It was such a pleasure to see Charleston with a ride on the Crazy Train. Valerie was very knowledgeable and shared the history and the purpose of the sights we saw. She began by making us feel comfortable by asking where we were from and the purpose of our visit. She also shared the folklore, the architectural designs (iron work),... More

Sue Bennett, of Walk Charleston, took us on one of the most delightful walking tours we have ever experienced. She is exceptionally knowledgeable, but doesn't bore her guests with excessive details. Instead, she tells important contextual information and stories (along with some gossip!) about various homes, businesses, churches, and government buildings that bring them to life and make them memorable....

We had an excellent view of the city. We were shown beautiful architecture and given the history of what we saw. Mary Helen was very personable and informative. One of the highlights of our visit to Charleston. We highly recommend adding this to your things to do.

We went to Charleston on last minute plans and made an on-line reservation with the Old South Carriage Company. We chose it because we needed a later in the day time and it had a 4 PM tour opening. The carriage was comfortable and the horse, Jake, had his own mind. Our guide was quite knowledgeable. However, the down side... More

Gray Line tour of historic Charleston SC and Ft Sumpter. A 4+ hour tour. Absolutely well worth it. Rate the guided tour a 5 of 5. Roy of Gray Line is a degreed historian, been doing the city tour of Charleston for 17 years...then the National Park Service tour of Ft Sumpter. Even at near 100 degrees it was a... More

I and my better half were visiting Charleston, SC last week and took the tour. It was 102 F and we still had fun and found it very informative. It also made you enjoy your return to an air condition hotel when it was done. The tour takes about 1 1/2 hours and pretty much covers all the high points... More

Susan is a lovely Southern lady with an enormous amount of knowledge. She picked us up from our hotel and we spent two wonderful hours with her learning so much about the local history. My husband and I felt we had not spent enough time with Susan so luckily she was able to give us another much longer tour the... More

George was a wealth of information on the history of Charleston, SC. When we needed to stop and wait a bit, he added another story of the old town to fill the gap. Enjoyed this 90 minute tour very much and would recommend to others.

Charleston Carriage Works is a great way to see the historic district. Our tour left 10am. The carriage was pulled by a Belgian draft horse. Most carriages here are pulled by this type of horse. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the city and it's history. The tour lasts an hour which is just enough. If you... More
