Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Charleston in a Nutshell is the ideal walking tour for sightseers who have a limited amount of time yet want to visit the "must-see" places. Learn about the city's history, architecture, and culture with historian Jeff Zimmerman. Jeff has been a licensed guide since 1997 and is an eighth generation carolinian. You will also go off the beaten path to seldom seen places that are off limits to bus and carriage tours. I also offer group and private driving tours upon request.

Jeff was knowledgeable, interesting and very thorough. The experience was both worthwhile and an excellent value. I'd recommend this tour to anyone.

This walking tour started at Waterfront Park and takes you on a trip through the history of Charleston. Our guide was very friendly and knew it all to say the least. He spoke clearly and loudly and took us on a 2 hour walk that showed a lot of the best places in town. He welcomed questions and had great recommendations for where to go next.

Really enjoyed our walking tour with Jeff. He was very interesting to listen to and knew all sorts of facts and details. It was hot the day we went, but Jeff provided us with a bottle of water and kept us in the shade as much as possible. One of the best tours we took while in Charleston. Highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed the Civil War Tour we took today. Jeff was great! He was extremely knowledgeable, and we learned a lot. We will definitely take one of Jeff's other tours the next time we visit Charleston.

Hi Bradley. Thank you for submitting a review. It was a great pleasure meeting you and your wife. I really appreciate students of history, and I could tell you both are true historians. Come back soon!
