We had a three hour walk and drive tour with Tom. Tom was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He knows the history and gives us insights on what happened in each location. But also he points out interesting points on every corner of downtown Charleston to educate us. He knows so much that he seems to know who owned which house in what year! This tour is better than the usual walking tour because he drives to take us to four or five different places so it is quite efficient. I have taken many guided tours in the U.S. And in Europe but this was one of the best experience.

Tom walked myself and my 17 year old son around Charleston.

He was incredibly informative and animated.

We enjoyed him very much.

My sisters and I were celebrating my sisters birthday! Tom was just fantastic. I am physically challenged and having the tour to be both walking and driving was perfect. Beforehand, Tom gave me all kinds of recommendations about things to do and where to eat, He even pulled his magic and helped us with getting reservations. Tom made my sisters and I feel SO special. He LOVED sharing his beloved city with us. He was so warm and friendly. We had such an awesome visit to Charleston and felt Tom’s enthusiasm that all of us wIll come back. TAKE THIS TOUR. You will love it. Tom makes you feel at home!!

My husband and I spent the afternoon touring Charleston with Tom. It was a wonderful way to explore the city and was a very informative tour of just 4 people (we wanted a small private tour rather than a large mob of tourists since we like asking lots of questions)! We learned all about the city's fascinating history, including it's architecture, culture, and prominent figures from the colonial era through reconstruction wth some fun stories and myths thrown in.

Tom himself is a true southern gentleman, a proud sixth generation Charlestonian! Before even arriving, Tom was very responsive to emails. He provided several great restaurant recommendations so we could book ahead of time and was kind enough to add us on to the tour of another couple when our flight was cancelled last minute (luckily they agreed). He felt like a new friend by the end of our trip!

My husband and I spent a lovely afternoon touring Charleston with our guide Tom. We prefer very small groups for touring because you can converse with your guide and others which is preferable to being herded like cattle on larger tours. You learn a lot more this way as well.

Tom is extremely knowledgeable and generous with his time. We definitely got to see and learn more about Charleston than we ever would have on our own. We highly recommend touring with Tom!
