This historical tour was a perfect way to introduce our company to Charleston. It was the right length, and our group was small and we could hear everything our guide said. He was very knowledgeable and added interesting stories and humor.

Bill was our tour guide and he did a great job! Right amount of history to where it was boring. Great sense of humor. The 2 hr tour went by so fast but it was perfect. Weather was also great which helped.

Thank you for your question! All of our tours are conducted outside and while we are frequently stopping to hear the stories, we do not usually have any opportunities to actually sit down. Hope that helps!
