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city and was able to make it come alive with both facts and insightful comments on historical figures and the unique architecture that was everywhere. I especially loved his personal memories of his days at the Citadel. He kept us completely entertained so that the time absolutely flew by. I was especially grateful for his immediate recognition of what my companion was really interested in and adjusting to meet her expectations. I cannot more highly recommend this tour and this tour guide.

        Savannah Historical and Victorian District Tour
        The Tour Guide (Bill Bell) was friendly and very knowledgeable. He shared historical and area details during the entire tour. He encouraged participation and readily answered questions. He was flexible and would stop wherever you wanted. Excellent tour guide.

        The Best Way to Spend a Day in Savannah
        My husband and I spent an enjoyable 7-hour tour of historical Savannah, Fort Pulaski National Monument, Tybee Island, Isles of Hope, Wormsloe State Historic Park, and other interesting surrounding areas with our amazing DTour guide, Bill Bell. Bill was very pleasant and easy to spend the day with. He was considerate, caring and very knowledgable on the areas and the history. Bill suggested a fun and delicious southern home cooking dining experience at Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room. We highly recommend DTours and Bill Bell.

        First Class Way To See Savannah & Surrounding Area
        It was a smooth day without any problems. Andy took great care of us and showed us more of Savannah than we would have ever managed on our own. He gave us just enough history to keep our interests piqued, but not overwhelm us. My wife and I had a great time and we would both recommend this to anyone visiting for the first time, or that are trying to crunch a lot into one day. We took the tour on our first full day and were able to spend the rest of our time revisiting the areas that we found most interesting.

        An experience for all Walking Dead fans.
        This was an incredible day, my brother and I pre-planned this before we left England, we was picked up by Chris whose energy was so contagious, there wasn't a single silent moment in the car between destinations, he never told us what we was going to see but instead would stop the car, and let us guess where it was, which is an incredible feeling to realise the location without being told ahead of time, so the excitement was on a whole other level. When realising the location, Chris would then show us pictures from the show on his phone so we could see for reference and compare which made it so much better, and not only that, just by watching Chris it quickly became evident how much he enjoys his job which is fantastic to see someone so passionate. I would happily pay and experience the same tour with Chris as our guide again. An absolutely incredible day. After our tour concluded and we were dropped back at our hotel, we had a selfie with Chris before shaking hands and parting ways. I was gonna add pictures of our Tour, but I rejected the thought, because I whole heartedly feel that every Walking Dead fan should go into this blindly, you'll have a much better experience. So instead I offer you our post tour selfie. Thank you so much once again Chris and D-Tours.

        An excellent narration of a pivotal time in American History “Civil War to Civil Rights”
        Our tour guide Chris was excellent. We both love history so he adjusted our experience to detailed (in-person) context so we were able to connect our knowledge to important historical site. Last year we did Williamsburg (we wanted to see where America began). This year we wanted to experience our historical tour during Black History Month. The Civil Rights movement was a paradigm shift for America and we found that Chris “conversationally” provided us a very informative (and rich in context) tour.

      Dan was interesting, knowledgeable, and obviously passionate about his city. There were four of us -- two on our first visit to Atlanta and our two friends who live here. One of our friends said that the tour made him fall in love with the city all over again. Dan arrived on time and throughout the tour made sure that our expectations were being met. He will personalize the tour based on what you want to see and learn, and we learned so much! Dan's style of delivery is casual yet very informed. He's a good driver, too. I recommend DTours without hesitation.
