Eric and Bob the parrot, were definitely very knowledgeable. Our tour started promptly and was filled with exciting historical stories and facts about the pirates that visited and plundered Charleston and surrounding waters. My wife and sister were hesitant about this tour but ended up loving it. They were enthralled with the stories and presentation. If you think this tour is for kids, think otherwise. Kids may get bored, lots of facts and information. Didn't realize there was so much interesting information..
