Great guide, need more history on slavery
Oct 2021
Sean was witty, friendly and seemingly serious about getting his facts right. He included lots of interesting tidbits, but I didn't get a sense of what drove the success of Charleston up to the Civil War. He said it was the third richest city in the North America thanks to blue dye, cotton and rice, but without mentioning that the slaves produced all of that wealth and the slave trade was central to the economy for its first 200 years. This needs to be brought in when pointing to the grand mansions, there thanks to slave labor. He mentioned slavery in passing when I think it must have been the central story of the city. Still, I do appreciate what it must take to be the driver and guide at the same time and he was extremely good at both.

Profits over customer service.
This tour company called us an hour before our tour was scheduled to start and cancelled the tour. Fortunately I was able to book the same tour at the same time for less money with another company. If maintaining a schedule is important to you book with another company. All the companies have 90 minute tours that talk about the same things and go to the same places.

Very informative tour
There were 6 of us on this tour. We’ve been to Charleston before, but never took the tour. Our guide was very informative, used both history and local stories, we saw churches, The Painted Ladies and actually drove through the Citadel. It was a great tour, highly recommend!

Not what we expected, poor communication
First we received a telephone call from the company as we just paid for the parking and was told that our 1:30 tour was canceled and they rebooked us for the 3:30 tour, so we had to pay for more parking. They said they called my wife’s phone and couldn’t leave a message BUT they had my email address where they could have sent a message long before 25 minutes prior to the departure.
The driver was nice but sounded like he was reading a script instead of communicating with the passengers.
Overall the tour wasn’t what we expected as compared to other tours that we’ve done in other cities. In my opinion it was a waste of my time and money. Wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

Fun day touring Charleston!
Tour was wonderful! Have never been in the Charleston area before - we were shown a variety of different sites and much history was shared. Both my husband and I were pleasantly surprised the Citadel was included in the tour. Based on our adventures today - we know what areas we want to visit tomorrow.
