“Great Tour by Knowledgable Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

We had a blast. I highly recommend. My wife was pregnancy and I feel like the guide made a point to find opportunities to use the rest room and have a seat for a few minutes to rest our feet.

“What A Fun Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Our family took a 2 hour tour (actually lasted 2 1/2 hrs...you get your $$ worth!) last weekend and it was great! Brian can make Charleston history come alive and we enjoyed all his interesting stories about the people who lived here and the neat buildings in the historical district. I would highly recommend his tour to anyone....you will be glad you did.

“Wonderful way to spend a morning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Brian did a wonderful job of showing us the highlights of historic Charleston. We found him to be very knowledgeable and friendly. We loved having a small group, so we could ask questions and it made it very easy to get around to all the points of interest and hear Brian's explanation.

“This is the tour to pick!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

I wanted to do a walking tour of Charleston but was overwhelmed with all the choices. I picked Brian's tour based on the Trip Advisor reviews and I was not disappointed. Brian did a good job of taking us through the historic district and pointing out key sites and providing very detailed information. It was exactly what I wanted. He was very good with answering all questions and modifying the trip based on the very hot weather. He stopped for bathroom breaks (much appreciated) as well as water. Just a fantastic guide. I got more out of this experience than any of the other tours we did. At the end of the tour he went out his way to make sure we had a place identified for lunch and any other information to make our stay good. Just a great host.

The other comment I'd like to make it how good it is to be in a group. While I expected to learn a lot from Brian the questions and comments from the other folks in our group really added to the experience.

“Keeping pace with Brian.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

What a joy to experience Charleston through the feet and eyes of such a knowledgeable guide!
Brian was punctual, enthusiastic, and well informed. Our walk around the historic district took a little over 2 1/2 hours with ample stops to catch our breath, take potty breaks, and drink in the views.
