Mark Jones was the best. Fitting knowledge. Entertaining. Good pace! He spoke loudly enough. Kept the group safe and was courteous to casual sidewalk traffic.

Amy was seriously awesome! We got there over 15 mins early and she suggested to tour the graveyard across the way until the tour started, which was amazing. Once the tour started she stated she prioritized the shade and she did just that which these northerns needed! You can tell she loves her job, she had a diorama that she made herself to help envision what early Charleston was like along with several other graphics. She also took us off the beaten path and down some beautiful ally’s/streets that we wouldn’t have known about otherwise. Just wow, if you’re considering booking a tour, do it and request Amy!

Our guide, Mark, has an incredible wealth of knowledge that spans far beyond what the tour allows time for. Really fascinating historical points and architectural sites. Wish it had been a 4 hour tour!
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Thank you so much for joining us and for your vote of confidence. We hope you will join us on another tour. We recommend the "Alleys & Hidden Passages Tour" next time as it will go a little off the beaten path exploring some of the historic and picturesque alleyways in the historic district. Thank you again and hope to see you soon!

Mark was an excellent tour guide! He shared a lot of local history at the sites we visited and was very tolerant of our 1 year old, who just wanted to walk around in circles the whole time. Highly recommend! It was the perfect activity for our first day in Charleston and helped us get our bearings with different things we would want to come back to see again.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Thank you so much for your recommendation! We agree that a walking tour with one of our passionate and "in the know" guides like Mark is a great way to get acclimated to the city. We hope you will join us again, we are confident we can impress you a second time!
