Jeff did an absolute great job showing my wife and I around Charleston. He focused on things we were interested in and answered all of our questions. We always do "private" tours where ever we go, and this was one of the best!

Hi Cathy. So glad you enjoyed my walking tour. We just had an epic snow storm, now Charleston looks a bit like your native New England! Hope you can come back again.

The guide was very sweet and fun and the tour was extremely educational and interesting. I learned a plethora of facts about a variety of things such as current events, botany, history, religion and local lore.
