Excellent, well informed guide Lee Ann Bain leads tour highlighting the Grimké sisters, family and history of Charleston. Make this tour a priority to learn about early abolitionists, suffragists, religious and social culture changes over time. This tour was my favorite because I learned so much and was able to ask questions.

Lee Ann Bain is a fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much about these amazing women and Charleston at their time. Lee Ann brought alive the religious and social tensions surrounding slavery and the place of women. One of the best tours I have ever been on. Also a great walk through beautiful and interesting parts of Charleston.

Wonderful tour, one of the best I've ever taken. The subject matter is fascinating, of course, and not well known, and Lee Ann truly brings it to life. The tour proceeds almost like a story unfolds, one keeps wanting to learn more! And of course walking the streets of beautiful, historic Charleston, including lesser known streets, is the icing on the cake. Highly recommend!

We loved the Grimke Sister tour! Lee Ann was fabulous as our tour guide. She walked us through so much history in such an informal way. It was like being told a story over a couple of hours while slowly walking the beautiful streets of Charleston. We learnt so much about these amazing women, their family and the people who lived in Charleston during this time. Thanks so much!
