It's always a great thing to visit somewhere and meet someone who loves his or her subject and has a wealth of knowledge about it. Brian is such. His tour took us all over the historical areas of Charleston and he has a fund of stories and facts about each location - in fact with all the questions etc the tour an over time and we certainly knew we'd been on a trek at the end. You also get to little out of the way spots you wouldn't normally visit. Don't let the length put you off - you learn all sorts about what happened to the city, where it started and how it is like it is. So many people must just wander round not seeing or knowing and a tour with brian will put straight.
To be honest I'm not always a fan of being dragged around by a guide but this was an exception. Very good value and enjoyable.
