We had a group of 14 for a private pub stroll on September 14. We asked for tour guide Michael Coker based on the recommendations on TripAdvisor. The recommendations were spot on. Mike is a historian with a full time job at a museum. (Some of our group saw him there 2 days later, he gave them a tour and they bought his book). We passed a gentleman on the street and he said "you have the best tour guide in Charleston". We would concur.
We met in a lovely park and Mike took our pictures. We then started strolling to the first bar. It is a stroll not a falling down drunk crawl. Well I guess that depends on how much you have to drink... We eventually made it to 3 bars (Our fav was the Griffin) with Mike regaling our group with fun and interesting stories. Mike did an interactive tale that had our group in stitches.
This is a really fun way to see some of Charleston and learn a bit of history. A home run for our group.
