Luckily we arrived in time to take this awesome walking tour with Bill prior to him having to shut down because of Covid. Bill takes you on a tour from the historical socio-economic perspective of Charleston . His tour enables you to not only SEE the city but understand why and how it came to be. IF and when Bill can resume sharing his passion do yourself a favor and book his tour...you won't be sorry!

This is an excellent walking tour, I can’t recommend it enough! Our guide, forgive me I forgot his name, probably because I was focusing so intently on remembering the rich history of Charleston, was a walking encyclopedia. Not only was his wealth of knowledge so vast but he was very funny and the time just flew by. You will fall in love with this very charming city.

Excellent. This was an amazing intro to the city that was brutally honest about the dark roots of the city while offering a load of historical information combined with a brilliant sense of humor. A well done intro to a beautiful city that doesn't avoid the truth. I highly recommend to anyone that is willing to hear the real history while somehow managing to have a few laughs on the way. Guide was brilliant, extremely knowledgeable, honest and hilarious.
