As first time visitors to Charleston, my husband and I wanted to take a guided tour to see the highlights of this historic city. Our hotel recommended and set up a Historic City tour with Charleston Ventures. We chose to add a visit to Fort Sumpter on to our package.
Our day began with a 9:00 am pick-up at our hotel, which took us to the visitors center. Pam, our driver, must be one of the kindest, most pleasant people I've ever met. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome!
Upon arrival at the visitors center, we had time to use the restrooms, shop the gift shop, and get a bottled beverage. Our Historic City tour began at 9:30 am. It was 90 minutes long. It was in an air conditioned mini bus. Richard, our tour guide and owner of the company, was very knowledgable. He made the tour very interesting! I learned more on this tour, than any I've ever been on in all of the cities I have visited. After the tour, we were taken to a deli near Fort Sumpter, where we had time to eat lunch and then walk to the Liberty Square for the Fort Sumpter visit. On the conclusion of the visit (approx. 2 hours later), we were greeted by Pam's smile, waiting to return us back to our hotel! This was the perfect morning, returning us back to out hotel by 2:30pm, leaving our afternoon open for shopping. I highly recommend this tour company!
