Jill is AMAZING! I recently moved to Charleston, and exploring downtown with a knowledgable and friendly guide has been the best thing I have done so far in my new city. Jill's tour focused on many locations and stories that I otherwise probably would have never found or discovered. I would recommend a tour with Jill for both visitors to Charleston and to locals who have lived here for years. I cannot wait until my family comes to visit so that I can take them on one of Jill's tours!

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 was knowledgeable, engaging and friendly. She had interesting insights and a great storyteller. We moved along without seeming rushed. She shared insider tips and dining recommendations. We had great fun!

My fiancé and I did the outer banks tour - big fans of the show. We had great weather and the tour guide Jill was very kind, friendly and hospitable. She had drinks and snacks for us and made sure we had all the information we need to feel more welcomed. Jill was very thorough and knowledgeable. I thought 95 bucks was as a little steep but over all the tour was great and I would recommended her - even if you haven’t seen outer banks , Jill still knew a lot about the local Charleston area. I enjoyed the AC and that most of it was within short driving distance.

Thanks, Stephanie. It was such a pleasure meeting you and Jimmy. What a beautiful day we had! Perhaps the cost of a private driving tour seems steep, but if you compare my 3.5-hour tour and the square miles covered all over the peninsula and the Old Village, with other 2-hour private driving tours that only cover downtown, you will see my price is actually lower. (Plus, I do offer bottled water, unlimited snacks and those crazy-good donuts!) 🥰 🍩 Thanks so much for choosing Eclectic Tours of Charleston!

Our first day visiting Charleston couldn’t have gone better. Jill picked up my wife, me, and our friends for a tour of Charleston and the Netflix show Outerbanks bank's locations. Jill seemed to know everything there was to know about Charleston. Every street brought a new story and more information. Showing us historical sights and information, so many locations where the hit show outer banks were filmed, and my wife really loved it when we would come across locations that “The Notebook” was filmed. She showed us shopping areas and recommended places to eat. Halfway through our tour we stopped at a local coffee bar and had a much needed iced coffee.
We really enjoyed our tour. Not only because we were fans of the Netflix show Outerbanks but because Jill really gave us a feel and layout of Charleston. I really recommend this tour for anyone but especially people new to the city like us.
Thank you Jill we really enjoyed ourselves

Thank you, Isaac! I loved meeting your group and it was such fun highlighting some of the locations from various film and TV for Gloria. So glad the weather was on our side. You were all so engaging and charming. Thanks for the iced latte!! I hope you enjoyed the remainder of your visit. Charleston has so many places to see — and so many delicious restaurants to experience, you’ll just have to come again!!

I went with a group of ladies for one of Jill’s tours, “Amazing Ladies,” and had a great time. She is very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour filled with all kinds of fun info. You can tell she truly enjoys what she’s doing which ‘she’s it all the more enjoyable. Definitely recommend taking this tour even if you’re a local, like we all were, because you’ll definitely learn some new things & discover some hidden side streets you probably never knew were there!

Without doubt one of the MOST KICK ASS tour guides in Charleston, SC.

Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by KICK ASS Jill, our names were mentioned so nicely and we felt welcomed and with such a friendly atmosphere we had a fantastic start! The guide and tour was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that she deserves a special thanks. Her content was so flexible, she was relaxed and easy mannered, she wants whats best for you. I especially recommend these tours to young couples/newlyweds looking for a more intimate tour!

Jill has such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). I truly enjoyed walking through the area. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. The Longitude Lane was so beautiful and my fiancé and I took so many cute pictures. Jill and I were in cahoots together before the tour and we arranged my proposal to my fiance!

The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to us. All respect for Jill who does a great job there; a true sample of an excellent tour guide!

Many thanks again and I recommend Jill Paris to everyone!
