Skip was amazing. He’s very personable and funny and knows everything you can imagine. We took a private tour with him and he made emphasis in the architecture mixed with history. Highly recommended!

Skip took 4 of us on a morning stroll we will recommend highly. History, architectural details, slavery history and facts, dining tips, ‘where the good stuff is’. Walking down alleys and places we wouldn’t see from a carriage. Well worth the cost!
