Our city tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about local history and showed us some pretty interesting places. Boone Hall was amazing! We got some really good recommendations of things to do while we were there and we had plenty of time to do it all. I highly recommend the Gullah show, it was phenomenal and a great learning experience.

The Gullah Geechie woman in the first slave house was excellent story teller. Highly recommend this stop. Also the speakers near the other end of the slave houses were all very informative. Not impressed with the house tour. All the greeters were extremely friendly and helpful

Our guide for the city our was Roy. Wonderful experience. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Then Scot drove us out to Boon Plantation. Also just wonderful. Pleasant, cheerful and very interesting narrative from both guides. Great tour to take. Well worth it,

Our tour guides were very welcoming and friendly! We enjoyed learning the history of Charleston!

Excellent way to see the city and learn additional history.
