    We really enjoyed the narrated bus tour. The guide was so knowledgeable and proved so much information. It was great. Unfortunately the house tour hours changed…to once an hour on the hour. We couldn’t wait around 45 minutes for it so we missed that. Communications should have been better to the guide. She was under the impression it was every half hour. The change to the house tour is why we can’t give you an Excellent rating.

    Our coach was clean and comfortable and had room for all the passengers. The tour guide was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept us informed of all the historical places that we were seeing. He really MADE the tour. He was extremely easy to understand, was very pleasant and friendly and made our tour a GRAND SUCCESS. He is an asset to your organization. Thank you . Sandra and Reza Cader. Hinesville Ga USA

    There were 8 of us in our party. A girls weekend. The combo tour was our last activity before departing Charleston. The bus tour was nice, however our guide was very monitone and to be honest, I didnt catch much of the information. The sights were beautiful and well worth the time. The Mansion was beautiful. The grounds delightful. I would reccomend it to friends. The history is incredible.
