Fin was an incredibly well-informed and entertaining tour guide. This was the second walking tour we've taken when visiting Charleston and it didn't disappoint!

My brother recommended this tour to me and it did not disappoint. Fin was a fantastic guide and we enjoyed every minute. Fin is extremely knowledgeable and friendly which makes for the perfect guide. He literally transported us back to historic Charleston. Highly, highly recommend.
