After a business meeting, I had a few hours to explore Charleston before catching my flight. The 9am tour fit perfectly. Palmer was delightful and full of great Charleston history. The tour was so interesting that I’m planning to come back and explore more!

Palmer condenses an immense knowledge base into your two hours. Bring curiosity as she has all the answers while keeping it fun and interesting. Best tour guide either of us ever experienced.
