    • Amy was very knowledgeable and 2 hours went by so fast. Nice way to see beautiful old homes and some stunning gardens. Recommend for anyone interested in getting an overview of historical section.

    • Could work to make his excellent stories a little shorter. Evans was an excellent guide.

    • We have lived outside Charleston for 8 years but had never taken a historical tour. This one was very informative and our guide had a real enthusiasm for her topic! We learned a lot about Charleston and its history. I would recommend this tour to visitors and anyone who wants to know more about a great Southern City!

    • Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable. I could not stump her with questions. Enjoyed the walking tour!

    • Excellent guide, good pace, lots of information.

    • Great tour of downtown Charleston with Amy. Her enthusiasm was contagious. A great way to learn about the buildings and homes from early Charleston and get a real sense of what it was like to live in Charleston in those early years. Beautiful gardens, doors, porches and balconies.

    • This tour was very helpful and very hillarious. Amy was a wonderful guide and really gave us a great overall view of downtown. She focused on what we as a group wanted to learn about and knew a lot of historical information. Highly recommend!!

    • Two hour tour through Charleston from historic area to Batttery over Memorial Day Weekend. With the exception of the very hot weather 90s the local guide not initially very welcoming but he warmed up during the walkprovided a good overview of the city. Given the heat a quick stop somewhere along the way for a water or soda would have made it 5s. Some folks were really melting.

    • Amy was an excellent guide. She had great insight into the historic district, answered every question we had, gave us some great eating recommendations and even used her old Charleston accent for part of the tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and thought it was a solid bargain as well.

    • Excellent tour. Guide had in-depth knowledge and a great personality. I recommend this tour to any Charleston Visitor!
