The personal touch of this tour was wonderful! We were taken to places other tours don’t go. We enjoyed every minute and the two hours flew by! Our guide was an eighth generation Charlestonian and his knowledge was evident!

This was our first visit to Charleston. Our driver Jeff was in touch with us the night before our tour and kindly picked us up from our hotel. He provided us with a map so we could follow along on the route. He is so knowledgeable about the history of Charleston and he drove us around to all the key sites. It was the perfect way to get acquainted with the city and hear about the rich history here! Highly recommend this tour!!

Jeff was great! He took us all around the city and gave us a great overview of the history and the various communities. Without him we would have never seen the Citadel, learned about it and gotten to see all the various communities around Charleston. He was a great guide--knowledgeable, informative and fun! Highly recommend this tour!

Our guide, Jeff provided a wonderful tour of Charleston. He is very knowledgeable about Charleston's history. He pointed out sites and buildings of interest. We saw historic homes and learned about who lived in them. He had a book with old photos and would do a "then and now" when we were looking at a particular building or site. He also took us to the Citadel and an area called Harlston which was very interesting. He was happy to answer any questions we had and graciously dropped us off at a restaurant where we had reservations following the tour. We had a very comfortable ride in his vehicle. Jeff and his tour are highly recommended!

The most memorable part was the entire experience. Jeff's knowledge of the history of "Charles town"is unmatchable. I recommend this private tour to anyone who lives or visits Charleston.
