My husband and I booked this tour last minute based on the reviews and availability that morning. What a pleasant surprise to find that you get every penny’s worth of your money and so much more at a great price! Ben was awesome - he was knowledgeable, funny, and very engaging. We walked around the main sites of town and learned about the rich and interesting history of the city. It was a great way to start our trip and helped in shaping what our plans were for the rest of our time in Charleston. We highly recommend this tour - and doing it first thing in the morning (less pedestrian traffic on the streets, and as the tour progressed you could see other later tours from different companies getting started with more people out and about). Thanks Ben & Oyster tours for an excellent experience!
