This was not our first visit to Charleston and we wanted a little more one on one interaction. Our concierge suggest Skip Evans and we are so glad we gave him a call. Skip was born and raised in Charleston. He is very familiar and knowledgeable of all things past and present in the area. We went at our own pace, he would stop and answer any question we had and never felt rushed or hurried along. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I did a walking tour with Skip through historic Charleston. Skip was a fantastic guide - so informative and adds inside history of the city from growing up there. We loved the tour and would highly recommend Skip as a guide.
