This was our first visit to Charleston. Our driver Jeff was in touch with us the night before our tour and kindly picked us up from our hotel. He provided us with a map so we could follow along on the route. He is so knowledgeable about the history of Charleston and he drove us around to all the key sites. It was the perfect way to get acquainted with the city and hear about the rich history here! Highly recommend this tour!!

Jeff was great! He took us all around the city and gave us a great overview of the history and the various communities. Without him we would have never seen the Citadel, learned about it and gotten to see all the various communities around Charleston. He was a great guide--knowledgeable, informative and fun! Highly recommend this tour!
