    It was very interesting and absolutely worthwhile! The guide was passionate and knowledgeable. However the meeting point on the reservation was not the one that we should have been so when we realized we are the only one there , we had to call and run to the actual point.

    Great experience. Much better than a bus tour as you get to stand in front of building and see what is being described.

    Enjoyed an early morning, 2 hour walking tour with "Barry." He was knowledgeable of the history, culture and architecture of Charleson. The tour was a comfortable walk, just wear good shoes or sandals and hyrdrate. Also, in the summer go first thing in the morning as the tour will be a little cooler. We opted to do the tour our first morning in the city. As such, it gave us a nice overview of the history of the city while educating us to arrange follow up tours per sites we were more interested in.
