    Fran, our tour guide, was a complete pro! We did both the walking history tour as well as the Savor the Flavor and such a great time. Learned so much and had a really special experience. As a someone from the west coast, it is hard to conceive of living in a place with so much history around every corner. When we come back, Bulldog tours will be at the top of our list!

    I had a wonderful time at this property. The Magnolia plantation has incredibly beautiful grounds with so many different things to look at. Not only is there nature, there is architecture, that dates back an entire century. The staff conducting the tours were most informative and did an excellent job. I fully recommend taking the day to come out here for a couple of hours and enjoy this tour.

    Fantastic tour! The history was interesting and the walk was nicely paced. The cooking demonstration and lunch was phenomenal. Best meal I’ve had in Charleston so far. Able to accommodate to allergies and aversions alike. Chef has a great sense of humor and personality to keep you entertained throughout the whole excursion. 100% recommend for foodies!!

    Capt. John was very knowledgeable and informative of the history of Charleston. We enjoyed the fact that we say the typical “touristy” stuff as well as local stuff.

    Alice was quite knowledgeable about the area and the history. We enjoyed listening to her give us the background on Charleston and tidbits about the food we ate. We also enjoyed the company of the other couple. It was nice to enjoy good food and meet new people and share experiences.

    10 out of 10! We were in Charleston for 4 days and saw a lot of amazing things, but this tour with Lance was hands down the most fun time we had! He is excellent at what he does and you should consider yourself very lucky if he is your guide. I could have walked around the city with him for hours more! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

    The tour was absolutely fantastic. Our tour guide ( Nick) was knowledgeable and very charismatic. My wife and I learned quite a bit about the history and the architecture as well.

    According to my "paranormal girlfriend," the best ghost hunting tour she has ever been on. Nick was fantastic-- humor, well-informed historically, knew his ghost-hunting equipment, and a "believer" in the energies of the paranormal. I had a great time using the FLIR camera (Forward Looking Infrared) and despite my interest in all-things-spooky, I would recommend this to anyone wishing a fun two hours in downtown Charleston at night. Regardless of your X-files sentiment of "I believe" (or not), a must-see event for those even moderately interested in hauntings, energies, presences, disembodied spirits, or TAPS. Thanks Nick for the best treat on this last Charleston visit.

    Geordie’s Ghost tour was the highlight of our trip. His enthusiasm and knowledge of Charleston history made for a informative and fun tour. Over the years we have taken three of Geordie’s tours when we have visited Charleston and have enjoyed every one of them.

    We were able to get a taste of the history of the harbor and the fort. The volunteers were fantastic and the park rangers as well. We saw dolphins as well which was a bonus for my family. I wish we would have had time to add on uss Yorktown tour but at least we were able to see during boarding!
