Al is so knowledgable on so many topics that he can tailor your tour to your interests, and will happily do so. Easy walking, great conversation. You get the feeling that you're (almost) as interesting to him as the city of Charleston.More

Not only exceptionally knowledgeable and informative, Al Ray clearly loves what he does, and is an excellent ambassador for Charleston. I would highly recommend his tours. I hope that we get the chance to return to take another one of his tours.
