Franklin gave us a great tour! We got much more than the 90 minutes we paid for. His passion for the subject matter was palpable. I plan on bringing my Grandsons back to take a tour with Franklin.

There is little space here to do justice to the Frankly Black History Tour conducted by Mr. Franklin Williams. I am a native of Charleston and was making one of my infrequent visits to town. I left town feeling enlightened and honored to have spent...More

If you're curious about History and you're not satisfied with the cookie cutter, text book version of it, you found your crowd! Franklin is the best tour guide in town. He provokes interrogation, exposes facts and celebrates the contributions of those who are not mentioned...More

In a city as beautiful as historic Charleston, it’s easy to simply immerse yourself in the charm. But I felt like something was missing from the Disney-esque, frozen-in-time feeling being pushed on tourists. I’m so glad we heard about Franklin’s walking tour because it gave...More

Fascinating! It was great to hear about a part of Charleston history that’s not usually discussed. Wish there were more tours like this.

Franklin's incredible tour of Charleston and the city's rich African-American history is not to be missed! We especially enjoyed learning about artist and blacksmith Philip Simmons and appreciated Franklin's recommendations for other attractions in the area, particularly the Aiken-Rhett house. We also were interested to...More

This was one of the best and most informative tours I have taken in Charleston. He provided alot of information about Charleston's past and the future. Great history tour of the unsung African Americans and their contributions to Charleston.

Franklyn was amazing and interesting to listen to. I learned a lot from him about the social dynamics of life in the colonial, antebellum era and it shattered some preconceptions. I knew that basically everything in the city was build by black hands, mostly West...More
