We took the afternoon tour on a Sunday. We drive down from Myrtle Beach to spend the day in Charleston. Our only problem was running into some traffic on the drive which put us a little behind. We had a little difficulty finding where to...More

Enjoyed the stroll through side streets and alleyways. Got to see some beautiful old homes and peek in the courtyards. Would have liked a little less talking and more strolling.

Great experience. Martha Middleton’s intimate knowledge of Charleston based on her personal background added a wonderful dimension to the guided tour. Highly recommend it.

I took this tour a few weeks ago. The first mention of slavery was 55 minutes into the tour. I know because I looked at my watch, astounded that it had taken so long. Despite a sprawling, detailed history of Charleston's colonial founding, the economics...More

The Middleton Sisters really know their stuff! And learning about the history of Charleston on one of their walking tours shouldn't be missed when you are visiting the city.

This was the best walking tour I have done! It was very informative and interesting to learn from an authentic historian. Martha’s personal history and ending the tour in her family’s garden made the tour very special.

I had the most amazing history tour of this most interesting city that was led by the most warm, friendly, welcoming host I can remember. She(sorry ... I can't remember her name) was also a long time local and a historian from the local College....More

Yeah, this might wear out a five-year-old. You walk slow and stand around a bit. After two hours, my kids were getting tired, and they are 10 and 13. if you are willing to leave after an hour or so, that could be a solution... More
