I happened upon this tour by Groupon and was delightfuly satisfied. My only regret was that I elected to take the tour on my final day in Charleston. Anne was so knowledgeable. Her personal stories about her own family's history in Charleston added to the charm of this historic city tour. If you don't take Anne's tour, you are short changing yourself!

Anne, My friends & I took your lunch suggestion for a quick bite @ Fast & French. It was a perfect quick lunch before heading to the airport. Thanks for the suggestion!

So glad you enjoyed it and went to Fast and French. It's a quircky little place, but always delicious with a fun atmosphere.
Hope to see you next time you pass through town.

We recently held a conference at the Francis Marion Hotel in downtown Charleston. We put an optional one hour walking tour on the agenda for 6:30 AM and at precisely 6:30 AM, 12 conferees departed the hotel with Anne Herron as our tour guide. It was a beautiful morning and our tour was fantastic as we walked through Francis Marion park and two adjoining neighborhoods. Our guide presented historical information on Charleston, pointed out and discussed the history of dozens of historic homes and artifacts and answered all questions posed by the group. We were back at the hotel at 7:30 AM as scheduled. Professional and flexible. Top marks from the group.

We've been on many history and walking tours, but this was even better. Not only a native Charlestonian, but a very nice person to talk with and wander around the streets of downtown Charleston with. It was different in that we were able to choose what streets to go down, what sites we were interested in talking about, life (past and present) in the downtown area, history and of course the personal touch of refreshments afterwards while looking at pictures and artifacts. While other tours are good, this is a must-do and a step above the rest!
