I was a little concerned when the tour guide skateboarded into the office, but he turned out to be a polite and knowledgable tour guide. He took us to a variety of pubs and bars on a walking tour of Charleston, and was a wealth of knowledge on the city. The only negative for me was the "information overload" on... More

I would recommend this tour to anyone and if you can, book a private tour. I was glad we went to a variety of different types of pubs and bars. Alan was a great guide and really knew how to present stories that our group was interested in. **Easy to make reservations, great price, very reliable company, and dependable communication... More

Alan and Mike do a great job with this tour. I have taken both my parents and my fiance's parents on this tour during their recent visits. It's a great way to learn about the history of Charleston..while drinking. We had so much fun on the first tour we cancelled our late dinner reservations. I would recommend having an early... More

You don't have to drink to enjoy the Pub Stroll (I was pregnant when I went and still had a fun time.) The staff was friendly and knowledgable. You spend just enough time at each location to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy your drink without rushing (judging from my friends expereinces). The history is somewhat pub/alcohol related but that... More

Met at Washington Park which some folks claimed to be a bit tough to find - hint, look for the GW statue ;) There were about 10 of us on a Friday night. Mike took us to 4 pubs while telling us many stories - he tended to focus on fun tales of debauchery throughout Charleston's history. Suggest you schedule... More

Tour covered a wide range of history. The tour guide definitely knew his stuff. Visited several bars within the old town and had plenty of time to enjoy the libations. Look forward to experiencing their other tours on my next trip to charleston.

Me and my girlfriend (both 24 years old) went down to Charleston for New Years and decided this was the best way to start the trip. It turned out to be one of the best nights of my life. Mike is a great public speaker and knew a ton about the history of Charleston. He educated us on the people... More

Each December, my old college sorority sisters and I have a reunion in Charleston. This was our third annual trip and we were looking for something new and fun to do! We have taken the carriage rides and while they were pretty informative, they weren't too exciting and couldn't really hold our interest. We were thrilled to find the Pub... More

A great way to see the night life of historic Charleston . The stories told and the pubs visited made a very enjoyable few hours. I was skeptical that it might be for the younger crowd but i was diffidently great for any age over 21. The guide was full of tidbits of facts - and each time is different... More
