Great introduction to the history of Charleston
, Jun 2021
Evans is an OUTSTANDING guide. It is so sad that he is moving to Florida in a few days. Others will not be able to benefit from his extensive knowledge, love of the city, and easy delivery. My wife and I had booked a similar walking tour in the morning, that is, both tours covered several of the same sites. This was our first trip to Charleston, and it is our experience that guides have different and, thus, valuable perspectives. This proved true once again. Our morning tour was also a 5-star experience led by a PhD in History with a dissertation written on the South Carolina legislature during the Civil War. He was also a lecturer at the Citadel before the pandemic. Evans spoke from the perspective of a native Charlestonian with multiple generations having lived in the area.
Good info..wrong tour for me.

I thought there would be more walking for a walking tour. There was a lot of standing in one spot. This was not good for legs…
From 17-60 all enjoyed!
, Jun 2021
We enjoyed the walking tour. It was very informative with a humorous twist. We were a group of 7 from 17-60 and we all equally enjoyed it. Would not recommend if any of your group members have limitations like a wheelchair as there was someone else in another party that came through and they struggled on the cobblestone.
Great Experience fun info aboutTheFood

Dennis was an excellent guide. He was enthusiastic about the rich history of Charleston. He was animated and funny and was able to pack a lot of content into the 2 hour tour. I would recommend his tour to anyone interested in learning more about all this city has to offer.
