A great way to see a larger part of the city, than you might have time for in a regular visit. We explored an area we had not even planned to visit. Jeff was a knowledgeable host, and we learned a great deal about Charleston.

Jeff was knowledgeable. We saw a lot of places and found out the history and background of them that we would not have found out otherwise.

We went on a private, two hour tour of Charleston yesterday. Jeff arrived promptly and picked us up at our hotel and preceded to give us a very informative tour of the city. Great tour. I would definitely recommend.
