Me and my wife had a great Sunday tour of Charleston it wasn’t busy and crowded walking the town. Jim is a great and very informative guide which try’s showing and giving you as much information as he can in the two hours, he went over 15 minutes which we didn’t mind. I highly recommend.

Fantastic Tour of Historic Charleston

Such a fun and informative tour! Steve (99% sure that was his name) is a SC native and clearly has a love and passion for sharing his vast knowledge about Charleston. We got to learn not just about the buildings and architecture but the fascinating stories behind Charleston's rich history. Would absolutely recommend!

I have taken quite a few walking tours of Charleston and this one is by far the best. Jim is personable, very knowledgeable and it is obvious he loves this city. We walked down the streets and alleys away from the crowds and it allowed us to see and hear about things we might not of found on our own. I highly recommend this tour.

It is terrific to hear that Jim's tour was the best you have been on. What a compliment! Jim will be honored by the comparison and thrilled to know he was able to deliver such a notable experience. We look forward to sharing another walk with you soon!

This was my second trip to Charleston and I learned things from Evans that I didn’t learn on a previous tour. He was entertaining, fun and very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. A great tour!

poor time management

Not a good time manager, Evan's went 40 minutes over. He likes to talk, it was difficult to get a question in and then the answer was abrupt. He doesn't like being interrupted. Enjoyed Charleston nonetheless.

Nice to see the city on foot...

Nice to see the city on foot. Definitely a different perspective than coach. However, it can get very hot in Charleston so take that into consideration. I was exhausted by the end. Tour guide over romanticized the history. As an African American, I do not want the story of slavery left out. Slaves built that beautiful homes and other structures.Tell the whole story.
