We were able to see much more of Charleston, and in an air conditioned vehicle. Mr Zimmerman was very knowledgeable and was able to get us many details of all points of interest.

In a Nutshell...

Fantastic knowledge of the area. Indeed, a lot of information was conveyed in two hours but it wasn't overwhelming. Jeff is personable. The tour might be improved by offering two or three options with different emphasis and letting the customer choose one of them instead of "one size fits all." Also to make it more interactive vs. the more "scripted" presentation to allow for more spontaneous back and forth between Jeff and the guests.
