During the last four days of our trip in Charleston we have covered quite a bit of ground, learned a lot about the history of the city, and met quite a few folks. I must say that today was by far the best history lesson we've come across during our stay. Al Miller is a fountain of information and stories... More

I didn't think this tour would have been as good as it was but it was awesome. Al made the tour fun and he was very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. He taught me a few things I didn't know and also made me remember how blessed I am. He really takes his time with the tour. You will... More

we took the Gullah Geechee Culture tour with Mr Al Miller. He was patient, informative and knowledgeable. I especially enjoyed how the "Porgy & Bess" opera came into being. the tour lasted approx. 2 hrs, and should be taken by all. Al Miller is a joy!

We loved our Sea Island tour with Mr. Miller. He shared history and information that we wouldn't have otherwise gotten about Charleston's past, present and future, the Gullah-Geechee culture and the African-American experience in Charleston. He even sang a few bits and pieces from "Porgy and Bess" and demonstrated the Charleston Clap. We highly recommend this tour.

We loved Al Miller's tour and narration of the Gullah Geechee Culture and tour of the area. He combines his charm, story-telling expertise and knowledge of the area into a very interesting tour that is educational and informative as well. GREAT tour!

My wife and I had the good fortune of taking this tour on a beautiful, sunny, but cool fall day. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that we were the only two customers on the tour (probably due to off-season). Our driver/guide (Al Miller) was very knowledgeable, and courteous. He was also very patient in answering our many questions. The... More

This tour was recommended to us by the Gullah Presenter at Boone Hall. We are not African American and learned a lot of things we did not hear on other tours. This tour is for people of all races. Al Miller was not our tour guide for the Sunday 2 1/2 hour tour Gullah Geechee Culture and Sea Island Tour.... More

What a wonderful and informative tour provided by Mr. Al Miller. We were interested in learning about Gullah culture and the slave experience in and around Charleston, and Mr. Miller delivered! He was engaging, answered all of our questions and a real pleasure. And his infusion of songs from Porgy & Bess makes the experience even more unique and memorable.... More

I have guided for 25 years elsewhere and Washington DC and I, with my experience, will recommend Mr. Miller's tour services to groups who want to do a Gullah tour of Charleston. You will have...

Al Miller has so much knowledge about Gullah and Charleston history. I learned a lot. He is very personable and conducts the tour in a manner that held my attention. The tour was so good I hated to see it end. If I should visit Charleston again, I would definitely take this tour again. I highly recommend it.
