Hi, my name is Brian Simms and I am a 10th generation Charlestonian. Our All About Charleston tour features the history, culture and architecture of the area. We will stroll the streets and alleyways of the "Holy City" while sharing stories along the way, covering overall Charleston history, the people who built this city and its trials and tribulations. There is a rich history and culture I would like to share and look forward to showing you the sights of our area, creating an experience you will remember for years to come!

We did a private tour with our family. Brian was very informative. My father in law is disabled and Brian was able to accommodate him. We were still able to go into several buildings even engaging with a preteen. He made it fun for me who gets bored with history. He also made stops at CLEAN bathrooms without us having... More

We really enjoyed our tour with Brian. We got lucky and we're the only people on the tour (is was a Monday in February). Brian knows so much about the history of Charleston and is clearly passionate about it. He had so much information to share and tons of stories to go along with it. We loved our tour. Bring... More

We learned so much from Brian. He is full of knowledge of his city and presents that knowledge so efficiently. His historical facts interspersed with "colorful" people stories kept you listening all the time. Charleston is a friendly city and Brian is the friendliest. He is a native of the city and represents it well. It is advertised as a... More

I appreciated how he was able to make the tour fun, engaging and informative. You could tell he loves sharing his knowledge about the city and knows the neighborhood/its residents very well... More

I had a great time with the tour guide Fin - my fiance, dad, and I went on the tour this past Friday morning. Fin was extremely knowledgeable and showed us all of the details - large and small - that the old part of Charleston has to offer! We went into one of the oldest operating theaters in the... More

If you want more than a brief glance of the highlights of Charleston then join Brian on a tour. You’ll get an up close and personal insight into the architecture, bricks, churches, cobblestones and historical figures that built this city. Not only is this tour cheaper than the carriage ride, there is no waiting and you’ll get to spend a... More
