My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. Brian was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was just the two of us and the tour didn't drag or have any awkwardness at all. We had to reschedule our tour due to a cancelled flight but Brian was very easy to work with to reschedule to another day. I would highly recommend... More

Bryan was a great guide, you can tell he loves what he does, he's eager to answer questions. Topics covered were the civil and revolutionary wars, pirates, architecture, and so much more. Fantastic.

It was a fun tour. Great way to spend a sunny and warm November day in Charleston. It was also a nice way to get to know the city. Brian was very knowledgeable. I loved his storytelling of historical events. It made learning of history a lot of fun. I highly recommend his tour. The cost is well worth it.

Brian was an enthusiastic guide. He knew things he couldn't have been expected to know. For example, how the New Madrid MO earthquake of 1812 compared to the big Charleston earthquake. I would certainly recommend him. FYI--Our tour did run over 45 minutes but that was fine with us. To me if meant we got more information. You might want... More
